Julianne Moore and Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary from 'Downton Abbey') co-star

The first trailer for aeroplane thriller Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson has been released. Watch it below.

Neeson stars as a US federal air marshal taking what he believes will be a routine international flight from New York to London. Once the plane is airborne, he begins to receive a series of threatening text messages warning that a passenger will be killed every 20 minutes unless, and until, $150 million is transferred into a secret bank account.

Non-Stop is Neeson’s second collaboration with Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra following their hit 2011 thriller Taken. Collet-Sera directed from a script by rookie screenwriting duo Christopher Roach and John W. Richardson.

Meanwhile, the film’s supporting cast includes Julianne Moore, Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery and Corey Stoll. Non-Stop opens in cinemas in the UK and US on February 28 next year (2014). In the meantime, Neeson will be seen popping up for a cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which is set for release on December 20.
