Shutter Island Trailer

Paramount has debuted the first official trailer for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, and Jackie Earle Haley. It looks like Scorsese has finally decided to take on Hitchcock head-on, and DiCaprio may finally get that Oscar he's been waiting for. Shutter Island is the first movie we've seen anything from that is a big Oscar contender this year. And wow does it look incredible. The performances all seem exceptional, DiCaprio and Kingsley especially, and I can't wait to see this story unfold under Scorsese's direction.

The story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island's fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

Shutter Island is directed by prolific filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to Goodfellas to Cape Fear to Gangs of New York to The Aviator to The Departed. The screenplay was written by Laeta Kalogridis, of Night Watch, Alexander, and Pathfinder previously. This is based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Paramount is bringing Shutter Island to theaters on October 2nd.
