adaptation of a classic story.>

"Warner has extremely low expectations for "Thunder" given the  small
number of theaters on which it is bowing. Studio is obliged to  give
the pic a release as part of a deal with the bankrupt  Franchise
Pictures, which made it. With little promotion, title will  likely
appeal just to sci-fi fans familiar with the Ray Bradbury  time-travel
story on which it is based."
