If you’re looking for a movie to watch this weekend, Cocaine Bear is now available to stream on Peacock. For those just hearing about Cocaine Bear for the first time, this is one of the latest movies to take the internet by storm, and following M3GAN, is the latest viral hit to debut on the Peacock streaming service.
Cocaine Bear was released in the United States on February 24, 2023 and the basic premise is that a 500-pound bear has managed to ingest a huge amount of cocaine. As a result, the coke-fueled bear is now on a rampage with a random group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens all getting caught up in the action.
Here’s the trailer:
Following its stint in the theaters, Cocaine Bear has now made its way to streaming and can be watched at home through Peacock. For those new to this streaming service, a paid subscription is required and the cheapest option is the $4.99 per month Premium plan. For those that would prefer to sign up to an ad-free viewing experience, Peacock’s Premium Plus plan costs $9.99 per month.
If you are likely to remain subscribed for longer than a few months, then it might be worth checking out this current deal which reduces the price of Peacock’s Premium annual plan down from $49.99 to $19.99.
For background, Cocaine Bear is reportedly based on true events, with the inspiration for the movie being the 1985 true story of a drug runner’s plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it.
For those interested in finding out more about the real events, Peacock has also now released Cocaine Bear: The True Story. According to Peacock’s description, this 51-minute documentary tells the “bizarre, stranger-than-fiction tale behind the hit Hollywood movie “Cocaine Bear” involving international drug smuggling, murder and mayhem.”
Here’s the trailer:
As is the case with the Cocaine Bear movie, the Cocaine Bear: The True Story documentary is available to watch with a standard Peacock Premium plan, so no additional purchase is necessary.
