In these uncertain times, I think I may have discovered the movie that we may all need… COCAINE BEAR!
You can read the straight-faced synopsis below, but I suggest going straight to the trailer, with the delightful and important knowledge that this film will be coming to a theater near you on February 23, 2023. 🙂
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.
