Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival showed Nacho Vigalondo’s quirky first feature film Timecrimes (Cronocrimenes) way back in 2008, so it’s highly appropriate that the festival show Colossal.
Though most of Colossal is set in the U.S. (actually, British Columbia, for the small town parts) there is also a giant monster attacking Seoul, South Korea. So it REALLY fits in the Fantasia lineup.
In fact, it’s so appropriate, that when I first heard about Colossal, I thought that it might have its premiere at Fantasia. But, no, it was released months ago.
Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, and Dan Stevens are among the stars.
It will be shown on a terrace behind the Hall Building, at 1445 de Maisonneuve West. Enter by Mackay St.
Colossal, 9 pm, Wednesday, July, 26, 2017.
