Well, if this ain’t the niftiest way to backdrop a monster movie, I’m at a loss!?! Anne Hathaway, Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis and Tim Blake Nelson star in Colossal which tells the tale of a party girl drunk whose last big night on the turps coincides with a giant monster tearing Seoul apart.
Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes) directs this genre mash which might be a near impossible sell for audiences were it not for the presence of Hathaway.
Synopsis: Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene girl who is thrust into crisis when her boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), grows sick of her antics and kicks her out of their apartment. With no other options, she moves back to her hometown and quickly regresses, drinking every night until last call and accepting a job at a bar owned by her childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). One day she wakes up and blurrily finds out that Seoul was terrorized by a giant creature the night before. Eventually, Gloria begins to suspect her own drunken actions are bizarrely connected to the monster rampaging in South Korea.
