"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 »

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 »

John F. Kennedy’s assassination: It’s a part of American history that launched over 50 years of debate and speculation. The questions of what really happened at Dealey Plaza and who this man Lee Harvey Oswald was have been the subjects of countless books. Stephen King added his own book to that collection — a fictional take on this history, though one with a lot of historical research involved. The Master of Horror blended together elements of political intrigue, suspense, mystery, and romance with his 2011 book 11/22/63, about a schoolteacher who travels back in time to prevent JFK’s assassination. The eight-part series based on the book and produced by J.J. Abrams debuts today on Hulu. New episodes will be released weekly on Mondays on the streaming service. During the three years (five in the book) that James Franco’s time-traveling Jake Epping spends in the past, leading up to the fateful »

The latest adaptation of one of bestselling author Stephen King’s novels, Hulu mini-series “11.22.63,” launched with a premiere at L.A.’s Bruin Theater on Thursday. Executive producer J.J. Abrams told Variety how an article that star James Franco wrote about the book led to the actor’s casting.
“When I read this piece that Franco had written, it was so passionate about this character, about this world, about this story,” Abrams said. “He was also, in the piece, giving me s–t for being involved in too many projects, so I thought at the very least I should reach out and see if he wanted to be involved in this one with me.”
Franco revealed that King’s time-travel novel was one of the first books that he picked up after having to read 150 for his oral exams as a student in the Yale English department. The book caught his eye, »

Stephen King's always been open about his improvisational writing style, and the way he lets his stories tell him where they need to go. Even if he never said a word about his process, though, longtime King readers could probably tell, not just because his endings tend to feel rougher than his beginnings, but because sometimes his stories will take unusual detours as King becomes fascinated by a plot device he obviously didn't expect to find so interesting when he started. Case in point: 11/22/63, his 2011 thriller about Jake Epping, a Maine schoolteacher who goes back in time to try to prevent the JFK assassination. Because the time travel method (a portal in the back of his favorite local diner) deposits him in the past years ahead of schedule, Jake has to fill his days when he's not shadowing Lee Harvey Oswald to confirm that he was acting alone on that fateful day. »
