It’s going to be a ‘Colossal’ly fun weekend
What happens when a lifestyle problem turns into actual monster? This month, Star Movies Select HD presents a thought-provoking question about human nature in a unique style. A dark-comedy film starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens, ‘Colossal’ will air for the first time on Indian television, on Saturday, 25th August at 1PM and 9PM only on Star Movies Select HD. The film strengthens Star Movies Select HD’s premium movie proposition of ‘365 days. 365 stories.’.
Colossal revolves around the life of Gloria (Anne Hathaway), and a mysterious monster that creates havoc in a seemingly quiet city. Eventually, Gloria comes to realize that she may have a connection to the monster’s actions. Colossal delves into human behaviour and tries to address the chaos that stirs up when one’s inner demons unleash themselves upon unsuspecting individuals. The film tries to explain how the monsters within us may cause harm to not just our loved ones, but also the ones who we may not even know.
Written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Colossal uses Kaiju - a Japanese film genre, and blends it beautifully with dark humour. The combination impeccably portrays a facet of human nature that is not often spoken about. The result is an entertaining film, one that the Washington Post can’t stop raving about when they say “In this observant, entertaining, wildly imaginative movie, just about everything has more than one meaning.”
Watch the havoc run amok in ‘Colossal’ premiering on Saturday 25th August at 1PM and 9PM only on Star Movies Select HD
