Shutter Island Teaser Poster Revealed

By Steve Evans

Paramount Pictures has released a teaser poster for the upcoming Martin Scorsese thriller, Shutter Island. A placekeeper for the film's website is now online, with the promise of more content coming soon.

This is going to be one of the greatest films of the year, hands down. Tentative release date is Oct. 2, just in time for Oscar season.

If this synopsis doesn't get you salivating, film fans, you'd better check yerself into a hospital and get defibrillation double-quick:

"From Oscar®-winning director Martin Scorsese, "Shutter Island" is 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 coast of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island's fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane."

Ben Kingsley and Max von Sydow are in there, too.

I will be all over this picture opening day like a duck on a Junebug.

Why? After four decades of crafting amazing films, this greatest of living directors would still be a legend on the basis of these titles alone:

Taxi Driver. Raging Bull. Goodfellas. The Departed.

Scorsese is the Man.
