First Trailer for Martin Scorsese’s SHUTTER ISLAND

     June 10, 2009


Apple has just debuted the trailer for Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film, “Shutter Island” and all I can say is “Wow.”  This is tantalizing in all the ways a trailer for a dramatic thriller should be.  It hints at stunning visuals, deep performances, a twisty plot, and something fresh from all involved.  Here’s the official plot synopsis:

Nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. And neither is Teddy Daniels. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe’s radical approach to psychiatry? The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive them insane…

I’m totally prepared to get mind-fucked by Scorsese and the film looks like an unforgettable blend of noir and surrealism.

Okay, before I overhype it, just check it out after the jump or click here to see it in HD.  “Shutter Island” hits theatres on October 2nd.
