Merry Christmas: Scorcese’s ‘Silence’ is coming

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/27/16

At long last:

Paramount announced Monday that it will release the Martin Scorcese’s passion project “Silence” on December 23. The story — which the auteur of such classics as “Goodfellas” and “Taxi Driver” has been trying to get off the ground for two decades — follows Jesuit priests in 17th-century Japan as they face violence and persecution. It stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, and Adam Driver. Paramount will first release the movie in limited release on December 23 to qualify it for the Academy Awards, then open it in wide release sometime in January 2017.

I, for one, can’t wait.
