As I was watching the new Shutter Island trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s film and I couldn’t help but keep thinking over and over, “wow these people know how to make a film.” From the wide shots over the ocean to the paper flying around mischievously, there are some beautiful scenes in this film. If one thing is for sure, it’s that Scorsese only works with the best in the business, including cinematographer, Robert Richardson who has worked on Inglourious Basterds, A Few Good Men, Platoon, Nixon and MANY more. His resume says enough, but in case you need proof just look at the photos below.
After the jump are 30 still-shots from the trailer for you to gawk over. The include everything from the 50′s setting and locations to pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Jackie Earle Haley, and more.
Check them out now…
Drama is set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island
Although I still think this film looks like a thriller, when you take away the creepy music and dialogue, you can see that they have made a true piece of art.
The images will be in action on October 2nd, 2009 in theaters near you.
