    Scorsese's Silence and Ben Affleck's Live By Night bomb at the box office

    It might have been over two decades in the making, but the box office response to Martin Scorsese’s latest movie ‘Silence’ has been rather muted. Set in Japan in the 17th century, it finds Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver playing two Jesuit priests sent from Portugal to find their missing mentor. Not quite in the same crowd-pleasing vein as his last movie, the financial romp ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, it’s clearly proved to be a hard sell, though it may still be up for Oscar nominations.

    Watch: Martin Scorsese's back catalogue brought to life in stunning animated filmography (exclusive)

    Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s stunning new film ‘Silence’, starring Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson, is in cinemas now and to celebrate the BFI is hosting a huge Scorsese retrospective at BFI Southbank. The season, on now, will revisit Martin Scorsese’s stunning back catalogue on the big screen – including 4K restorations of ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ that will also play nationwide – as well as showcasing Scorsese-curated screenings of restored classics. Here’s the full ‘Silence’ synopsis: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) — at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.

    Martin Scorsese really hated working on The Departed

    It says a lot about Martin Scorsese’s recent films that they have somehow managed to rival his esteemed work on ‘Mean Streets’, ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, and ‘Goodfellas’. The reviews for his latest opus ‘Silence’ suggest that it matches the quality of the equally lauded ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’, ‘Hugo’, and ‘The Departed’, even though Martin Scorsese has now admitted that he actually despised working on the latter. In fact, Marty pointed out that he was so downtrodden after working on ‘The Departed’, which starred Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon, that he couldn’t bring himself to do press for the film.

    Liam Neeson: Martin Scorsese didn't take a salary for Silence (exclusive)

    Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating passion project ‘Silence’ (in cinemas on New Year’s Day) fits the bill on both definitions of the word. To finally get this version of the film – starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, and Liam Neeson – off the ground, sacrifices had to be made. Originally budgeted for $100m (£80m), ‘Silence’ was finally greenlit in early 2015 with a massively reduced budget of just $46m (£37m) after last-minute funding fell through.

    Scorsese's Silence gets serious early buzz from critics

    Rather conspicuously released just prior to awards season, Martin Scorsese’s new epic ‘Silence’ is getting some serious early buzz from critic screenings. There are no reviews yet, as they’re under embargo, but some US critics were unable to hold in their praise, dropping some plaudits on Twitter. Village Voice scribe Bilge Ebiri wrote: I saw SILENCE twice today. First time, I was absorbed, impressed, moved. Second time, I was in tears. One of Scorsese's greatest films.
