    The "Cocaine Bear" Trailer Is Out, And It's Everything You And The Internet Hoped It Would Be

    "Apex predator, high on cocaine, out of its mind"

    So, the official poster for an upcoming film called Cocaine Bear was released a few weeks ago, and when I saw it I didn't know whether to laugh or just shake my head. I was, however, intrigued.

    Well, the trailer for Cocaine Bear – Elizabeth Banks's new action comedy – has just come out, and it's most certainly won me over!

    The film stars the late Ray Liotta (his final role) and includes Kristofer Hivju, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ice Cube, Matthew Rhys, and Margo Martindale.

    Surprisingly, Cocaine Bear is based on true events. You heard that right, it's based on a black bear that devoured waaay too much cocaine.

    In 1985, drug smugglers dropped $20 million worth of cocaine packages in Georgia's Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest.

    Investigators discovered a torn duffel bag in the forest, and estimated that the bear had consumed "several million dollars worth of cocaine."

    From the moment the trailer dropped, the memes have been coming thick and fast.

    Despite it being about a rampaging coke-fueled apex predator, people think this is exactly what we/cinema need right now!

    Disney: "Let's send these hit movies to streaming but release the one that looks like Disney Channel circa 2004." Netflix: "Let's pull this hit movie from theaters after 1 week and leave like 100 mil on the table." Universal: "COCAINE BEAR! COMING THIS FEB ONLY IN THEATERS!"

    Studios: we need legacy sequels and returning franchises Universal: yes but also dancing murder dolls and cocaine bears and whatever Jordan Peele wants to do

    It's safe to say we can bearly contain our excitement.
