A Sound of Thunder

A Sound of Thunder is a 2005 English-language science fiction thriller film directed by Peter Hyams and stars Edward Burns, Catherine McCormack and Ben Kingsley. An international co-production between the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and the Czech Republic, the film was planned originally for a 2003 release. However, flooding in Prague and other financial difficulties—including the bankruptcy of the original production company during post-production—resulted in a delayed release. The film is based on the short story of the same name by Ray Bradbury. It is about "time tourists" who accidentally interfere too much with the past, completely altering the present.
