Many film fans feel like they're always waiting on a new Martin Scorsese epic. But when it comes to his new project Silence, the filmmaker himself has been waiting 28-years to make it. Silence is a passion project about two Jesuit priests who head out into the Japanese jungle to find their mentor and spread the gospel of Christ. It stars Liam Neeson, Adam Diver and Andrew Garfield.

Silence hits theatres on December 23. Watch the trailer below.
