Empire has the exclusive first look at Martin Scorsese‘s Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, and Michelle Williams. Check out the full photo below along with some quotes from the magazine.


/Film also gathered up some interesting quotes:

Mark Ruffalo, who plays one of Di Caprio’s fellow US Marshals:

This could be one of [Scorsese’s] great films. He gets to do everything he loves about film: noir, dream sequences, suspense, tough urban stuff. It’s absolute madness, twist upon twist.

“Absolute madness.” And then Empire tell us:

Scorsese himself has likened the film to Orson Welles’ take on Kafka’s The Trial, or Hitchcock at his weirdest.

This is my most anticipated film of the year, next to Avatar. Hopefully we will see a trailer soon. The film is set for a October 2nd, 2009 release.

What do you think of the photo? Excited for Shutter Island?
