It's been a while — since 2013's Wolf of Wall Street, to be exact — but finally ol' Marty is back at it on the silver screen, and this time he has Christianity in his sights with historical drama Silence.

Based on the 1966 novel of the same name by Shusaku Endo, the 17th century set movie stars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson. When a high-rank priest (Neeson) goes missing on a missionary trip to Japan — where Christianity is outlawed — two young Jesuits (Garfield, Driver) are dispatched on what is essentially a suicide mission to find him. In feudal Japan, any talk of God is met with persecution and torture.

Described by Scorsese as a personal passion project that's been in the works for 28 years, here the master trades in gangsters and guns for religious imagery and crucifixes. With a running time of two-and-a-half hours, don't be surprised if this epic cleans up at the Oscars.

You can catch Silence over the holidays when it hits theaters December 23.

Watch above, and then watch Natalie Portman star in the powerful trailer for Jackie.
