Colossal looked interesting at first in this brief trailer, as Gloria (Anne Hathaway) realises much later than everyone else (thanks to being in a drunken stupor) that there’s a monster terrorising Seoul, just walking through buildings without looking down.
And then she realises that SHE is controlling it. But how? or why? We’re not told in this trailer, but it lost me as she starts dancing and, thus, everyone sees the monster dancing, too.
According to the billing, it’s all connected to the mental breakdown from which she’s suffering, none of which was hinted at in the trailer.
Written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, the film also stars Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis, Austin Stowell and Tim Blake Nelson.
Colossal is released in the US on April 7th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date.
