Silence and The Comedian Trailers
Martin Scorsese has given us all something to be very thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday. The first official trailer for the legendary filmmaker's upcoming release, Silence, has officially landed and it provides a story and perspective of Scorsese that we haven't seen in quite some time. Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver star as a pair of 17th century Jesuit priests who venture to Japan and face persecution as they try to find their religious mentor (Liam Neeson) and restore his faith in God. Word has it we're in for another marathon as Silence pushes towards 160 minutes of screen time, but we should still expect a gripping story and phenomenal direction from this assumed Best Picture contender.
Like many great pairings in this this world, it wouldn't feel right mentioning Martin Scorsese without his long time collaborative partner, Robert De Niro. The all-time great performer has chosen some questionable roles of late, and early word isn't too favorable for his upcoming film, The Comedian. De Niro takes center stage as Jackie, an aging insult comic who's trying to reinvent his career. While it proves to be a daunting task, he finally finds inspiration when he meets the young and rambunctious Harmony (Leslie Mann). The Comedian arrives in January, 2017 and you can catch the film's debut trailer below.
