Here’s a new extended spot for Martin Scorsese’s upcoming religious drama Silence. Based on Shusaku Endo’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the film 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.
Tadanobu Asano, Ciaran Hinds, Shinya Tsukamoto, Yosuke Kubozuka, Issey Ogata and Nana Komatsu also star. Silence opens in theatres December 23rd. Spot via The Film Stage.
