Martin Scorsese's SHUTTER ISLAND Movie Poster

by Joey Paur


The poster for Martin Scorsese's new film, Shutter Island, has been unveiled today! Sure, it may not seem as exciting as Iron Man 2, Alice in Wonderland, or Freddy Krugger, but this is going to be one of your Best Picture contenders at the Oscars next year. I can't wait to see this movie. I read the book by Dennis Lehane, and loved it. It will make for a fantastic film.

The film stars, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson and Max von Sydow. And here is what the movie is about.

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.

It's definitely a psychological thriller. What do you think of the poster?
