Watch: See Jesse Eisenberg Pop Pills in Trailer for 'Why Stop Now'

It's a far cry from "The Social Network" or Woody Allen's recent hit "To Rome With Love," but Jesse Eisenberg makes an indie splash back to the big screen with Phil Dorling and Ron Nyswaner's "Why Stop Now," a Sundance ensemble comedy previously known as "Predisposed." 

Also starring Melissa Leo and Tracy Morgan, the film follows a piano prodigy (Eisenberg) and his drug-addicted mother, Penny (Leo), who turn to a drug dealer (Morgan) when Penny is unable to enter rehab.

The film was a late entry at Sundance earlier this year. It hits stateside on August 17 in limited theaters. Check out the just-released trailer below:
