Shutter Island teaser?
The only thing I can think of that gets me more excited than a film that takes place in a mental institution, is a film that takes place in a mental institution that stars Leonardo DiCaprio and is directed by Martin Scorsese. Enter SHUTTER ISLAND , the upcoming thriller based on the Dennis Lehane novel and co-starring Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, and Jackie Earle Haley. The film takes place on a small island in Massachusetts’ Outer Harbor, where U.S. Marshall Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) is sent to find a murderous patient who escaped from the Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. The image below, which appeared suddenly in a Berliner Zeitung newspaper, tells us that this film will be filled with all kinds of creepy.
Whether this is in fact the film's first official teaser poster or merely some early marketing concept remains to be seen. It does however, immediately remind me of another insane asylum-set film--the grossly underrated SESSION 9--which can only be a good thing.
|Extra Tidbit:||The fact that the escaped lunatic in this film is a woman elevates this movie to a whole new level.|
