Universal Pictures has released the trailer for Elizabeth Banks’ “Cocaine Bear” starring Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Christian Convery-Jennings, Alden Ehrenreich, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Hoekstra, Aaron Holliday, Margo Martindale & Ray Liotta. The film will be released in theaters on February 24th, 2023.
Plot Synopsis: Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner’s plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.
What do you all think of the trailer? We already have a contender for the film title of the year already. In all seriousness, though, I must admit, I had no idea what to expect from this, but it looks like Elizabeth Banks has found the right comedic tone for this wild story to make it as entertaining for a modern audience as possible. With brutal kills, over-the-top performances, and a cocaine-fueled CGI killer bear, how could this not be a great B-movie time at the theaters this February? What do you all think, though?
