See the First Trailer for Martin Scorsese’s “Silence”

Martin Scorsese finally returns to the big screen for the first time since 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street, with the upcoming history drama, Silence.

Based on Shusaku Endo’s 1966 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.

Silence is set to hit theaters December 23.
