Paramount Pictures has released a new movie trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s novel Shutter Island. You might recognize some of the scenes as the new trailer starts off pretty close to the first release, playing off of the same moments, voiceover and beats, but is definitely a completely new edit. Watch the trailer after the jump, and please leave your thoughts in the comments below!
The story follows a U.S. Marshal named Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) who travels to Shutter Island, a small island in Massachusetts’ Outer Harbor, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to find an escaped murderous patient in the Summer of 1954. And I’ll let the official plot description take over:
“But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. And neither is Teddy Daniels. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe’s radical approach to psychiatry? The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive them insane. . .”
The film also stars Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson, and Jackie Earle Haley.
