NEW YORK (AP) — Yes, “Cocaine Bear” is a real movie.

And it might be a hit.

Since the trailer first debuted for Elizabeth Banks’ very, very loosely based-on-a-true-story comedy has stoked a rabid zeitgeist. At a time when much in Hollywood can feel pre-packaged, the makers of “Cocaine Bear” think it can be a wild exception. Its makers, including producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, say that it’s time Hollywood got bolder and greenlight movies that don’t feel like they were dreamed up in a corporate boardroom.   And “Cocaine Bear” most definitely didn’t originate at the C-suite.

It opens in theaters Friday.
