In the official trailer for Silence, we see the silhouette of a man facing a hut as a light wind blows. A voice accompanies the image, stating the following: "Our father say, 'Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every living creature.'"
As the trailer continues, Father Valignano (Ciarán Hinds) tells two missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) that Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson), while in Japan, is "lost to us" and has "denounced God in public and surrendered the faith." To recover Ferreira, the two men step into high danger as they travel to the land of the rising sun. To the sound of screaming violins and beating drums, the dramatic trailer intensifies when the men arrive in Japan, a country that has outlawed Christianity in the year the film is set. Villagers appear to be crucified in the ocean and the two young missionaries face vicious consequences for trying to save Ferreira.
