From the exciting new distribution company, Neon, Nacho Vigalondo’s widely praised monster movie Colossal (review) will open in theaters on April 7, 2017.
Our very own Kalyn Corrigan reviewed Colossal, calling it “a clever and fascinating mega monster movie that’s just as deeply comedic and entertaining as it is casually wise and perceptive.”
The pseudo-monster movie, from the director of Extraterrestrial, V/H/S Viral, and Timecrimes, stars Anne Hathaway as a hard-partying New Yorker who uses her mind to battle a giant lizard half a world away in Seoul. Dan Stevens (The Guest) and Jason Sudeikis co-star.
Radius co-founder Tom Quinn and Alamo Drafthouse owner Tim League will distribute the film that made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Quinn, who was head of acquisition for Magnolia Pictures, was also the Radius executive who acquired and helped champion the horror classic It Follows. League is not only the owner of Alamo Drafthouse, but is also behind all sorts of important things in our pop culture, including the incredible Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. This is an exciting pairing that will be fruitful for us genre fans.
