"NON-STOP" - JULIANNE MOORE
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Here's something you may not have known about Julianne Moore: she's scared of the devil -- or as she puts it, "VERY scared of the devil." Moore says really good movies will play on fears like that, which is how her latest movie, "Non-Stop," works. It's about an air marshal who is trying to stay one step ahead of a killer on an airplane. Moore says the film's makers have turned ordinary circumstances and turned it into something Hitchcockian. Moore says "Non-Stop" reminds her of the classic disaster movies like "The Poseidon Adventure" or "Towering Inferno" that she loved as a kid.
Julianne Moore says the director of "Non-Stop" made a film that had what she used to love about watching movies.
