Cocaine Bear. Yes, you’re reading that right, and it’s the film you absolutely have to see as actress-turned-director Elizabeth Banks returns behind the camera for this full-on, crazy true-story thriller about an American Black Bear that unintentionally ingested cocaine and then goes on a murderous rampage through the backwoods of Kentucky. It just doesn’t get more cinematic than that, and the new trailer has arrived and it’s fucking WILD!
Watch the full trailer for Cocaine Bear NOW:
Here’s the full synopsis:
In a Kentucky forest, an American black bear goes on a murderous rampage after unintentionally ingesting cocaine.
Pulling from the true life story of a black bear that unintentionally ingested cocaine after a drug haul gone wrong, director Elizabeth Banks takes audiences back to the 1980s, and the untouched wilderness of Kentucky, as a group of drug dealers finds their stash raided by a 300kg American Black Bear, and which cocked out of its mind goes one hell of a rampage.
Mixing together white-knuckle scares with laugh-out-loud comedy, Cocaine Bear is shaping up to be an absolute genius bit of cinema, and this is a film that demands to be seen in cinemas. This trailer is an utter rush from beginning to end and audiences will be in for one hell of a ride with this new feature.
Find out why it’s never a good idea to coke the bear when Cocaine Bear arrives in cinemas next year on February 23, 2023.
