Subscribe To Creepy New Trailer For Shutter Island Updates
If things had gone as planned, right about now I'd be getting invitations to press screenings for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island, the thriller that was rather unceremoniously pushed back from an October release date to a somewhat dubious spot next February. They claim they'll be the next Silence of the Lambs at the Oscars; the rest of us are suspicious that the movie just isn't that good.

So instead of an actual movie, we've got a new trailer instead, which sticks pretty closely to the formula of the original teaser trailer, adding in a few new wrinkles and characters for good measure. Most curiously, a shot of Leonardo DiCaprio's character holding his wife (Michelle Williams) as she disappeared, which I specifically singled out when writing up the teaser this summer, has been replaced by a shot of Williams turning to ash. Not sure if they weren't happy with the disappearing effect, or if the effect simply wasn't finished, but the comparison is pretty neat (see below for side-by-side shots, in case anyone is interested in this besides me).

Anyway, you can check out the new trailer in high-res at Apple.com, or in our player below. Shutter Island stars a whole bevy of people you like-- DiCaprio, Williams, Mark Ruffalo, Jackie Earle Haley, Ben Kingsley, Patricia Clarkson, etc. etc.-- and is directed by Martin Scorsese, which means you'll see it no matter what I say. So just get to watching the trailer.
