Watch Leonardo DiCaprio In Martin Scorsese’s ‘Shutter Island’ Trailer

Shutter Island

The first trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s new film Shutter Island has been released on Apple, and it looks intense. You can head over there for the HD version of the trailer.

The movie follows Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), two U.S. Marshals who come to a prison-like hospital for the criminally insane that is located on an island off the coast of Massachusetts. The marshals are called out to the hospital due to the disappearance of a woman who was being kept there for committing murder. The confusing thing about it all, is that the hospital is in a seemingly-inescapable Alcatraz-like location with eleven miles of cold, cold water between them and land. To make things even more chaotic — the presence of a 67th patient in a hospital inhabited by 66 causes the marshals to wonder what exactly is going on at Shutter Island.

This is one of the best trailers that I’ve seen in a while. It has a really creepy vibe to it and looks like it could be a third movie among The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. I also do not think that I would be out of line to claim that this trailer alone is scarier than most full-length horror movies that we see these days.

Click on over to the other side to check out this incredible trailer.

The movie is based on the book of the same name by author and Massachusetts native Dennis Lehane. Lehane has become the go-to guy for Oscar-worthy adaptation content, including the Clint Eastwood-directed Mystic River, and the Ben Affleck-directed Gone Baby Gone.

Shutter Island will be released on October 2, 2009.



  1. I was loving it until they gave away the whole damn movie. I am so sick of modern trailors.

    Completely agree. I don’t need to see the film now.

  3. No matter what the trailer gives away, I’m still seeing it. It might actually be a decent film.

  4. Why is it that people just assume that a trailer has spoiled a movie without having seen one single frame of that movie aside from said trailer?

  5. ^^^^^^^^^^
    The trailer has provided enough information for anyone well acquainted enough with modern thrillers to guess the few directions this film can go in. The film lost its quality of mystique by overselling itself through a trailer. It has taken out the element of ‘who’ and will emphasize the ‘how’ and ‘why’ (a very modern quality). Perhaps the film may excell thematically but given its source material as a pop bestseller, I doubt that. Having said all of that, I have yet to see the film or read the book. I would like to be pleasently suprised. I like Dicaprio and Scorsese has had his moments.

  6. Yes. Martin Scorsese has had his…”moments”.
