Hello and welcome to Film 2014. We live if you would like to get in
touch. Coming up... Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson take
a flight into the unknown in Non-Stop. He is hijacking this
plane, I am 27. Wes Anderson talks about his career.
I do something so different with each film.
And we look ahead to Sunday's Oscars.
We take a look at Godzilla, the new film from Gareth Edwards. We are
joined right Danny and Camilla Long. First up, fast and your seat belt
for Non-Stop. Liam Neeson plays an air marshal trying to keep control
of a transatlantic flight. I hate flying. The crowds, the delays. I
always kind of liked it. Six hours, nobody can get to you. Welcome
aboard our service, New York to London. Do you fly much? All the
time, actually. It is a brave film in lots of ways.
97% of it is filmed on board an aeroplane. Somebody on this flight
is threatening to kill somebody every 20 minutes unless $150 million
is transferred to this a number. The written element that is like an
old-fashioned whodunnit? It must be him, maybe it is her. We are midway
across the Atlantic, how do you kill summary in a crowded plane and get
away with it? -- kill somebody. You introduce this entire cast at
the beginning. It is old-fashioned, it reminds me of films in the 70s
when you had a large cast in one situation and you would wait to see
who would survive. In the cockpit, now. You are going to come in, sit
down and shut up. I am a big fan of disaster movies, where all the
characters have to come together at the end to face an impossible
situation. We shot the film over two months. Every day we were with the
same extras who were playing the passengers, and the same set, it was
a real challenge for the film-makers and the director of photography, it
didn't just have one set, you have to make it interesting for an
audience will stop --. I love the idea of putting the audience in the
middle of the action. The audience should feel like a passenger on the
plane. This is a setup, something else is going on. That's what these
films are about, thrills and suspense and the unexpected, not
knowing at all what will happen, not being able to anticipate it and
being surprised and genuinely entertaining. A squad has you in
their sights. We or any out of time, do you hear me? -- we are running
out of time. I can't help but smile, I don't know
if that was the aim. You would assume a bad guy on a plane would do
a runner when you see Liam Neeson. He looks disturbed from the word
