What Is The Plot of Cocaine Bear?
As mentioned earlier, Cocaine Bear is based on true events and takes place all the way back in December 1985. A convicted drug smuggler was piloting a plane but soon enough he realizes that his cargo was too heavy and decides to lighten the load, and that’s where all the trouble begins. The load that he drops from the plane is nothing but a duffel bag full of cocaine. The drug smuggler aka the pilot didn’t make it alive as he plummeted to his own death, leaving behind a whole lot of cocaine out in the open. Cocaine Bear follows the story of cops, tourists, teens, criminals, and of course, a bear. Now as we focus on the title, Cocaine Bear, it is safe to say that the duffel bag full of cocaine that dropped to the ground, the majority of it was consumed by an American black bear who stumbled upon it. As we all know, cocaine is a hard drug, and its effects of it on humans can be lethal when consumed in large amounts, so one can only imagine what would happen when a bear consumes more than anyone should, let alone a wild bear in a forest.
Cocaine Bear is a movie whose premise deals with the aftermath of the bear who is now under the influence of cocaine, and goes on a killing spree, sparing no one in sight. The forest is filled with cops, tourists, and teens, and it is only a matter of time before we see who survives a different kind of bear attack altogether. Cocaine Bear is going to be a mix of two very popular genres: horror and comedy, which only makes it all the more interesting. It will be interesting to see how the events unfold, and so far, this is all we know about the plot of Cocaine Bear, and it is more than enough for viewers to decide if they want to be a part of this experience because we surely do.
The Cast of Cocaine Bear
Well, the star of Cocaine Bear will be the bear, without a doubt. However, apart from the bear, several other cast members will be a part of Cocaine Bear. The cast of Cocaine Bear includes an array of versatile actors and actresses who have all come together to make this crazy story come to life and we can’t wait to see how their characters help drive the story, and also, who will survive the cocaine bear and make it out alive at the end of the movie? Some of these cast members include Margo Martindale, Alden Ehrenreich, Kahyun Kim, Shane Connellan, Scott Seiss, Kristofer Hivju, Brooklyn Prince, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson amongst others.

It isn’t long before you will get the chance to be hunted down by a bear under the influence of cocaine. Cocaine Bear will be officially released worldwide on the 24th of February, 2023. There is no doubt that a movie like Cocaine Bear deserves a big-screen treatment, and that is exactly what it will receive. The upcoming horror-comedy will be available to watch in theatres near you, and we can guarantee there will be moments when you will believe that you’re next in line for being eaten alive by the cocaine bear.
Is There a Trailer for Cocaine Bear?
The official trailer for Cocaine Bear recently dropped and nothing could possibly prepare you for the madness that’s about to follow. The trailer showcases how the story progresses, from the bear literally guzzling down a whole lot of cocaine and how his entire demeanor changes and decides to kill anyone and everyone in sight.
There are also plenty of humorous moments in the Cocaine Bear trailer, and we have Elizabeth Banks to thank for that. Of course, the premise of Cocaine Bear is fairly grim, and if you were faced against a bear like that, you’d probably not find it funny, but the movie has been written and directed in a way that you can’t help but laugh at the misery because who would have thought a bear high on cocaine would kill people? The trailer also boasts the horror element, and we can definitely expect a jump scare or two!
Undoubtedly, Cocaine Bear is going to be one of the unique movies in 2023 and we can’t wait to see how the audiences and critics receive it. However, from everything we know so far, we don’t see any reason why it won’t be a raging success. If the trailer teaches us anything, stay away from duffel bags full of cocaine and make sure you stay away from bears under influence of drugs.
