Paramount's Shutter Island Superbowl TV Spot Arrives Early

Yep, if you didn't know, the Superbowl is this weekend. And that means new TV spots for a whole bunch of upcoming movies. Paramount has decided to release their new TV spot for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island a few days early, probably because we've already seen multiple trailers for this and a 30-second TV spot isn't that exciting of a reveal. This looks really creepy and I'm sure it's going to scare some Superbowl audiences (or piss them off) but I personally can't wait to see this movie. I've been anxious to see the next Martin Scorsese-directed feature and I'm glad it'll finally be in theaters in just a few more weeks. Enjoy!
Watch the Superbowl TV spot for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island:
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 mental hospital for the criminally insane.
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. Paramount is bringing Shutter Island to theaters starting on February 19th this month.
Great book, still never heard why they pushed it back from October of last year.

That has to be Robert De niro at 22 seconds in the trailer. But he is not listed in imbd.com... interesting

Jason you may be right, its either De Niro or Elias Koteas. Actually I think it is Koteas.

They used alot of information on the Director Martin Scoresese previeus titled film like Raging Bull, Goodfeller, the Departed, and the like. Why didn't they say from the oscar wining Director Martin Scoresese and then the parts showing taken up by the titles of previous Scoresese film could have been taken up by Actual footage from the film.

Looks a great film! I love that the super bowl is so boring they have to have film trailers in between it to make it exciting. Grown men wearing pads like babies running around stopping every two seconds.

Looks great, and it has this rotten foggy atmosphere.
Martin Scorsese on Feb 4, 2010
To be honest, I hated that. I think the movie looks great, but that trailer was WAYY to quick and the cuts were way to fast.

I've been waiting for this movie since last year, looks fantastic. Hey Crapola, your face is boring. The Superbowl is going to be awesome. Go Peyton!

I agree with #1 and #5. I read the book and enjoyed it. I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a great book but it was enjoyable. However the plot was easy to figure out and halfway through the book you already know the ending so the movie will be the same for those that pay attention to the fomulas of movies and books. Clues are always given that if you pay attention you can easily figure the story in almost every type of movie. An Example would be the Prestige. Who didn't figure out that he had a twin brother early on in the movie. Very rarely do you find a movie or book that keeps you guessing. It will be an enjoyable film but nothing that will have you guessing over what's going on.
