A sound of Thunder

I decided to revisit this movie to give more detail to it than I gave the first time around.

Starring:
Edward Burns Ben Kingsley
Catherine McCormack Corey Johnson
Jemima Rooper August Zirner

Director: Peter Hyams
Producer: Phil Anschutz
Howard Baldwin
Karen Elise Baldwin
Screenwriter: Ray Bradbury
Thomas Dean Donnelly


Action/Adventure, Science Fiction/Fantasy and Thriller
Set in a near future where time travel is possible, this is the story of a travel agency, Time Safari Inc. (owned and managed by Kingsley's character), that arranges hunting trips for wealthy customers back in time to hunt dinosaurs. Each trip is carefully planned, with a scout identifying dinosaurs about to die, and then sending the clients back just seconds before, so the course of time is not altered by the kill. However, in this case, a nervous hunter steps off the trail, and steps on a butterfly. The historical repercussions of the death of a single butterfly, compounded by millions of years of effects, leaves the hunters to return to a future that is not quite the one they came from... Now, Travis Ryer (Burns), the lead dinosaur hunter, must team up with Sonia Rand (McCormack), the inventor of the time machine technology to stop the "time waves" that are rippling up from this event, threatening to erase humanity from existance.

I like everthing about this movie , including the fact it is based on a Ray Bradbury short story.

Release Date for this movie is March 11, 2005

...if you "liked everything about this movie..."Dave"... you haven't seen too many movies. You're either a:
1)Promoter, pretending not to be a promoter; or,
2)a kid, age 12; or,
3)a naive, priviledged, emotionally challenged "adult", so...
GIVE US ALL A BREAK !!...
