There is a lot going on in Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis’ new movie — which is why, over two years after filming Colossal, the actors are still having a tricky time nailing down exactly what it’s about. Hathaway plays Gloria, a hard-partying writer who moves back to her hometown after losing her job and boyfriend (Dan Stevens). She spends her time getting sloshed at childhood friend Oscar’s (Sudeikis) bar. And then shit gets weird when Gloria realizes she has something to do with the gigantic Kaiju monster she sees on the news attacking Seoul, South Korea. Really weird.
With its bizarre premise and unpredictable screenplay (from Spanish writer-director Nacho Vigilando), Colossal is a thrillingly original ride. It’s also a wonky vehicle for discussions about everything from toxic masculinity and sexism to alcoholism and self-destructive demons: a philosophical stoner’s dream.
While the movie itself is, in one obvious way, completely absurd, it never spins out into the stratosphere of ridiculousness, thanks to the thoroughly believable performances from Hathaway and Sudeikis. They are by turns charming and repulsive, brave and vulnerable. So we sat down with the pair to talk about the gospel of Kristen Stewart, what it actually means for a film to be “feminist,” and the unintentionally brilliant ways their new movie reflects what’s going on in the world right now.
Anne Hathaway continued her promo tour for ‘Colossal,’ attending the film’s premiere in LA on Tuesday (April 4). As with the New York premiere, she donned an all-black ensemble in a Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2014 cropped jumpsuit. Check pictures added in our gallery.
Last night Anne attended the Colossal premiere in New York City. She was looking stunning in a colossal (HA!) Armani dress.
The sci-fi comedy is about the down on her luck Gloria, who moves back to her hometown after losing her job and splitting from her boyfriend in NYC. Upon her return to small town living, she notices a strange connection between herself and a larger-than-life monster terrorizing Seoul, Korea.
The quirky sci-fi is also unique as the first release from crowd-funded, fan-owned studio Legion M.
Colossal arrives in theaters April 7.
Anne Hathaway is a down-on-her-luck woman who discovers she can manifest a Godzilla type monster halfway around the world, and wreak all kinds of havoc. Yeah, that’s the promise of Colossal, which is screening in Sundance and had its first trailer released today.
Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene girl who is thrust into crisis when her boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), grows sick of her antics and kicks her out of their apartment. With no other options, she moves back to her hometown and quickly regresses, drinking every night until last call and accepting a job at a bar owned by her childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). One day she wakes up and blurrily finds out that Seoul was terrorized by a giant creature the night before. Eventually, Gloria begins to suspect her own drunken actions are bizarrely connected to the monster rampaging in South Korea.
Colossal will open on theaters next April 7th.
Variety is reporting that a mysterious Chinese buyer has picked up North American distribution rights to “Colossal,” an offbeat monster movie starring Anne Hathaway that opened at the festival over the weekend. No word yet on the identity of the company that put up the money, but it will be revealed in coming weeks when the backers announce an investment in a U.S. distributor. It will get a theatrical release in 2017.
“Colossal” was one of the festival’s hotter targets because it stars Anne Hathaway in a showy role as an alcoholic New Yorker and earned solid notices when it debuted. The film drew interest from other buyers, including indie label A24.
In the movie, written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo (“Open Windows”), Hathaway plays a character who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, discovers that she can control a creature in Seoul.
Anne was joined by co-stars Jason Sudeikis, Austin Stowell, Tim Blake Nelson and director Nacho Vigalondo yesterday at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of her new film Colossal. Later they attended an after party in celebration.
During the premiere Anne wore a Rodarte dress and Francesco Russo saldals, and at the after party she was rocking in Givenchy. Check pictures in our gallery:
