Weekend Preview: Moviegoers Will Get Lost On Shutter Island

February 19, 2010

TBOJ is back in full force today, and it should stay that way for a while!  The video may be late, but I’m all done playing catch up.  This week, we only have one new film coming out, and that’s the highly anticipated Martin Scorsese picture Shutter Island, which should nab the top spot at the box office pretty easily.  To see my prediction for Shutter Island, as well as the rest of the Top 5, check out the video above.  Then, click below to see my full box office predictions for this weekend!

I’m Intrigued: Shutter Island Preview

June 12, 2009

This film looks pretty awesome. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m definitely interested. My personal prediction is that Leo is the 67th prisoner and that he’s insane, or that he becomes the 67th. Either way he’s shi-tout-a-luck. Director Martin Scorsese(who has mastered the dark film) teams up once more with Leonardo Dicaprio, so I expect this to be a thoughtful and exciting flick. It will be released October 2nd.
