NEON, the new distribution label founded by Tom Quinn and Tim League will partner with Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned media company, on the company’s debut release, Nacho Vigalondo’s COLOSSAL. The film, starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, debuted to strong reviews at Toronto International Film Festival in 2016, and subsequently became the first film to secure invites from Toronto International Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Sundance Film Festival 2017 and SXSW 2017.
COLOSSAL features Anne Hathaway as Gloria, an out-of-work party 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 this 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. Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell and Tim Blake Nelson also star.
“Legion M’s mission is to unite passionate fans together to bring refreshing new ideas to the screen” said Paul Scanlan, Cofounder of Legion M. “We are thrilled to be partnering with NEON, a company who embodies this same refrain, to introduce this wildly imaginative film as a first of many projects to come.”
COLOSSAL was written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo and produced by Route One Entertainment, Voltage Pictures and Nahikari Ipiña. NEON will release COLOSSAL in theaters on April 7, 2017.
