Colossal is a 2016 Spanish-Canadian giant monster movie written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo and starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell, and Tim Blake Nelson. Production began in Vancouver in October 2015.[1] It premiered on September 9th, 2016, at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will receive a theatrical release on April 7th, 2017.[2]

Description

Official synopsis:

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), and is forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. 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), and resumes her drinking lifestyle.

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. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover that her every move at a local playground is being mimicked on a catastrophic scale by the rampaging beast. When Gloria's friends get wind of the bizarre phenomenon, a second, more destructive creature emerges, prompting an epic showdown between the two monsters.

Reception

Colossal currently has a 77% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 31 reviews.[3] The site's Critical Consensus reads, "Colossal's singular strangeness can be disorienting, but viewers who hang on may find that its genre-defying execution -- and Anne Hathaway's performance -- is well worth the ride."

Lawsuit

Voltage Pictures was sued by Toho over the film for allegedly infringing on Toho's ownership of Godzilla. When pitching the film, Voltage frequently referred to Godzilla and even described Colossal as a Godzilla film in interviews. In addition, Voltage included images of Godzilla from Legendary Pictures' 2014 film in concept artwork and posters for the film.[4] The legal dispute was eventually settled, with Voltage removing any similarity to Godzilla from the film.

Wow. I can see why they sued. That is clearly Godzilla in the picture. I can't believe they were stupid enough to think this was okay.
