Shutter Island Gets a One-Sheet

When the trailer for Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island hit the Web weeks ago, just about everyone was surprised at how genuinely spooky looking the film seemed to be. It’s rare that a genre site like ours ever gets to cover a Scorsese film, so to say we were pleased is an understatement. That being said … we now bring you the film’s first official one-sheet.

The film, written by Laeta Kalogridis and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson, and Max von Sydow, centers on the story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule, who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

Check out the poster art below courtesy of and watch the trailer again too!

    Wow, this appears to be an intense story. I think that Laeta Kalogridis is a writer that’s going to gain some more notoriety over the years. Pathfinder was the first film I’d seen that he had written and I was impressed at how well he fills the story in, meaning he doesn’t inundate with holes that leave you questioning everything. If this is his, you can be sure this is going to be a well-thought out story that doesn’t conform to movie-making molds.

      Uhm, Laeta Kalogridis is a woman, actually.
