Liam Neeson has revealed the first picture for his upcoming film ‘Silence,’ directed by Martin Scorsese.
In a recent interview Neeson shed some light of the filming process. “[Scorsese] gives 200%. All he requires is that you give 100%. He’s intimidating,” Neeson explained at the Los Cabos Film Festival (via Variety), adding that he lost twenty pounds for his role. “He requires absolute silence on the set — if he hears one tiny sound, it shatters it for him.”
Co-starring Andrew Garfield, Tadanobu Asano, and Adam Driver, the film follows two 17th-century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and spread the gospel of Christianity.
The film hits cinemas in 2016.

The Lobster, which impressed critics at this year’s Cannes film festival, stars Colin Farrell as a man living in a dystopian future that requires all single people to find love or risk being turned into wild animals.

It looks like another hilarious concept from the innovative greek writer/director Yorgos Lanthimos, who also directed 2010’s ‘Dogtooth,’ which was a dark comedy about three teenagers confined to their parents’ isolated country estate, and it also explored a world of strict rules and regimes. Alongside Farrell, The Lobster stars Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly, Ben Whishaw and Olivia Coleman. You can check out the trailer for ‘Dogtooth’ below.
