Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island gets a trailer.


As always, if the YouTube link goes dead, the official version is here.

This looks absolutely gorgeous (the cinematographer is Robert Richardson), and it's certainly fun to see Martin Scorsese playing around in genre filmmaking for the first time since Cape Fear back in 1991. Still, judging by the trailer, I'm not sure there is much here to differentiate this upscale thriller from any run-of-the-mill 'this place has dark secrets' horror film that gets released on DVD every week. Then again, there is no harm in a well-worn tale being retold by a master of the form. And it's adapted from a novel by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone). This has certainly piqued my curiosity.
