Jesse Eisenberg Is the Stoner Jason Bourne in the Trailer for American Ultra    

The weirdly perfect on-screen couple of Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart is getting together once again, but this time they’re facing a lot more than customers trying to cheat at the ring toss. In American Ultra, Eisenberg plays a stoner who’s just L-I-V-I-N until he gets activated as a Jason Bourne–caliber killer. With his newly acquired skills as a super soldier, Eisenberg must rescue his fellow-stoner girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) who, to her credit, also appears to be able to hold her own in cannabis-fueled combat.

The supporting cast, which includes Connie Britton, Topher Grace, and John Leguizamo, ups the comedic potential—though the real star of this trailer might be that cast iron skillet. The movie is due out on Aug. 21.
