Early Teaser Poster for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island
We haven't seen or heard much about Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island just yet, but once the summer is over, it'll be one of those movies that everyone is talking about. Shutter Island is slated for release on October 2nd, but the guys over at Rope of Silicon have dug up a very early teaser poster with some basic teaser art that has at least captured my attention. Though, to be honest, I actually think this looks fake (even though it probably is real). I'm not sure why, it just looks like it was poorly Photoshopped, but maybe we just need a high res version. Anyway, I'm sure we'll see more from this soon enough. Check it out anyway!
Set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels investigates the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.
Shutter Island is directed by prolific filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to Goodfellas to Cape Fear to Gangs of New York to The Aviator to The Departed. The screenplay was written by Laeta Kalogridis, of Night Watch, Alexander, and Pathfinder previously. This is based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Paramount is bringing Shutter Island to theaters on October 2nd.
