New Shutter Island Trailer Hits Internet


Although movie-goers should have seen Shutter Island a few weeks ago, Paramount seems to be making up for the delay by debuting a third trailer for Martin Scorcese’s latest thriller.

Is it just me, or do these trailers get creepier with each release? I swear that the body count has drastically increased with each trailer!

Creepiness aside, you can catch the entire film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo, on February 19.

Shutter Island Release Date Pushed to February

DiCaprio and Scorsese team up again for Shutter IslandDespite releasing the trailer last June for Martin Scorsese’s upcoming thriller Shutter Island, studio execs at Paramount have decided to push its October 2 date back to February 2010.

Garnering quite a bit of Oscar buzz isn’t enough, apparently—the decision was made due to a lack of money for the film’s promotion. A source also reveals that the move might also have been caused due to Leonardo DiCaprio‘s inability to promote the film overseas.

Paramount Chief Brad Grey is happy to have the film kicking off their 2010 slate:

“Leonardo DiCaprio is among the most talented actors working today and Martin Scorsese is not just one of the world’s most significant filmmakers, but also a personal friend. Following a highly successful 2009, we have every confidence that Shutter Island is a great anchor to lead off our 2010 slate and the shift in date is the best decision for the film, the studio and ultimately Viacom.”

Let’s hope the wait is worth it come February!
