"Thrilling, funny, smart. An instant classic! -Coming Soon

"Determinedly bizarre, psychologically inquisitive and rather wonderful." -Time Out

"Monster movies aren't generally known for their subtlety, but leave it to Nacho Vigalondo to make one that keeps surprising its audience until the very end." -AV Club

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown, where she reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies (Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell).

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a larger-than-life creature begins attacking Seoul, South Korea on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. Gloria gradually comes to the horrific 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.

Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo ("Timecrimes," "Extraterrestrial," "Open Windows") unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. Featuring an empowering central performance by Hathaway, COLOSSAL is that rare beast: the story of a woman battling for her survival and taking control of her own life in the shadow of two very different monsters on either side of the world.
