"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.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Only four slots are left on this season of "The Voice." Each of the coaches has just a single opening to fill on their teams as the blind auditions continue tonight. Last night, Team Adam picked up Josh Kaufman, a soulful college prep tutor from Indianapolis. He had three of the coaches turning their chairs. But Adam Levine didn't stand a chance with the country duo Alaska and Madi. They're from Blake Shelton's home state of Oklahoma. They also won the same state singing competition that started Shelton on his career. Shelton says they were just meant to be together.
