John Travolta Lives Life On The Line In New Trailer For High-Wire Thriller

24 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 AerosmithSharon Stone, »
