Artwork & Special Features Revealed for Transmission Films’ COLOSSAL Blu-ray!
On August 30th, Transmission Films will release visionary filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo’s genre-defying COLOSSAL on Blu-ray & DVD.
COLOSSAL follows Gloria (Anne Hathaway), 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 realisation 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.
Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer/director Nacho Vigalondo unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. Featuring an empowering central performance by Anne Hathaway — playing a train-wreck fumbling toward redemption as she did in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED — COLOSSAL is that rare beast, the story of a woman battling for her survival and taking control of her own life in the shadow of two very different monsters on either side of the world.
Thankfully Transmission Films have opted to stick with the original theatrical key art rather than photoshopped abomination that Universal Pictures went with for their U.S. home entertainment releases.

While the U.S. home entertainment release contains a singular deleted scene that High-Def Digest claim “isn’t even that amazing“, Transmission Films’ local release (both Blu-ray & DVD) contains a Behind the Scenes featurette that runs at just over twenty minutes with on-set interviews from Nacho Vigalondo, Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis and more. Transmission were kind enough to provide a screener and we can confirm it’s a worthy inclusion for fans of the film!
COLOSSAL is available on Blu-ray & DVD at all good Australian retailers from Wednesday August 30th.
