There is no denying that Martin Scorsese likes working with Leonardo DiCaprio. After the successes of The Departed, The Aviator
and Gangs of New York, the actor/director pair are back again this October in Shutter Island whose poster was released today. Just looking at it gives me the goosebumps!

The next morning a mysterious disfigured stranger (Frank Langella), tells them that pushing the button on the box will have two consequences.
