NEW YORK: A new trailer for Colossal has landed online, giving us another look at filmmaker Nacho Vigalando’s wholly unique new movie.
The film stars Anne Hathaway as Gloria, a woman whose life is falling to pieces thanks to a series of poor life choices and a bit too much boozing. When she loses her job and gets kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, Gloria has to relocate to her hometown, where she reunites with a childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis) and finds herself slipping back into her destructive patterns in no time.
At the same time, a giant Kaiju starts popping up in Soeul, South Korea; destroying everything in its path, and Gloria starts to realize that she shares a psychic connection with the monster and her reckless behavior threatens to destroy more than just her relationships.
On the surface this film looks like it would be pretty amusing, one trick pony of a film, but to reveal more would ruin seeing it for the first time. The fact is, Colossal is about much more than a woman who controls a kaiju, but watching the story unfold is part of the fun.
The film also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Dan Stevens, and Austin Stowell. Colossal opens in theaters on April 7th.
