While there’s no giant monster action present in the video, the scene does offer a glimpse at the dramatic and humorous elements of the film.

“Colossal,” which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival and won the Best Picture Prize at the Austin Fantastic Fest, follows a woman (Hathaway) in the midst of a mental breakdown, who realizes her actions dictate the movements of a giant monster wreaking havoc in Korea. Alongside Hathaway and Sudeikis are cast members Dan Stevens (“Legion”), Tim Blake Nelson (“O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) and Austin Stowell (“Whiplash”).

The film is set to be released on April 7.
