Cocaine Bear tells the unbelievable real-life story of how a black bear consumed 136 kg of white powder

Behold, folks, as this February comes a movie based on the real-life story of a bear who consumed over 300 pounds (136 kg) of cocaine.

Yes, that’s right, we’ve finally found something more terrifying than a murderous black bear – and it’s a coked black bear leaving a path of war behind.

If you somehow lived under a rock and missed the trailer, cocaine bear tells the true story of a 226 kg (500 pound) bear who consumed staggering amounts of white powder.

Gatsby’s drug of choice had landed in the bear’s hands – or paws, should we say – which fell from a plane piloted by drug dealer Andrew Thornton.

Later that day, Thornton died after skydiving with tons of drugs that proved to be too heavy.

The upcoming outrageous comedy stars Keri Russell (Americans), Ray Liotta (The Many Saints of Newark), Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), O’Shea Jackson Jr (Straight outta Compton) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (modern family).

These eccentric cops, criminals, tourists and teenagers converge in a Georgian forest when the apex predator goes on a coke-out for more beatings… and blood.

These unlikely strangers must join forces to survive the attack.

Elizabeth Banks (Perfect, Charlie’s Angels) returns to the director’s chair to helm this wild pic.

She recently spoke to TotalFilm Magazine and said the film lives up to its unforgettable name.

Banks added that the film was set during the emergence of crack cocaine in major cities across the United States as the war on drugs campaign began to gain momentum in the 1980s.

She said: “This movie is set in 1985, which is the height of all these crack programs in America. So many of these policies went off the rails, and this bear was collateral damage.

“Then the other thing is [the film] on nature itself. We as human beings, with our pride, feel that we can control nature. [But] if you f**k with nature, nature will f**k with you.

Cocaine Bear is only set to hit theaters on February 23.
