It’s hard to believe there has not yet been a definitive documentary about the Grateful Dead, the seminal, cultishly followed jam-band. You can get your first look at Long Strange Trip in the exclusive trailer above. Directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That) and produced by Martin Scorsese (you already know), Long Strange Trip culls new interviews, never-seen-before footage, concert performances, acid flashbacks, and more to tell the untold story of the Grateful Dead, from their conception in Palo Alto, California, to the 1995 death of de facto leader Jerry Garcia and beyond.
Martin Scorsese has been thinking about adapting Masahiro Shinoda’s 1971 novel Silence for almost 30 years. In Silence, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver play 17th-century Jesuit priests who embark on a long journey to find their master (Liam Neeson), who’s reportedly lost his way in Japan. Given how long Scorsese has aimed to make Silence and considering its sweeping scope, gorgeous visuals (from his The Wolf of Wall Street cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto) and impressive cast, the film will no doubt figure heavily into December’s award-season discussions.

Music has always been an animating energy in the cinema of Martin Scorsese, and he is of the age (he’s now 73) to have grown up alongside the evolution of rock & roll. This gives his new HBO series Vinyl, premiering Sunday, the weight of birthright: He can claim this music—from Chuck Berry on through to punk, disco, and rap-which-became-hiphop—as art experienced first-hand, up-close and personal, and has made artful use of it starting with his first major film, 1973’s Mean Streets. Vinyl tells the story of Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale in full, motor-mouthed glory, his every entrance into a room a brash, Saturday Night Fever stride.
Martin Scorsese appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night and let everyone in on his favorite Robert De Niro impersonation. However, Scorsese confessed, “I don’t really do impressions of Bob, I like to think over the years we’ve kind of melted into each other in a way.”
