Directed by Timecrimes (2007) and Open Windows (2014) helmer Nacho Vigalondo, Colossal finds him putting his unique spin on the genre once again with a much more personal and humorous spin.
The film stars Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables) as Gloria, a woman whose life is falling to pieces thanks to a series of poor life choices and a bit too much boozing. When she loses her job and gets kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, Gloria has to relocate to her hometown, where she reunites with a childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis) and finds herself slipping back into her destructive patterns in no time. At the same time, a giant Kaiju starts pops up in South Korea destroying everything in its path, and Gloria starts to realise that she shares a psychic connection with the monster and her reckless behaviour threatens to destroy more than just her relationships.
With Dan Stevens (The Guest) and Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) also in the cast, Colossal is out in the US now and will arrive in UK cinemas on 19 May.
