Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Trailer Sends Spider-Man, Kylo Ren After Liam Neeson

You either die with a very particular set of skills or live long enough to see yourself become the Takened. Such is the lesson learned by Liam Neeson in Silence, the long-awaited passion project of Martin Scorsese. Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver star as 17th century, Portuguese, Jesuit missionaries who journey to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Neeson). It’s based on the 1966 novel of the same name by Shūsaku Endō, which is odd only because I was sure the plot of a couple young white guys going after their mentor in Japan must have come from a ’90s arcade beam-’em-up. Player 2 would have been Driver, obviously.
