Paramount Pictures, in association with Fabrica de Cine and Ai Films, have released the Silence trailer for Martin Scorsese’s latest, which you can check out below! The highly-anticipated feature film will get a limited release on December 23, with a wide release following in January 2017.
Scorsese, who worked closely with Fabrica de Cine’s Gaston Pavlovich on the making of the film, wrote the screenplay with Jay Cocks (Gangs of New York), based on the book Silence by Shusaku Endo. The film is produced by Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff (The Wolf of Wall Street), along with Randall Emmett (Lone Survivor), Barbara Defina (Goodfellas), Vittorio Cecchi Gori (Il Postino), Irwin Winkler (Creed). Producer Gaston Pavlovich’s company Fabrica de Cine also provided the lead financing for Silence, alongside Executive Producer Dale A. Brown of Sharpsword Films.

Silence tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) – at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.
