TRAILER: Shutter Island (new cut)

Personally, dear readers, I have to say, screw your sense of calm. I present to you the new trailer for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island.

Although it has a lot of similarities to the first trailer, and both use many of the same shots, I find the effect notably different. Here's the old one, for comparison's sake:

My impression is that the new trailer plays a bit more with the psycholigcal thriller aspect of the story, whereas the first trailer emphasizes the haunted house/ghost story elements.  I prefer the newer approach myself, but either way, I can only lament that we're not able to see this movie right now, as was the original plan, dammit.
