Ahead of its release next month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming action thriller Life on the Line which stars John Travolta, Kate Bosworth, Devon Sawa, Julie Benz, Gil Bellows, Ryan Robbins, and Sharon Stone; take a look below…
Life On The Line is a riveting action thriller and family drama centered on Beau (John Travolta), his beloved niece Bailey (Kate Bosworth) and the hardworking men who risk their lives to work “on the line” and keep the electric grid running. These unsung heroes brave raging storms and dangerously dizzying heights in their dedication to keeping the populace safe. Toiling hundreds of feet in the air on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, tragedy is often inches away. Haunted by the electrocution death of his brother, Beau is devoted to Bailey and determined to see her go off to college and away from the life of linemen. »

Sporting fine facial hair and an admirable helmet, John Travolta has a new film incoming, in the shape of Life On The Line. This one’s a mix of thriller and drama, centred on the lives of power line workers. In this case, power line workers on the day of a heavy storm. That’s going to go well, right?
Travolta stars in this one with Kate Bosworth, Sharon Stone and Devon Sawa, and we’ve got a trailer and a synopsis for the movie. We don’t have a UK release date (this video says 1st September, but that’s in America, in limited release), but hey, you can’t have everything, right?
Let’s do them in turn, then. Here’s the trailer…
And here’s the synopsis… »
"Any little distraction will kill you." Voltage Pictures has debuted another new trailer for the movie Life on the Line, an action-thriller about the risky lives of power line workers. The film stars John Travolta and Devon Sawa as two line workers who end up working during a massive storm that nearly destroys their lives. The cast includes Kate Bosworth, Sharon Stone, Gil Bellows, Julie Benz and Ryan Robbins. We featured a trailer for this earlier in the year, as it looks unlike anything else being released nowadays. It seems obliviously cheesy, but also almost like a throwback to 90's action movies. Tavolta looks pretty wild, though I'm not sure if this will be any good. The release date listed in the trailer is for Singapore, not the Us. Here's the newest trailer (+ a poster) for David Hackl's Life on the Line, direct from YouTube: Life on the Line »

Dear readers, we'd like to discuss sexual awakenings for a minute. We've all had them; that moment when you're watching Casper or Now and Then or Little Giants when suddenly you notice Devon Sawa or Devon Sawa or...Devon Sawa. You start to feel a little differently about movie characters, and then nothing is the same. (And, more importantly, you never look at Devon Sawa the same way again). You realize you are a charged being and that there is a whole, beautiful world out there just waiting for you to cut out Tiger Beat posters of it and practice French-kissing on your wall. But that phenomenon can also happen in regards to specific people long after you've »
Devon Sawa has probably held a special place in your heart since the '90s. In addition to his role in Casper and the iconic line of "Can I keep you?," Devon turned into a full-on heartthrob with other roles in hits like Now and Then and Little Giants. The actor has definitely grown up since those days, but that doesn't mean he's gotten any less adorable. Devon has been married to his wife, Dawni Sahanovitch, since 2010, and the couple have two kids together, 2-year-old son Hudson and daughter Scarlett, who was born in March 2016. While their daughter only recently joined their brood, Devon and Dawni have documented so many cute family moments with their little boy. While we wait for even more snaps of the new family of four, keep reading to see their best moments so far! »

Voltage Pictures has premiered a new trailer for high-wire thriller Life on the Line, starring John Travolta as a blue-collar worker risking life and limb to restore downed power lines across the country.
Described as one the most dangerous occupations out there, the subject matter wouldn’t look out of place in a straight-to-tv documentary, though director David Hackl has moulded a story around the employment regardless. It’s a dated one, too, with Travolta on board to play Beau, a grizzled veteran who reluctantly takes newcomer Devon Sawa under his wing.
In his time dealing with power outages and unforgiving storms, Beau has witnessed his fair share of tragedies. Plus, the fact that he acts as a surrogate father to Kate Bosworth’s character, a potential love interest to Sawa’s maverick, evokes a romantic subplot not dissimilar to Michael Bay’s Armageddon – only with decidedly less Aerosmith.

"I do have a job, momma, I told you I'm a line man now." Voltage Pictures has released a new trailer for the film called Life on the Line, about the dangerous and challenging lives of power line workers. Yeah, seriously. The film stars John Travolta and Devon Sawa as two line workers who end up working during a massive storm that nearly destroys their lives. The cast includes Kate Bosworth, Sharon Stone, Gil Bellows, Julie Benz and Ryan Robbins. This almost looks like one of those action movies from the 90s that we don't see anymore, all about hard working people who just want to keep everyone safe and do their jobs. Not sure if this will find any audience at all, but give it a watch anyway. "We gotta get the power on!" Here's the first official trailer for David Hackl's Life on the Line, direct from »
