TRAILER: Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island"

As usual with a Martin Scorsese + Leonardo DiCaprio collaboration, we're thrust into a period piece filled with suspense and intrigue. In this mystery thriller set in 1954, DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo play U.S. Marshalls investigating a missing mental patient (Emily Mortimer from Lars and the Real Girl) on Shutter Island. But once they infiltrate the estate, they start to uncover the secrets of the hospital. I think the fact that Ben Kingsley runs the hospital is cause for suspicion alone. Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) plays DiCpario deceased wife and Jackie Earle Haley (The Watchmen) plays a wild patient. Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel the film is based on, also wrote Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. The trailer is soooooo creepy.
