Thunderstruck Premieres in OKC
Harkins Theater in Bricktown rolled out the red carpet for a screening of the new movie "Thunderstruck." Stars and film makers were also welcomed to the city.
"I feel like this is the best place to be for this kind of movie because, seeing [the fans] are at games, how everybody shows up, I mean there's already tons of people here all wearing jerseys. Its the best place to have this premiere," said star of the film, Taylor Gray.
In the movie a young basketball fan, played by Gray, magically switches talents with his hero Kevin Durant, of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
"Remember it's just a movie," said the film's producer Mike Karz, "Kevin did not lose his powers in real life."
Karz and director, John Whitesell, were impressed with Durant's skill on the set. Extra scenes were written for Durant, after the crew discovered how good his acting and presence in the film was, Karz said.
"I wouldn't say I was good. But I tried my hardest. That's all I could do," Durant said. "I'm glad that I could walk into a movie theater and see my poster up there and star in a movie. I'm just excited that I got this opportunity."
"Thunderstruck" hits theaters August 24th.
"[Anybody] who has kids who love basketball, this is a movie taylor made for them, and they would love to see it," Whitesell said.

Okla. grand jury returns new charges on ex-judge
May 23, 2013 23:32 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury has returned new indictments against a former Lincoln County judge who already faces embezzlement and cattle theft charges.
The grand jury handed up the indictments Thursday against 47-year-old Craig S. Key of Chandler.
Key turned himself in last month to Lincoln County authorities who set bond at $10,000.
One indictment accuses Key of harboring a fugitive by allegedly encouraging a client facing criminal charges in Lincoln and Jefferson counties to flee the state to avoid prosecution.
Another charges Key with five counts of delivery of a forged note and accuses him of forging the name of a woman whose signature was required on escrow account checks that Key was also required to sign.
Key's attorney, Cheryl Ramsey of Stillwater, says the additional indictments are no surprise.
