Shutter Island was recently set to release October 2, 2009 but has recently had its release date pushed back to February 19, 2010. This mystery/thriller film is set in 1954, when two US marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are assigned to look for a murderess from a hospital ( prison ) on an island off the coast of Massachusetts. Just as Teddy’s investigation is looking promising the doctors at the hospital will not let him view records that he thinks are crucial to solving the case. Things turn ugly when communication is cut of with the mainland by a hurricane and more patients begin to escape. As things on the dreadful island worsen Teddy begins to wonder why he was really sent here.
You can watch the trailer for Shutter Island below.
This movie is definitely going to be a must see for me. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Body of Lies ( 2008 ), The Departed ( 2006 ), and Gangs of New York ( 2002 ) I think this movie is going to be a great one. The story sounds good and I really enjoy watching mystery movies. It is sad that this movie had its released that pushed back to February and we all have to wait now, but I’m sure it will be well worth it.
