Elizabeth Banks revealed a connection between James Gunn’s two movies she was part of

In order to infuse Cocaine BearElizabeth Banks‘ most recent film, with a distinctive tone, she took inspiration from her work with filmmaker James Gunn. The mood of the movie strongly resembles that of Gunn’s Slither and Brightburn. These were the two movies with Banks in leading roles that Gunn either produced or directed. Slither was Gunn’s one of the most goriest horror movies while Brightburn is considered Gunn’s darkest superhero movie. And both the movies have something in common.

Banks emphasized the major issue of motherhood. She further adds about the difficulties it presents in an interview with SyFy. She points out the common themes between the two movies. Banks states while talking to SyFy, “This honestly was all about being a mom. The idea of coming in and having to parent a problem child, as we like to say nicely about Brandon in the movie, and what are the limits of unconditional love for this woman.” Both films explore the challenges of raising challenging kids. They also deal with the limitations of unconditional love, which are frequently hidden by denial.

In Slither, Banks’ character struggles with the breakdown of their marriage as her spouse becomes a host for an alien parasite.
