The premise of Colossal is so wacky and refreshing that every minute of it surprises you. A woman moves back to her hometown after breaking up with her boyfriend, and finds that she is somehow psychically linked to a giant monster wreaking havoc in Seoul. How it would follow up on such a unique premise? I admit I wondered that going into the film, but it delivered. And it worked so wonderfully because I had virtually no knowledge of the film going in — the marketing up until then had been ingeniously discrete and mysterious.
That may change for those who haven’t seen Colossal yet, with the newest trailer released for the Anne Hathaway film. Don’t read further if you don’t want spoilers.

There are new signs of life for Mark Millar‘s Supercrooks and American Jesus. Over five years ago, Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo became attached to Supercrooks, and he later went on to direct a teaser trailer for the comic book, but we’ve heard little about the film adaptation since then. And even longer ago, Matthew Vaughn was attached to produce American Jesus, as a followup to his successful collaboration with Millar on Kick-Ass. A summer 2009 start date was speculated, but never came to fruition.
Today, there is finally some news for both projects. Waypoint Entertainment has purchased the rights to the two comic book titles. Vigalondo and Vaughn’s names aren’t mentioned in the official press release, so perhaps they’re no longer involved in either project.
