Everyone’s getting smoked in new American Ultra trailer

The latest trailer for American Ultra has arrived, and it’s filled with even more footage of Jesse Eisenberg’s perpetually stoned sleeper agent kicking butt and killing bad guys with kitchen wares.

The new trailer debuted on Fandango, and offers yet another preview of the film about a highly trained government sleeper agent (Eisenberg) whose activation goes awry due to his, well … extracurricular … hobbies. His small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) suddenly takes a deadly turn when he finds himself embroiled in a government operation that endangers everything he holds dear, and he must summon his inner action hero to save the day.

Along with Eisenberg and Stewart, the film also stars Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), Bill Pullman (Independence Day), John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge), Connie Britton (American Horror Story), Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), prolific stunt actor Monique Ganderton (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Lavell Crawford (Breaking Bad). The film’s script was penned by Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis, and the movie is directed by Project X filmmaker Nima Nourizadeh.

In one of the more unique promotional campaigns to hit the mega-popular Comic-Con International in San Diego, Lionsgate recently offered free medical marijuana to any SDCC attendees with government-issued identification and a legal medicinal cannabis card. The free marijuana was accompanied by rolling papers and various other American Ultra promotional items that could be scanned for online access to clips and other content from the film.

The film serves as a reunion of sorts for stars Eisenberg and Stewart, who co-starred in the 2009 film Adventureland, about a pair of slackers (sensing a trend here?) working at an amusement park over the course of a summer.

American Ultra is scheduled to hit theaters August 21.
