Andrew Garfield prays to silence in gripping trailer for Scorsese's Silence

11.23.2016

SILENCE is a movie that rests pretty high on many film buff’s must-see-by-the-end-of-the-year lists. For one it’s a Martin Scorsese movie, and two because film buffs can be quite catty (Craig), so you don’t want to be left out of the loop lest ye be mocked by the most vicious of dorks. Now we have the trailer, and the need to see this movie has been cranked up to whatever goes past 11 because holy mother of god. Starring Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as two Jesuit priests who go off to Japan to find their mentor (Liam Neeson) and spread Christianity, only to face heavy persecution, has been a passion project for Scorsese for years, and it looks like he has brought his A++ game.

Behold!

What I like most about the trailer is it avoids the trap of having the movie come off as too bland and, I wanna say, religious-y. I mean, if you try to ask your friend if they want to see a movie about Jesuit priests being persecuted in Japan they would probably say, “Why would you ask me that? Do you see me smoking a pipe and stroking a beard?” But then you’d show them the trailer and they’d immediately scream, “What are they doing to Andrew Garfield!? We have to go see if we can help!” As I said yesterday, SILENCE is shaping up to be something the likes we’ve never seen from Scorsese, offering some truly intense looking scenes along with some terrific production design. Needless to say this won’t play out like any story you had to fight to stay awake through in Sunday school. I don't remember much of my own lessons as a child other than my teacher being a bit of a mumbler, but that may be because I was often drunk in those days. Ah, childhood.

SILENCE with Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson gets a limited release this December before going wide in January.

Looks solid. Garfield probably didn't have to stray too far from his Hacksaw Ridge character

By the way, Hacksaw Ridge is an amazing film. This will likely be as good or better.

I think he gives Ron Perlman a run for his money.

Blessing in disguise

I think getting fired from the Spiderman franchise might have been the best thing to happen to Andrew Garfield. Thought he was awesome in The Social Network and this year is really giving him a chance to shine.

All I gotta say is...

fucking garfield better win a damn ass oscar this year. Between his role in hacksaw and this movie he deserves it, he really is shaping up to be quiet the actor. As for the movie its self I'll watch it, IDK something felt off to me about it, can't quiet pin point it. But I'm seeing this for garfield alone.

Alright. Looks like the season of good movies has come again. Not saying there weren't good movies earlier, but I swear we went through a longer drought than usual. Or maybe that was just everything else this year.

Maybe it's just the way it's cut with the strings in the score, but did anyone else get a Paul Thomas Anderson vibe from this? The color palette, too. Kind of reminds me of There Will Be Blood or even The Master. Either way, looks great!

True. I just think it's interesting that PTA was clearly influenced by Scorcese, and this trailer was clearly influenced by PTA. I'm not trying to make a statement or anything, because I think art begets art, but I'd love to see these two at a roundtable together and see how they influenced one another.
