Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island - Trailer

The story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island's fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

But 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. . .

Directed by Scorsese this is looking very good and a bit Hitchcockian methinks.

As well as the two main leads it also stars Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, and Jackie Earle Haley. Let me know what you think of the trailer.

Could this be in the running for an Oscar?

I've watched this a few times now and I think it is actually pretty naff. I started off liking it and then it just seems full of cracks.

Is DiCaprio Patient 67 and it is all part of his psychosis?

Seems like a mix of bad video games and cheesy horror films from the 90s, with a load of Lovecraft style conspiracies chucked in for good measure.

Maybe it is just the way the trailer is cut together.
