I’m not exactly a Martin Scorsese fan; I still have to see a lot of his older films and I fell asleep during both The Aviator and The Departed. This trailer of Shutter Island seems great though and much more my type of movie than what he has previously made.
Shutter Island is based on the like-wise named book by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote the books Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. It features Leonardo DiCaprio as a federal marshall investigating the mysterious disappearance of a murderess who escaped from the island’s hospital for the criminally insane. Also stars Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Jackie Earle Haley.

I really like the look of this movie, even though most of the time I can’t stand Leonardo DiCaprio. But it looks like there’s more to the story than just a “find the bad guy” plot, and my mind is already coming up with possible explanations, twists and theories.
Shutter Island – Release Date: October 2009
