Silence is the new film from Martin Scorsese. It stars Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano, Shin’ya Tsukamoto, Ciarán Hinds, Yoshi Oida, Issei Ogata and Adam Driver. The film is based on the 1966 novel written by Shûsaku Endô and Jay Cocks (Gangs of New York) wrote the adaptation.

Silence follows two 17th-century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and spread the gospel of Christianity.

Silence producer Irwin Winkler has said the film will have a run-time of 2 hours and 39 minutes. Paramount has set a limited release for December 23, going wider with hoped-for Oscar nominations in January.

Andrew Garfield recently spoke about the film to Fandango.

It’s meditative and brutal simultaneously. It’s a very mysterious film and I can’t quite put it into words. Every time me and Marty would try to get to the bottom of its themes and what the character is going through, we would wind up talking for two to three hours, and every time there would be five minutes of silence at the end because we had exhausted the conversation and had no answers, only more questions. Then he’d look at me and go, ‘Okay kid, until next time…’

There is a lot of violence in it, but it’s done in a very different way. It’s a very specific type of brutality that was being done reluctantly, and yet with this Japanese eloquence —it had a real seduction about it. It’s really fascinating…

Thanks to The Playlist for spotting the new images.
