Trailer Debut: Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island

Creepy, atmospheric, and uber intense trailer for Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s upcoming (horror?) thriller “Shutter Island”. It sure looks like Scorsese is in fine form here, even if DiCaprio’s accent is a little hard to get a handle on. I’m sure it’s legit as all get out, but boy, it sounds incredibly affected. The cast, of course, is simply stellar, with DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, and Emily Mortimer. The first trailer for “Shutter Island” below.

It’s 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He’s been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn’t been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy’s shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals “escape” in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything – his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, Jackie Earle Haley, Patricia Clarkson, Elias Koteas, and Ted Levine. Drected by Martin Scorsese and based on the novel by Dennis Lehane.

Shutter and run October 2.
