I’ll save the full-steam-ahead rant on how badly I want to see Martin Scorcese’s Shutter Island for when an actual trailer surfaces, or at least some new stills. For now, though, I can’t let this unremarkable poster go unnoticed. This poster is pretty blah, but the film is still duking it out brass-knuckles-style with Inglourious Basterds for my coveted “Most Anticipated of 2009” honor. Shutter Island has the edge, only because it’s an adaptation of my current favorite book. That could change once reviews for Inglourious Basterds begin trickling in from Cannes.
