Colossal (2017)

Just caught this today, and enjoyed it. Anne Hathaway plays chronically drunk chick Gloria, who gets kicked out by her boyfriend and moves back into her childhood home in Upstate NY, then to reunite with childhood acquaintance Oscar (played by Jason Sudeikis). While there, she discovers she has an avatar in the form of a 100-foot monster, which, at 8:05am EST each morning, appears on a riverfront in Seoul, South Korea and wreaks (unintentional) havoc.

This was marketed as a fairly light-hearted comedy, but it actually takes a notably dark turn in the 2nd half, which is part of the reason I enjoyed it.
