After a 20-year wait, and a long silence (!) from Paramount’s marketing department, our first proper look at Martin Scorsese’s passion project is finally here. The first trailer for the acclaimed filmmaker’s Silence – an adaptation of Shūsaku Endō’s novel – has finally arrived (following an HD leak, the trailer was originally due to drop Saturday), and you can watch it below:
SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor — at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson and Adam Driver, Silence is in limited release in the U.S. on December 23, with a wide release in January. The UK gets the film on January 1, 2017.
