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

This outrageous comedy follows a group of oddballs who assemble in a Georgia forest when an apex predator goes on a coke-fueled bloody rampa

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

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

If you’ve somehow been living under a rock and missed the trailer, Cocaine Bear tells the real-life story of a 226 kg (500 pound) bear that consumed staggering amounts of the white powder.

The Gatsby drug of choice had landed in the bear’s hands - or paws, we should say - that fell out of a plane piloted by drug smuggler Andrew Thornton.

Later that day, Thornton died after parachuting with loads of drugs that proved too heavy.

The upcoming outrageous comedy stars Keri Russell (The 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 oddballs of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converge in a Georgia forest when the apex predator goes on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.

These unlikely strangers must join forces to survive the attack.

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

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

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

She said: "This film takes place in 1985, which is the height of all these programmes to combat crack in America. So many of those policies went sideways, and this bear was collateral damage.

“Then the other thing is [the film] about nature itself. We, as humans, with our hubris, feel that we can control nature. [But] if you f**k with nature, nature will f**k with you.”

Cocaine Bear is set to be released only in cinemas February 23.
