Weekly Anticipation Index: 'Shutter Island'

Featured Stories - on December 19, 2009 by Phil Contrino

Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island should post solid numbers when it finally hits theaters this February.

This week, we've added Shutter Island to our Anticipation Index. The Paramount release was originally slated to hit theaters this past October.


Shutter Island marks the fourth collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, and it has certainly been a critically and financially successful relationship. 2006's The Departed grossed $134 million domestically and it won the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director, among others. The Aviator was also able to cross the $100 million mark in 2004, while Gangs of New York posted a somewhat underwhelming $77.7 million domestic haul in 2002-close to $100 million when adjusted for inflation.

Shutter Island will appeal to the same base that supported the previous Scorsese/DiCaprio efforts, but with a story that centers around a dangerous prison it will also bring in horror enthusiasts and expand its reach in the process. The only drawback is that it won't directly benefit from the kind Oscar buzz that comes at the end of year. The Departed, The Aviator and Gangs of New York were all released during the fall.

Check out our prediction for Shutter Island as well as other films in the table below.

    “Shutter Island” is a marvellous creation by the director. This is a new blockbuster on the box office. This week the most anticipated movie is “Shutter Island” which I prefer to choose https://www.bestbritishwriter.com/ for unique task.
