It's the second movie arriving this year that employs a monster as a metaphor for the protagonist's inner turmoil, but while A Monster Calls feels like it portrays the emotional weight of its subject, this movie — , starring Oscar winner Anne Hathaway — comes off as more than little confused. But maybe that's the point.

The trailer introduces us to 's character, a directionless alcoholic who finds herself in a bit of a tizz on discovering that her inner anxiety has manifested into a Colossal kaiju based in Seoul, South Korea, and it mimics her every move. Yes, really. Check out the trailer below:

The official synopsis, which comes from the mind of director Nacho Vigalondo (Extraterrestrial, Open Windows), is as follows:

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) drinks too hard and parties too much. Her boyfriend has enough of it and throws her out. Gloria returns to her hometown, dreaming of making a new start, but instead revives her childhood friendship with Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), who runs a bar. After drinking a night away with Oscar and his friends, he wakes up to discover a gigantic monster rampaging through Seoul and realizes that somehow the monster is connected to her.

So, in a nutshell, what we have here is an Academy Award winning actress starring in a movie that is essentially Godzilla meets Sweet Home Alabama and a part of me, I'm not sure it's a part of me I like, can get down with that.

Colossal is stomping in theaters nationwide now.

Will you be going to see Anne Hathaway playing a giant, drunk, city stomping monster?
