Martin Scorsese’s epic drama “Silence,” makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand Tuesday March 28, from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The film arrives two weeks early on Digital HD Tuesday March 14.

A passion project that took the Oscar-winning filmmaker 28 years to bring to the screen, “Silence” tells the story of two Christian missionaries (played by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens’” Adam Driver and “The Amazing Spider-Man’s” Andrew Garfield) who travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson, “Taken” trilogy) at a time when Christianity was outlawed.  When they are captured and imprisoned, both men are plunged into an odyssey that will test their faith, challenge their sanity and, perhaps, risk their very lives.  The “Silence” Blu-ray Combo Pack includes “Martin Scorsese’s Journey into Silence,” an in-depth exploration of the director’s quest to make this extraordinary film, which is packed with in-depth interviews and behind the scenes footage.  In addition, the film’s three main stars discuss how they prepared for their roles, as well as their favorite moments on set. The film, which received an Academy Award nomination for Rodrigo Prieto’s lush cinamtography, is rated R for some disturbing violent content.
