I think it was a true shock to people that the movie Cocaine Bear actually performed well at the box office. Not only did it perform well, but I am willing to bet many of your friends, who you’d never have suspected, went to go see it. And for those that went to see it, you went in not expecting much at all. Only THEN did you come out feeling pleasantly surprised. If you went in expecting a blockbuster movie that was set to win awards, then you were probably disappointed. But then again, what are you expecting when you know that the movie is about a bear high on cocaine? Hopefully not much.
Not sure if many of you know this, but the movie is based on true events. It was an incident that took place back in 1985 when a drug runner’s plane crashed. That part does take place in the movie. But does a bear actually eat the cocaine and kill people? NO. So what did the bear actually do? What inspired this movie that is now taking over the box office? We are diving deep into the facts of the movie and what actually happened.
