As I’ve often said, this “post-New Year/pre-Memorial Day” season is a dumping ground for films. But if you’re a genre lover like me, it’s Second Christmas. Case in point; the upcoming Non-Stop. The studio has released images and the look verrrrry cool.
Here’s the sitch:
Global action star Liam Neeson stars in Non-Stop, a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air. During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the airline to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. The film reunites Neeson with Unknowndirector Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, and co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore. http://wwww.nonstopthefilm.com
What this synopsis failed to mention is that my new favorite actress, Lupita Nyong’o, is also in the film, looking sharp. As is Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery, out of period costume and into a stewardess uniform. I’m betting these two Stews will be doing more than the usual coffee run.
Non-Stop opens on February 28th, 2014.
