Shutter Island Third Trailer

Back in June of this year the first trailer appeared for Shutter Island, Martin Scorsese’s latest collaboration with favorite leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio. It was creepy-as-hell and solidified it on my list of most anticipated movies of 2009. Unfortunately a couple of months later news hit that Paramount had moved the release date from October 2nd this year to February 19th next year. As a movie fan – as well as a follower of daily movie news – that ranks right up there with the most annoying things to happen.

A second theatrical trailer surfaced at the start of last month that even though it wasn’t as effective the first (maybe it was the initial exposure to the creepy material that lead to the effect it had on me) but nonetheless made it look great. And now we have a third Shutter Island trailer for your viewing pleasure, which is basically a rehashing of what we’ve previously seen in the first two trailers, with some new footage thrown in. But above all, all I can think of throughout it is how much longer we have to wait for the movie to come out. Check it out, thanks to Spike:


Shutter Island – Exclusive Trailer


I don’t like the way Paramount is choosing to handle the advertising for Shutter Island, in that they appear to give far too much of the plot away. But apart from that the trailers for the movie are well put together, and look like they highlight the key elements of the film, such as the intensity and overall creepiness. DiCaprio looks like he’s turned in another great performance to add to his ever-expanding list (although I know there are some Leo haters out there icon razz Shutter Island Third Trailer ).

Alongside DiCaprio, Shutter Island co-stars Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Max von Sydow, Jackie Earle Haley and Michelle Williams. It’s directed by the great Martin Scorsese, with the screenplay written by Laeta Kalogridis, and adapted from the Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone) novel of the same name.

Shutter Island will now hit theaters on February 19th, 2010. Just a little under four months to go… [sigh]…

  1. In this new trailer does it show the ending, because the first two trailers pretty much give the entire film away.

    Funny after watching the trialers, I have 0 desire to see this,,,

  2. I just want to make it known that this is not the full trailer that aired on the Scream awards last night. For some reason, Spike TV has chosen not to show the full trailer for this or Alice In Wonderland as it was shown on TV last night.

    I guess in this case, that is good because several of you are complaining about the trailer giving away too much… but I just wanted to let you guys know.

  3. yup will ive read it, unfortunantly the first 2 trailers had me and my roomates guessing, and we were right… it does give the ending away sadly. the book almost brought me back though when the “partner” part happened.

    but the book had i not seen the trailers would have been an amazingly gut punching end of all ends.
    but Will– the end end like last page, after the craziness , made me so freaking sad.

  4. OH and if ole leo acts his heart out, dudes gonna win an oscar!

  5. So psyched! This is one of the movies I’m most looking forward to.

  6. @ rich
    Just wondering your views on the ending, not if it was good or bad but what you think the ending suggested? I know alot of people who took the ending different ways, just thinking if our interpretation is the same.

    Also, what exactly did you and your roomates guess? Not denying that you didn’t, Just curious. =)

  7. Will sorry it took me so long to respond.

    I understand what you meant by the ending having more maening than the -shocker/breathtaker moment- and yes the whole reasons behind it and the whys and hows were all important and that i feel was not given away.

    as far as how the ending was taken??

    it had a very hopeless and empty feeling for me. it fit for the character and what he had gone through. i liked the ending but the characters fate in the end -last page- was more of a shocker to me than the shocker was just because the trailer had taken that from me. I dont want to give it away but to me there was only one way to interpretate it see below…. But it also got me reading so it was a win/lose.


    How do people see the ending differently???

    he gets shocked-
    he has a dream in which he remembers-
    hope is given to the reader-
    he seems normal and recovered-

    HUGE SPOILER————————-

    then bam hes back to thinking hes teddy and talking to chuck?? which means he forgot everything he just went through

    then the hoplessness and emptiness punches you in the gut as the warden and doc come over to lobotomize him. A man so traumatized that even though there is a sane human being under that skin, his losses prevent him from retaining any memory or hold on the real world. And even his illusions are going to be taken away from him.. ouch, seriously if a book could knock the air out of you that one did.


    we guested HE was patient 67, which is like the first thing the trailer shows you lol
    leos doing to many of the main character biting it in the end you see.. departed, blood diamond, and shutter island could be added considering that the character-again the character dies

  9. sorry guessed lol, im not minding my spelling today

  10. The reason you think it gives away a lot is because you’ve read the book and it all makes sense. But for people who haven’t it’s just random scenes. The book is awesome though. I hope they don’t change much.

  11. Great movie. Disturbing, I'll think about it for days. Have to see it again—

  12. Great movie. Disturbing, I'll think about it for days. Have to see it again—

  13. Great movie. Disturbing, I'll think about it for days. Have to see it again—

  14. Excellent and outstanding movie; runs a parallel to the Mickey rourke movie,”Johnny Angel”.
