Paramount Pictures has just released the first for Martin Scorsese upcoming film Shutter Island. Its an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name. The film follows two US Marshals named Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule who are assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. While their they encounter riots, untrusting doctors, and a hurricane that keeps then stranded their. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, and Jackie Earle Haley. Shutter Island is set to be released on October 2nd, 2009. Check out the trailer after the jump.
The main reason why this trailer is great is because it looks nothing like a Scorsese film. It looks like nothing anything he has ever done before and it looks highly creepy in a good way. The one bad thing about this trailer is that it seems like it gives away a little too much which hopefully isn’t the case. Despite that one problem, this looks great and I cant wait to see it.
