A Sound of Thunder by Peter Hyams (dir) (Warner Brothers / ) - UPDATE- A Sound of Thunder is rescheduled for release on SEPTEMBER 2, 2005.
Based on a story by Ray Bradbury, in the near-future, a time travel safari company arranges hunting expeditions to the distant past. Although each trip is carefully planned, things can always go wrong?such as when a frightened hunter accidentally steps on a butterfly, setting in motion a cascading series of changes that tear through time and reshape the hunters? present. Change piles upon change, until safari leader Travis Ryer (Edward Burns) must work with time machine inventor Sonia Rand (Catherine McCormack) to undo the harm they?ve caused. If they can?t set things right, the Age of Dinosaurs will never end? and mankind will never have existed. Directed by Peter Hyams. Warner Brothers.

However, she is soon pulled into a darkly fantastic world of masks and mysteries. Trying to return home, she must find the Mirrormask, an artifact of tremendous power... but soon learns that much more hinges on the success of her search than her own homecoming. The life of her mother (and that of a mysterious Queen) also depend on her...
