Anne Hathaway’s next project is unlike any other she’s done. Directed by Nacho Vigalondo, the sci-fi thriller “Colossal” will be making its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and now we have its first look.
The Oscar-winner stars as Gloria, a woman who discovers that severe catastrophic events are somehow connected to the mental breakdown from which she’s suffering. The film also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell and Tim Blake Nelson.
In the first images released on TIFF’s website, Hathaway is seen with a bruised eye, shaggy long brown hair and looking up at some unknown object. In the second photo she is seen wearing black jeans, a white top with an olive-colored jacket, but this time smiling.
“Colossal” will be screened in the Vanguard section of the festival, which will run from September 8-18. Here’s the synopsis for the film: Gloria is an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and being 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 seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
