This April Do ‘That Thing You Do’ On Blu

Well it’s about time!  As much as I like getting to see big blockbusters on Blu-ray for their awesome sound and video quality, and as much as I like to see old classics get their restored treatment on Blu-ray, there are still a good number of more modern films that have yet to make their way to Blu-ray, which I have been really excited to finally own in hi-def.  That Thing You Do is one of those films.  This delightful 90s comedy was the first theatrical film to be directed by Tom Hanks and it is a lot of fun.  It is the fictional story of a pop band from the 60s that blew up big with their hit song, “That Thing You Do,” and the film follows their journey into stardom.  On April 2nd, everyone will finally have the chance to own the film on Blu-ray, which also features the 40-minute longer extended cut of the film, along with many more extras.  Read on further to find out more about this upcoming release.

That Thing You Do!

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!”
