Shutter Island Sinks into 2010

Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow and Jackie Earle Haley has been pushed back from its original October 2 release date all the way to February 19, 2010.

The Shutter Island trailer had been generating strong buzz and potential awards consideration. Forced with a difficult economic climate, Paramount was forced into the move which will push the film’s earnings into a different quarter which otherwise might have come up short on shareholders expectations.

Once the move was made, Twentieth Century Fox immediately slid Drew Barrymore’s Whip It into the October 2 slot where its only competition will be Disney and Pixar’s release of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D.

Be sure to watch the Shutter Island trailer if you have not done so yet.
