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.
