Anne Hathaway controls a giant monster in the trailer for Colossal

1 Share

We’ve already seen movies like Godzilla and Pacific Rim where monsters wreak untold havoc on major cities around the world. But what if you were somehow able to control those monsters with your every move. That seems to be the premise of Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal. Here, Anne Hathaway is, like everyone else around her, terrified by the rise of a huge monster causing destruction. That is, until she finds out she can control it.

Colossal debuted last year at Fantastic Fest, and came away with great reviews for Hathaway’s performance and its far-out concept. We’re looking forward to it striking a chord with genre fans when it hits theaters on April 7th.

President Donald Trump will select Republican Ajit Pai to become chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Politico reported today.

"Two industry sources" who are familiar with the decision said an announcement could be made as soon as today, the report said. Pai would become chairman immediately, without needing to be confirmed by the Senate, because he is already a member of the commission. New commissioners must be approved by the Senate, but the president can select the chair from among the commissioners without any additional approvals.

Pai was widely expected to be appointed chairman on at least an interim basis, but Politico says Trump is appointing him as a long-term chair. That would mean Pai could lead the commission throughout Trump's four-year term in the White House.
