This weekend, the biggest television event of the year will take place, and that means plenty of commercials will be fighting for your attention. As usual several major films have managed to grab a spot during this year’s Super Bowl telecast and Martin Scorsese‘s Shutter Island is one of them. Lucky for us we don’t have to wait until the big game to see what it’s all about, we have the latest trailer right here…

Shutter Island is a period piece that takes place in 1954 during the peak of the Cold War era, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo as U.S. marshals sent to an exclusive mental hospital to investigate a woman’s disappearance. Once they arrive, they’re treated more like patients than members of the government, and slowly but surely they discover the inmates on the island might not be so crazy after all.

The latest promo is a lot more graphic than what we’ve seen in the previous trailers. This one concentrates more on showing all the craziness that’s going on within the institution. There’s even a shot of someone’s slit wrist on a table bleeding out, and I always thought the Super Bowl folks were concerned about graphic visuals during its broadcast (sarcasm)?

See for yourself…
