"Cocaine Bear" gets interviewed at the Landmark Pasadena



Cocaine Bear Cocaine Bear is a 2023 American comedy horror film directed and produced by Elizabeth Banks and written by Jimmy Warden.[6] It is loosely inspired by the true story of the "Cocaine Bear", an American black bear that ingested millions of dollars of lost cocaine in 1985. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Keri Russell, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Christian Convery, Alden Ehrenreich, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Margo Martindale, and Ray Liotta in the lead roles. The film marked the posthumous release for Liotta who died on May 26, 2022, with the film being dedicated to his memory.[7] Cocaine Bear was released in the United States on February 24, 2023, by Universal Pictures. Plot In 1985, drug smuggler Andrew C. Thornton II drops a shipment of cocaine from his plane. He attempts to parachute out with a drug-filled duffel bag, but knocks himself unconscious on the doorframe, causing him to fall to his death. His body lands in Knoxville, Tennessee where he is identified by Bob, a local detective. He concludes that the cocaine is likely from St. Louis drug kingpin Syd White, and the remainder is missing. Meanwhile, in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, an American black bear eats some of the cocaine, becoming highly aggressive and attacking two hikers, Elsa and Olaf, killing the former. In northeast Georgia, middle schooler Dee Dee lives with her mom, Sari, a nurse. Upset at her mother for changing their weekend plans so they can go out of town to Nashville with Sari's new boyfriend, Dee Dee skips school with her best friend Henry in order to spray paint the falls. On the trail to the falls, the pair finds a lost brick of cocaine, and ingest some before they're attacked by the bear. Sari ventures into the forest to find the kids with park ranger Liz and her crush, Peter. The three find Henry clinging to a tree, hiding from the bear. The bear attacks, sending Peter stumbling through a pile of cocaine and slashing Liz in the process. Attracted to a cocaine-coated Peter, the bear ignores Henry and kills Peter. Sari and Henry flee deeper into the forest, and Liz sends for help. #CocaineBear #elizabethbanks #universalpictures #fabtv
