Today we have fantastic postery goodness for Martin Scorsese’s forthcoming Leonardo Di Caprio double team Shutter Island. I say fantastic, but the poster, courtesy of Yahoo, is a bit bland for my tastes. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad per se, just makes me feel a bit blasé. I think it could be that this is just the boring, ‘get all the Leo fans in poster’, while we movie geeks are seen as the converted. Fair enough my ticket was sold with ‘A Martin Scorsese Picture’ so why should they keep trying.
I do like the tagline though, and I can’t help but feel the person that’s missing is Di Caprio himself, oh you fiendish devil’s Paramount, your so darn cryptic! I’d like to prattle on about my feelings on the movie, but with the Comic Con juggernaut sure to pore forth news I can hoover up, and the fact that posters post trailer seem fairly redundant, I’ll just let you enjoy Di Caprio’s face and say “Hey that film look’s good!” and then continue with your fine day.
Shutter Island comes into focus 2nd October.
What do you think? Intriguing or boring?
