NEON has revealed the official trailer for director Nacho Vigalondo‘s upcoming film Colossal, starring Anne Hathaway, which you can check out in the player below.

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.

She’s joined in the film by Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We’re the Millers), Dan Stevens (LegionThe Guest, Downton Abbey), Austin Stowell (Whiplash, Bridge of Spies), and Tim Blake Nelson (Fantastic Four, O Brother, Where Art Thou?).

Colossal, which has been likened in tone to “Godzilla meets Lost in Translation,” is also scripted by Vigalondo, the filmmaker responsible for genre fare like the acclaimed sci-fi thriller Timecrimes and the stylish Open Windows. It will debut in theaters on April 7.
