Check out some of Julianne Moore's Q&A with OTRC.com below and watch the full interview above.
Q: The film is called "Non-Stop" and everyone is saying that's kind of how the script was, you picked it up and it was non-stop.
"It's really quick moving, it's very entertaining and it's incredibly surprising. It's nice, I think, in this day and age that something stays ahead of you. I think audiences are pretty savvy and they're able to figure things out and this is a challenge that way."
Q: It's essentially one set at 40,000 feet. Is that more challenging or less challenging to be in a confined space like that?
"We weren't really at 40,000 feet. We were really on the ground," Moore joked. She later added, "Remember, once again, if you're on an actual plane and you're stuck on a tarmac for hours, obviously it's very claustrophobic, but remember, we're on a set. So, you sit and you do your scenes and then you walk down the hall and you get a cup of coffee. So it's actually like being on any other set."
Q: Having done this film now, when you get on the plane as a passenger, are you a little bit more aware based on sort of the circumstances on what this film is about?
"I do always look for an air marshal. I have to say, that, I wasn't aware of and now that I know that there's always -- at least one air marshal, sometimes two, I kinda look around to see who I can spot."
"Non-Stop" hits theaters on Friday, Feb. 28.
