Colossal teaser trailer reveals a twist in giant monster movies that could be hilarious.
Writer/director Nacho Vigalondo gave time travel movies a nice contribution with his 2007 Timecrimes film. Now, he gives Ane Hathaway Kinect-like control of a Kaiju rampaging through the city of Seoul.
We like the idea so much we hope no disappointing clichés stand between this promise of pure fun we are given in the teaser and the full movie.
The official synopsis from NEON:
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.
Colossal premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and is scheduled for release on April 7, 2017.
