Anne Hathaway Controls a Giant Monster in First Trailer for Colossal

I love monster movies and tend to get excited any time a new one is on the horizon.  Colossal looks to be taking the genre and twisting it to all new purposes, which look like a lot of fun according to this trailer:

It looks quirky and hilarious, while still bringing in the big destruction you expect from monster movies.  I’m pretty excited to see how this film brings it all together.  What about you guys? 

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 his 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 to arrive in theaters on April 7, 2017
