Monster see, monster do in this film with an unusual story.
In the first teaser trailer for “Colossal,” Anne Hathaway stars as an aimless, unemployed young woman named Gloria who ends up back in her hometown when her life falls apart. Then, she sees news reports of a giant monster rampaging through Seoul, South Korea, and soon realizes that she’s somehow connected to the beast. Gloria can control its movements — which means she’s basically the monster herself. She can even make it dance. This looks like it could be fun.
It’s a totally weird, but interesting and unique premise from director Nacho Vigalondo. Not your usual kind of monster movie. With a mane of wild hair and those big, confused eyes. Hathaway looks the part of a total mess Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, Austin Stowell, and Dan Stevens also star.
“Colossal” premieres at the Sundance Film Festival this week, and opens in theaters in April.
