Scorsese's all star cast Shutter Island pushed back to February

Shutter Island, originally set to open in October, a thriller noir film adapted by the novel Dennis Lehane, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio with a impressive supporting cast, has been pushed back to next February.

What was one of the most talked about films released in 2009, and highly anticipated, has now been pushed back. Lack of funds behind an Oscar campaign has been the reason for a 2010 date.

To me, that reason just seems a little fishy. Especially with the 20 million dollar price tag DiCaprio commands per movie + a percentage he gets on receipts. Could it have been a confidance issue from the studio ? Great films with great confidance backing them are never pushed back.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
