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 has 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.

Easter Eggs
On Paramount Home Entertainment’s release of 'Timeline' the studio has hidden an exciting little feature that is very easy to overlook, yet adds greatly to the overall release. Here is how you can activate it.
On the DVD’s Main Menu use the directional keys of your remote control to highlight the icon in the center of the screen, which looks a bit like a Celtic cross. Now press the 'Enter' key and you will see how the menus of the DVD change from their 1357 theme to a present-time 2003 theme. Now, you can do the same on that new menu layout by selecting the dome in the lower center of the screen. It will then take you back to the 1357 menu style.
