Although its world premiere happened in September at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, Colossal — a film starring Anne Hathaway as a hot mess that can inexplicably control a giant monster — is being screened at the Sundance Film Festival starting tomorrow. To celebrate its inclusion in the festival and to start the marketing campaign for its April release, NEON has released (via EW) the first trailer.
After Gloria (Anne Hathaway) loses her job and is kicked out of her boyfriend’s apartment, she leaves her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
