The Scorsese/DiCaprio thriller Shutter Island was at the top of the Box Office this weekend, opening with $40.2 million this week. With no other major openings this week, this makes the duo’s fourth collaboration their highest grossing opening. Director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio previously collaborated on 2002’s Gangs of New York (which opened with $9.5 million), 2004’s The Aviator ($8.6 million), 2006’s The Departed ($26.9 million). The flick, set in the 1950s, is about a Boston detective (Teddy Daniels, played by DiCaprio) who is sent to investigate the case of a woman in a center for the criminally insane who mysteriously disappeared after killing her children.
I intend to see this movie when I get the chance. Some of my favorite films are Scoresse/DiCaprio collaborations. And plus, who doesn’t like a good thriller flick?
