Anne Hathaway (The Intern, Interstellar) plays Gloria, a woman who is recently unemployed and prone to heavy drinking and partying. Fed up, her boyfriend (Dan Stevens, Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey) throws her out of their New York apartment and she is forced to move back to her hometown. Gloria hopes for a new start but ends up falling back in with her childhood friend, Oscar (Jason Sudeikis, Race, Sleeping with Other People), who runs a bar. After a night of drinking, Gloria awakens to news that a gigantic monster is terrorizing Seoul, South Korea. Gloria and Oscar gradually come to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. This wildly inventive and subversive new feature from Spanish horror filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo (Open Windows, Timecrimes) offers a welcome update to the conventional monster movie.

“Colossal wrings a great deal of fun — and also some genuine terror, by no means all of it monster-related — from its blithely bizarre conceit.”
“The film is at once funny and haunting, a bizarre thrill-ride disguised as an indie drama, and among the most beguiling movies of the year.”
