Movies: Silence

A trailer released for Martin Scorsese's "long-in-coming epic" Silence, adapted from the novel by Shūsaku Endō, "is thrilling, set to screaming violins, intense martial drumming and blasts of the religious imagery and violence all but perfected by Scorsese. There will be crucifixions," Deadline reported.

The film, which opens December 23, stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Tadanobu Asano, Yosuke Kubozuka, Ciarán Hinds, Shinya Tsukamoto and Issey Ogata. The screenplay is by Jay Cocks and Scorsese.
