They Had To Travel Into The Past To Save The Future.
Popular action star Paul Walker (The Fast And The Furious) leads an ensemble cast as a group of young archaeologists who confront the intrigue-and perils- of time travel in Timeline, "...an unforgettable thrill ride..." directed by Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon) and based on the best selling novel by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park). While excavating in the Dordogne Valley of France, a scientific research team's new invention, a time-travel machine, has inadvertently sent archaeology professor Edward Johnston (Billy Connolly, The Last Samurai) back to 14th century France...and ha landed him in the middle of the raging Hundred Years War between the French and English. Johnston's only chance for rescue lies in the hands of his son Chris (Walker), his assistant professor Andre Marek (Gerard Butler, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life), and several of his students. The intrepid time travelers must make the same treacherous journey and, with the deadline of only eight hours now ticking away, must navigate through the hostile, war-torn territory and retrieve the professor before he's lost to history forever.
