Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release on Blu-ray Tom Hanks' That Thing You Do! (1996), starring Tom Hanks, Liv Tyler, Charlize Theron, and Tom Everett Scott. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the country on April 2.
Written by, directed by and co-starring Tom Hanks, this high-energy comedy about fame and friendship dances on to Blu-ray™ for the very first time. Hanks plays the big-hearted manager of a 1960s pop-rock group called The Wonders that becomes a shooting-star sensation thanks to a delightfully catchy chart-topper called: "That Thing You Do!"
Tom Hanks Extended Cut and Theatrical Version of the film
may not be the best movie or anything but I've always watched it anytime it was on tv... for the past 15 years. it's been on HD channels for a while, I wondered when they'd finally put it on Blu-ray. nice to see they finally are.
Not that I wouldn't mind seeing a US release of Borat either, but a Tom Hanks catalog title will have a much better following than either of the films you mentioned (I'm sure alot of people may have never even heard of Garden State).
I never dreamed this day would actually come. This movie is my most favorite of all, literally. I love the story and this amazing cast. But now, to see it finally has a blu ray release date makes it that much more special to me. I've been watching my dvd so much, wondering what it's going to look like in HD. Thankfully, it comes out just 2 days before my anniversary.
Hey, wonder if I should get this for my wife? :-) Yeah, I got it that bad. This is a much better gift than what I had originally planned. It's kind of a win-win situation.
Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne wrote some great original songs for this movie. The music is what makes the film a must-see. I'm sad he lost the Oscar to "You Must Love Me" from Evita (but that's some stiff competiton).
Such a nice, light and easy to watch film. Underappreciated. This was on my 10 most wanted list -- I love it when I get to cross one off the list and replace it with another.
