Nacho Vigalondo knew that he had a challenge on his hands when he was making the Anne Hathaway sci-fi thriller “Colossal.” “You’re dealing with real-life elements like domestic abuse, for example, and toxic relationships,” writer-director Vigalondo told TheWrap’s Steve Pond at Sundance on Saturday. “And, at the same time, you’re making a lot of jokes and making the effects.” The film, which screened this week at the Sundance Film Festival, stars Hathaway as a woman who discovers that severe catastrophic events involving a Godzilla-like creature are somehow connected to the mental breakdown from which she’s suffering. »

Neighborhood Food Drive’s synopsis should be a clue as to what kind of film it is: “Awful idiots fail at throwing a party over and over”. Director Jerzy Rose definitely wasn’t out to make a feel-good comedy with those emotional moments the more mainstream ones tend to tack on during the last 20 minutes. The idiots in question are Madeline (Lyra Hill) and Naomi (Bruce Bundy), the owners of an upscale yet curiously always empty restaurant. Wanting to supposedly help their community, they set about organizing food drives with the help of their dimbulb waiter Steven (Marcos Barnes), his flighty girlfriend Bianca (Ruby McCollister) and the couple’s douchey, bearded, Jason Sudeikis-type college prof David (Ted Tremper), who apparently has nothing better to do than hang...

Aside from telling interesting stories, Spanish writer/director Nacho Vigalondo's movies have something else in common: the director's often strange sense of humor. His latest movie, which is also his biggest to date, is no exception.
Yes, Hathaway is, quite literally, playing a monster.
The premise is ridiculous and the first trailer suggests the movie is just as nutty. Kaiju dancing is not exactly as funny as I thought it would be but this looks promising.

Even if you’re a monster movie aficionado, it’s likely you’ve never seen one quite like Nacho Vigalondo‘s Colossal. Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, whose charm helps paper over the fact that she’s a total mess. Unemployed and freshly single, she moves back to her hometown and reconnects with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) who becomes her new drinking […]

Last fall, we got our first look at Colossal with the first photos featuring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, before the film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival. Today we have the first trailer, which shows that a massive monster has surfaced in Seoul, South Korea, and has started cutting a path of destruction through the city. Little does anyone know that a small town woman (Anne Hathaway) has a bizarre connection to this monster.
Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work 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. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South 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 »
As far as movie premises go, having a story about a past-her-prime party girl with an inexplicable psychic connection to a giant monster terrorizing South Korea is pretty out there. Still, after seeing the first trailer for Colossal (which features the movie premise in question), we're kind of into it. Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, a woman spiraling through a mental breakdown who discovers that all of her movements (especially dancing) are mirrored by the massive, Godzilla-like creature stomping its way through Seoul. There's not much to go off of in the supershort trailer, but we presume costars Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, and Dan Stevens will be able to help Gloria figure it all out.

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.
Colossal is set for release on April 7th in the States. »

"You ever notice how it keeps destroying everything in its path, but it never looks down." A teaser trailer has debuted for a fun sci-fi thriller from eccentric Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo, of the cult hit Timecrimes previously. His latest is a film called Colossal, a metaphorical action thriller starring Anne Hathaway. The concept is odd in that she basically becomes a giant monster that terrorizes Seoul, South Korea. You just need to see the trailer to get an idea, or you just need to go see the film and have a blast. The cast includes Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, Austin Stowell, Rukiya Bernard, and Agam Darshi. This premiered at festivals last year, but is also playing at Sundance this month. Enjoy. Here's the first international teaser trailer for Nacho Vigalondo's Colossal, direct from YouTube: Gloria (Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene girl who »

Finding out that a massive monster is attacking a city would be shocking in itself, but when Gloria (Anne Hathaway) discovers that she can control the creature from halfway across the world, she enters a whole new level of amazement, as shown in the film’s teaser trailer (unveiled by EW) ahead of its Sundance screening.
Synopsis: “An unapologetic party girl dreams of a fresh start only to discover a mysterious and fantastical connection between herself and a city-wrecking monster on the other side of the globe.”
Written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Colossal stars Anne Hathaway, Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, and Austin Stowell. Following its time on the big screen at Sundance, Colossal will be released in theaters on April 7th by Neon.

Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial proved that Nacho Vigalondo could execute smart, inventive science-fiction with a fraction of the budget as those of Hollywood tentpoles. With his latest film, he’s certainly stepping up his scope in terms of cast and scale, but Colossal looks to retain much of the director’s specific approach to storytelling. The film, whose first teaser arrived today ahead of a Sundance debut, follows Anne Hathaway, whose alcoholism may have something today with a kaiju attack across the world. Also starring Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, Austin Stowell, and Dan Stevens, it marks one of the first releases from Neon, a new company formed by Alamo Drafthouse’s Tim League and former Radius-twc boss Tom Quinn.
We said in our review, “Whether the existence of time travel or an alien invasion, writer/director Nacho Vigalondo has proven king at dealing with large-scale concepts affecting small-scale characters. Always »

The first trailer for Colossal, Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo’s typically inventive foray into the kaiju genre, has arrived in all its beer-soaked glory. The film stars Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, playing against type as childhood friends turned mean-spirited drunks whose relationship takes a turn for the nasty after Hathaway’s character gets dumped by her boyfriend and has to move back home. Oh yeah, and she can control the giant monster that appears every night to terrorize the people of Seoul by walking across a playground.
The A.V. Club saw Colossal in its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest, where we said, “At first, Colossal seems like a rather on-the-nose metaphor for the destructive nature of alcoholism, but by the end it develops into a more nuanced statement about jealousy and male entitlement. This is Vigalondo’s most Hollywood film yet, and as long as he ...

You know, if you had asked me if we were living in an age filled to the brim with kaiju (giant monster) movies, I would’ve probably answered with a pretty solid no. With all the content that’s out there, I think it’s safe to say the big ones out there are mostly standard superhero fare. But if I took a little deeper look, and actually looked at what’s come out recently, as well as what’s on the horizon, I may recognize a different narrative.
Between the likes of Transformers (I know, not technically a kaiju film), Pacific Rim, Power Rangers, Godzilla, and Kong: Skull Island, there definitely seems have been a subtle resurgence of the long-running genre. And with it, it almost seems like the perfect time for a parody film to hit theaters. While I couldn’t call the trailer to the upcoming Anne Hathaway film, »

Anne Hathaway’s upcoming film “Colossal” is something different for the Oscar-winning actress. As someone who has taken on a variety of roles, her latest one is of an alcoholic named Gloria who finds out that her movements are controlling a giant monster terrorizing South Korea. Entertainment Weekly has shared the first teaser trailer for the sci-fi, action film, which is just as wacky as it sounds.
Hathaway previously explained that she took on the role of Gloria for her 16-year-old self. “I would have loved this movie and felt so cool knowing it existed,” she said, calling it the “sci-fi companion” to “Rachel Getting Married.”
The movie had its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, »

Beyoncé believes in the movement.
The Lemonade singer took to Facebook on Wednesday to share her support for the Women's March on Washington, a demonstration planned in our nation's capital on Saturday, one day after President-Elect Donald Trump's inauguration, aimed at advocating for the rights of women, minorities, and Lgbtq people in the coming administration.

The “Canadian Oscars” feature innovative nominees in both film and television.
On Tuesday morning, actors Maxim Roy, Amanda Brugel, and Simu Liu announced the nominees for the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television’s 2017 Canadian Screen Awards. The awards honor outstanding works in film, television, and digital media productions. Both the film and television categories include innovative works made by young talent, and it is refreshing to see the unique work being done in the Canadian media industry.
French-Canadian director Xavier Dolan’s film, It’s Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) leads the nominations in the film categories, scoring nine nods including Best Motion Picture. Dolan’s film won the Grand Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and has been submitted as Canada’s entry for the 2017 Academy Awards. Dolan did an incredible job adapting Jean-Luc Lagarce’s play of the same name, which was beautifully brought to life by stars »
