Shutter Island French trailer
The French trailer for Shutter Island is online, and while I only understand a few phrases here and there the imagery is extremely powerful and I think is a testament to how well the trailer, and hopefully the rest of the film, is shot.
Shutter Island is the Martin Scorsese directed adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, Jackie Earle Haley, Elias Koteas, Patricia Clarkson, Ted Levine and John Carroll Lynch. What a line-up.
The story of Shutter Island is set in 1954 and sees two U.S. Marshals arrive on the island to investigate the disappearance of a patient. The lead Marshal has been wanting to investigate the island for some time for purely personal reasons, and so this seems like a perfect opportunity.
However while on the island the people running it are proving to be uncooperative and obviously hiding things from him, and when a storm hits the island and prisoners escape, even the Marshal is beginning to doubt his own sanity.
It sounds an interesting story and from all accounts the novel is very good. We've seen the English trailer before, but have a look at the differently cut French trailer for Shutter Island.
