Cocaine Bear Gets R-Rated Funko Pop Figure and Stunning Mondo Poster
The upcoming movie stars Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Alden Ehrenreich.
In anticipation of the upcoming action thriller comedy cocaine bear, the film has collaborated with Funko and Mondo for an R-rated pop! Figure or collector’s poster.
ScreenRant originally announced the collaboration, which is set to be released in the coming weeks. The cute yet disturbing Mondo poster shows the film’s furry protagonist, a bear in the midst of a cocaine trip, in all his glory. The pop character, on the other hand, features the wild-eyed bear baring his teeth with blood all over his face and his claws grasping a dismembered limb with a hiking boot still attached. Due to the film’s R rating, Funko’s limited edition collectibles are for ages 18+ only.
Dolly AhluwaliaFunko’s Senior Vice President of Licensing and Emerging Brands, shared a statement about what makes this collaboration so special, saying:
“At Funko, a big part of our ethos is bringing IPs to life that celebrate a unique moment in pop culture. When we find these opportunities, we act quickly to bring products to our fans. When we first saw the trailer for Cocaine Bear we knew this was going to be a massive moment in the zeitgeist, which is why we immediately reached out to our partners at Universal and asked if we could create a film-inspired collection through ours Pop! And Mondo offers.”
“Cocaine Bear” was inspired by a true story
cocaine bear has not yet been released but has already attracted an impressive and passionate following thanks to marketing and social media buzz. Perhaps the most absurd detail of the film is that it is based on a true story. The film follows the story of a 500 pound black bear who consumes a substantial amount of cocaine from a duffel bag. The bear embarks on a drug-fueled killing spree and embarks on a pictorial killing spree, and a group of locals and tourists band together to survive the bear’s attacks and hopefully put an end to its trail of death and destruction.
The film was inspired by a true story of a black bear ingesting a loose bag of cocaine dropped from a drug smuggler’s plane in 1985. However, the killing spree that the film depicts is entirely fictional, as is the true story, which ended in the bear’s tragic overdose. Officials later found the bear and stuffed it. Now the real bear, named Pablo Escobear, is being stuffed and displayed in a trade story called “Kentucky for Kentucky” in Lexington, Kentucky.
cocaine bear is led by Elizabeth Banks and written by Jimmy Warden. It’s playing Ray Liotta, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Keri Russel, Kristofer Hivju, Alden Ehrenreich and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and other. The film is slated to hit theaters nationwide on February 24, 2023. Check out the new poster and pop figure below:
