I didn’t even realize that Scorsese was far enough along on Shutter Island to have a trailer already, but here it is. And it’s much less Goodfellas / The Departed Scorsese, and far more Cape Fear Scorsese.

Also, it’s creepy.

Based on a Dennis Lehane novel, Shutter Island is set in 1954, where a U.S. Marshall (Leonardo DiCaprio) is investigating the disappearance of a murderess institutionalized in a remote hospital for the criminally insane, which — of course — gives Scorsese plenty of opportunities to present criminally insane folks. And you can bet your ass Jackie Earle Haley shows up. As does Patricia Clarkson, Michelle Williams, and Mark Ruffalo.

There’s few mystery writers better than Lehane; combine that with Scorsese and an exceptionally capable DiCaprio, and … it looks like a killer thriller.
