Where was this suppose to be?
The first thing I noticed there was no mention of what ocean there were on and where were they were from and where were they going to. However I think you can make some deductions. You saw a full or nearly full moon in the sky when the movie opened before anyone saw the wave and just before the new year started. This full moon didn't seem very high in the sky and was rather low which would make it a summer full moon in the southern hemisphere. Also the water seemed rather warm which would indicate tropical or summertime. There were people swimming in the pool when the wave hit so it seems it was a rather warm night in the summer.
In the near future the closest full moon you will get to New Years Day will be January 3, 2007. That full moon will have an unusually high northern declination with the greatest northern declination on January 2of 28 and a half degrees north. The moon will have the greatest range of declination in 2005, 2006, and 2007. This is because of the way the nodes are aligned which give the unusually wide range of declination. The moon will be highest in the sky about two hour before the new year begins and from 32 degrees south will only climb 30 degrees above the horizon. The weather should be quite warm there. By the time the wave arrives which is after midnight the moon is already getting lower which would be correct for the early hours of January 1, 2007. It would set about two hours before sunrise.
Spoiler Alert When they jump into the water and onto the red life raft that is just there the moon is out of sky when they fire the flare gun. That would be correct for January 1, 2007, if that is the day were chose by the position of the moon. Two helicopters arrive and shine the spotlight on them and the movie ends before we seem the getting on the helicopter.
A Sound of Thunder (2005)
I saw this movie today and the green screen effects don't actually look green. However when you saw the people close up walking down the street you could tell it was the green screen scenery going by. I have also seen this effect when they shoot in cars but not always. In fact once in Seattle I saw a movie being shot with a car scene. What they did was put the car on a trailer and shoot from the truck that was pulling the trailer with the car. That way everything looked natural such as the reflections going by.
A lot of the scenes of 2055 Chicago looked OK. Then this same Chicago got invaded by more and more plants and then animals. I guess you would have to make a set for that and then add more plants and animals as each time wave comes by.
Those pre-historic scenes looked much better with all those plants but you could tell those animals as well as the animals that came in time waves to Chicago looked like they were made of rubber.
When the movie started you saw WB and then Franchise Pictures presents. No mention was make of the Franchise going under then or during the closing credits.
When the movie was over I watched all the credits role by to see if there were any improvements make by WB when they took over the movie but none were mentioned. Most of it was shot in the Czech Republic and many of the people had names from that region you could tell. No mention of the floods was given in 2002. The movie said copyright 2004 and Franchise was in the closing credits but not WB.
Spoiler ending ahead.
In the end as the time wave that changes humans they are able to finally make that trip back in the nick of time to meet the expedition just before the shoot and stop them from stepping on the butterfly. They did finally find the butterfly on the shoe before that final trip back. However they didn't have to actually replace the dead butterfly because when they warned them they were able to save the butterfly which you saw flying off. The crushed butterfly problem was caused by the gun not working correctly. It is the leader that is to say when the guns are ready to fire and he is the one who activates the guns for the other members. He couldn't get the guns to activate properly and as the Rex tries to attack the hunters one person fall off the special tract. You can see a mud footprint on the tract as they return so that is where the guy fell. When they come back from the trip to correct things they do succeed and everything is back to normal. There is no altered spelling or a different person winning the election like the short story. 2055 is not an election year but 2052 in the short story is.
