Somehow, the existence of Colossal had slipped by me until now. If you’ve never heard of it either, it’s the new Anne Hathaway/ Jason Sudeikis movie about a woman who seems to be able to remotely control a Kaiju that is rampaging through Seoul Korea.
People who saw the film last year at Fantastic Fest universally loved it, with many placing it on their list of top ten films for the year. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until it gets released April 7, 2017.
Gloria (Anne Hathaway) drinks too hard and parties too much. Her boyfriend has enough of it and throws her out. Gloria returns to her hometown, dreaming of making a new start, but instead revives her childhood friendship with Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), who runs a bar. After drinking a night away with Oscar and his friends, he wakes up to discover a gigantic monster rampaging through Seoul and realizes that somehow the monster is connected to her.
