“The bear, it f—ing did cocaine,” Ehrenreich shouts at Liotta. “A bear did cocaine!”
“Let’s see what kind of effect that has on him,” adds Isiah Whitlock Jr., speaking for us all.
Elsewhere in the trailer, a concerned mother, played by Keri Russell, tries to find her lost daughter (Brooklynn Prince) and her friend (Christian Convery), who were hanging out together in the woods, unaware of the cocaine bear on the loose.
Banks, who previously directed 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2 and the 2019 Charlie’s Angels reboot, is joined in the, uh, high-stakes drama by Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ice Cube, Matthew Rhys, and Margo Martindale. Cocaine Bear is written by Jimmy Warden (Netfilx’s The Babysitter: Killer Queen) and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie).
Cocaine Bear blows into theaters Feb. 24, 2023. Watch the trailer above.
