The poster for the upcoming thriller Cocaine Bear was released today. The film is based on true events that occurred in 1985 when a drug runner’s plane crashed in a Georgia forest and what happens after a black bear discovers this lost cargo and ingests the cocaine. It follows how a group of cops, criminals, tourists, and teens have their lives turned upside down when the bear goes on coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.
