Paramount hasn't been historically known for their baller moves, but when it comes to their bold anti-promotional campaign for Martin Scorsese's Silence, game must recognize game. Keeping a major awards horse almost entirely on the down-low until one month before its December 23 release is one thing; when that movie also happens to be a passion project decades in the making from what very well might be our greatest living filmmaker — American or otherwise — well, that's just showing off. A Martin Scorsese movie sells itself, and Paramount has now reminded the moviegoing public of why that is.

At this point in the year we’re getting closer to making Oscar predictions and finalizing our Top 10 lists, but there’s still a few highly-anticipated films that have yet to screen for critics. One of those is Martin Scorsese’s Silence, a religious...

Given how much space physical media takes up, it’s hard for movie buffs to say no to the great promise of “cloud storage,” and the idea that we could summon anything we want to watch with just a couple of clicks. But so far, reality hasn’t matched the hype. Streaming services have been focused on exclusives and original programming, to the extent that the only way to have access to everything available is to spend hundreds of dollars a month on subscription fees. Meanwhile, older films keep disappearing from the digital archives; and even items that cinephiles “own” sometimes become inaccessible whenever software updates or a site shutters.

Martin Scorsese has been peculiarly secretive about his long-brewing religious epic Silence. There have been no festival premieres, no advance screenings, not even a real trailer to speak of. Paramount talks a big game about an Oscar-qualifying limited release on December 23, but apart from a sizzle reel of upcoming films that the studio showed to select media types late last month, it’s been mostly rumors and hearsay. Whispers of Silence, if you will.

Here’s Our First Look at Adam Driver in Martin Scorcese’s ‘Silence’

Martin Scorcese’s Silence, which pretty much everyone was completely unaware of until it announced a release date coming up later this year, has a mysterious plot, and a hugely talented cast. With Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, and Adam Driver in starring roles, it would be very difficult for this movie to be a miss. We’ve seen stills of Neeson and Garfield so far, but Driver’s look has been kept under wraps — until today, when Paramount released a new still.

Martin Scorsese Manages to Cut ‘Silence’ to Under Three Hours

There’s an old adage that once a filmmaker reaches a certain point in his or her career, they become incapable of delivering a movie with a running time of three hours. This has become increasingly true of directors who work in both art films and superhero adaptations. I’d wager that most of us don’t spend time worrying about whether our favorite horror film or Disney musical will crack the 180 minute mark, but if the movie stars Batman or was directed by Martin Scorsese? Then yeah, it’s a legitimate concern.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Could Be His Longest Film to Date

Paramount has yet to confirm a release date for Martin Scorsese’s new film, Silence, which may or may not hit theaters during awards season. The iconic director’s latest is a period drama based on the Shūsaku Endō novel of the same name, and stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver — and although we’ve seen a few stills from the film, the studio has yet to release an official trailer, making Silence and its potential late-2016 arrival all the more intriguing. Adding to that curiosity is a new report suggesting that the forthcoming drama may be Scorsese’s longest film to date.

Martin Scorsese has been talking about making The Irishman for so long that we were starting to think that the crime drama would never happen — much like his Frank Sinatra movie. And while we still have no clue if Silence is hitting theaters later this year, it looks like the iconic director is getting ready to defy our skepticism as The Irishman does indeed appear to be his next film.

Even diehard fans of HBO’s Scorsese-Jagger driven Vinyl knew that Season 2 would bring about some significant changes, but it looks like the record skipped after all. Despite setting a new showrunner after a formal Season 2 renewal, HBO has officially abandoned plans for Vinyl, effectively cancelling the prestigious flop.
