Leonardo Dicaprio in Shutter Island Trailer

Leonardo DiCaprio is back doing a period piece for the movie Shutter Island. We haven’t been so excited for a Leo movie since Catch Me If You Can!

The film, directed by Martin Scorsese, is set in the Boston area in 1954. Leo’s character, up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels, is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital.

He's been wanting to do an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn't been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister.

Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open.

As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Check out the trailer below. Shutter Island is in theaters in February 2010.
