The Shadow League was on hand for Monday night’s world premiere of the thriller Non-Stop in Los Angeles. The films’ stars Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Nate Parker, Michelle Dockery, and Lupita Nyong’o, shined on the red carpet to a crowd of paparazzi and a street full of screaming fans.
Moore arrived earliest to shine, red hair flowing in the wind. While Parker and Neeson spent extensive time with press, talking about their projects and movie motivations. Neeson stayed until the very end, with the carpet empty, long after photographers had gone, he entertained a tiny crowd of reporters, smiling and humbly entertaining questions. Nyong’o, Hollywood’s “it girl” favored to win as best supporting actress at this weekend’s Oscars, took fashionable pictures in a golden and bronze mixed short, elegant ensemble.
Hollywood names came to see and support Non-Stop with Russell Simmons, actor Tobey Maguire and boxer Floyd Mayweather spotted in the audience. Mayweather, who wasn’t even in the film, attracted so much attention, that someone who hasn’t seen Non-Stop might think he was actually in the movie.
Non-Stop hits theaters Friday, February 28 and tells the story of washed up, alcoholic air marshal Bill Marks, whose skills and reputation are put to test when he’s forced to save a plane from a hidden murderer. And being true to its name – the thriller is pure unstoppable intensity, suspense, and action from start to the very final finish.
