‘Non-Stop’ Trailer: Liam Neeson Flies the Unfriendly Skies

Liam Neeson has carved out a comfy little niche for himself doing a million Taken-style action movies, one after another. His streak continues with Non-Stop, which combines an old standard – Neeson growling threats into a cell phone – with an airplane-fresh twist. Neeson plays an air marshal doing his regular duty on a regular flight. But when he receives this text message: “give me $150 million or I kill a passenger every 20 minutes,” Neeson is forced to put his intimidation-via-cell-phone skills to the test in hunting down the killer and rescuing his fellow air travelers.

Despite its shameless ambitions to be Die Hard on a plane, Non-Stop promises at least two fun twists. First is that Neeson’s cell phone usage is limited to text messaging, meaning that his big Taken-style outburst will probably be a strongly worded text punctuated with the scowliest emoticons known to man. And second is how Non-Stop teases its killer’s mysterious methods. How exactly does one kill people in secret on a crowded plane? Time-lapse poison capsules? Nanotechnology? Stabbing someone really fast while everyone’s backs are turned? We won’t know until Neeson cracks the case, but judging from this trailer, it looks like Julianne Moore‘s character might be involved. She’s got shifty eyes – never a good sign.
