Coming to Hulu in December is Martin Scorsese’s powerful drama of faith Silence with Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver, the horror sequel Rings with Johnny Galecki, the British historical thriller The Limehouse Golem with Bill Nighy and Olivia Booth, and the family adventure Monster Trucks with Lucas Till, Jane Levy, and an alien race of friendly oil-sucking octopi.
