Timeline (2003) In the heart of the beautiful and historically rich Dordogne Valley of France, a team of archeology students and their professor diligently work to uncover the ruins of a 14th-century castle. For Professor Edward Johnston, the project is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Aided by assistant professor Andre Marek, his son Chris and students Kate, Stern and Francois, Johnston has made major strides in unearthing not only La Roque Castle but also a monastery and structures from the surrounding village of Castlegard. But things are about to go haywire... Suspicious of the dig's benefactor, International Technology Corporation (ITC) and the man who runs it, Robert Doniger, Professor Johnston heads to ITC headquarters in New Mexico to get some answers, and while he's away, his students discover a chamber that has been sealed for more than 600 years. Marek and Kate descend into the unstable room, and just before a near disastrous cave-in, they make two startling discoveries -- a bifocal lens, which couldn't have been invented before the chamber was sealed, and even more intriguing, a handwritten plea for help dated April 2, 1357...from Professor Johnston! Determined to solve the mystery, the students head for ITC headquarters, where they are stunned to learn of Doniger's new invention -- a machine that can actually transmit three-dimensional objects through space. Although he meant for the device to revolutionize shipping, Doniger inadvertently opened a wormhole that leads directly to the 14th century, and Professor Johnston, who had insisted on experiencing the discovery himself, is now trapped in a vicious French vs. English feudal war! Can Johnston's loyal students survive one of the most violent battles in world history... and make it back to the 21st century alive?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Gordon: Trust me- we're in 1357 France.
  • Marek: Go! Get the hell out of here! Chris Johnston: No, let's go home! Come on! Marek: [Marek looks at Lady Claire] Marek: I am home, Chris. Marek: [Marek looks again at Lady Claire] Marek: Chris, just go. Say goodbye for me. Chris Johnston: I'm gonna miss you, Marek.
  • Kate Ericson: There's one thing worse than dying here, and that's living here.
  • Lord Oliver: [to Lady Claire] God be with you, Lady.
  • Lord Oliver: [to Andre] Scottish? You've come to kill us all in our beds, eh?
Movie Trivia:
  • The battle of Castlegard is not an actual historical event. However, the crew of the movie visited various European castles from around that period (the late 1300s) to make the castles and towns look as realistic as possible
  • A group of medieval re-enactors were used for soldiers in battle sequences.
  • The film was originally set to open in April 2003, but due to poor test screenings, Sherry Lansing (the head of Paramount Pictures at the time) ordered that the film be re-edited in the process, losing a crucial subplot that is touched on in the final version involving David Thewlis' character. Jerry Goldsmith's score was replaced because he was not able to return to the scoring stage due to health reasons.
  • Frank A. Cappello wrote an uncredited draft of the script and his name appeared on a few of the original teaser posters and trailers along side credited writers George Nolfi and Jeff Maguire.
  • Twice in the movie (first when Lady Claire is reunited with the French knights, and later in the final battle), a French knight's shield has the Québec flag painted on it. These scenes where shot in Québec, along with every 14th century France scenes.
