The theatrical trailer for Colossal has arrived.
The long-gestating monster epic from Nacho Vigalondo finally emerged last month with a teaser trailer, but now we have a first full-on look at what is sure to be an original, unique take on the monster genre.
Anne Hathway’s Gloria is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend, Tim, and is forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. She reconnects with childhood friend Oscar, a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies, and resumes her drinking lifestyle.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a larger-than-life creature begins attacking Seoul, South Korea on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover that her every move at a local playground is being mimicked on a catastrophic scale by the rampaging beast. When Gloria’s friends get wind of the bizarre phenomenon, a second, more destructive creature emerges, prompting an epic showdown between the two monsters.
Colossal stars Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell. It will be released on April 7.
