Cocaine Bear: 'Most insane film ever made' is based on REAL-LIFE events - Watch trailer
Film fanatics were quick to question its storyline and the inspiration behind it
The trailer for Cocaine Bear has been released with the movie set to come out in 2023.
Announced earlier this year, film fanatics were quick to question its storyline and the inspiration behind it.
Unbelievably, the plot is based on a true story.
In 1985 a 175lb black bear ate a duffel bag full of cocaine after Andrew Thornton, a convicted drug smuggler, abandoned it.
The bear then overdosed and its body was found three months later next to 40 plastic containers of cocaine.
In the movie however, the bear proceeds to go on a rampage, attacking and murdering anyone who gets in its way.
Eager movie fanatics were quick to react to the trailer with many sharing their excitement on Twitter.
One user wrote “most anticipated movie of 2023” while another shared an image of Martic Scorsese saying “this is cinema”.
Another excited fan tweeted “I'm so unironically amped for this movie it's insane. The Cocaine Bear is the greatest thing to ever happen in history."
The movie boasts a star studded cast which includes Keri Russell, Margo Martindale and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
It is directed by Pitch Perfect star Elizabeth Banks.
It is also one of Ray Liotta’s final screen roles after he died earlier this year.
Cocaine Bear is released in the UK on 24th February 2023.
