That Thing You Do! is coming to Blu-Ray

March 10, 2013

That's right, That Thing You Do! will be released on Blu-Ray on April 2, 2013! The movie was written by, directed by and co-starring Tom Hanks. It was the first time he directed a motion picture. That Thing You Do! is a comedy about fame and friendship in which Tom 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's production company, Playtone, was named after the fictional record company used in the film.
