Shutter Island is a hit for Leo and Martin

On Friday I posted the trailer for the Martin Scorsese directed Shutter Island, which stars Leo DiCaprio. This was released in the US this weekend and it has flown straight into the top spot taking $40 million in its first weekend. This is a record for both  Scorsese and DiCaprio, giving them both their biggest opening ever.

Closest to Shutter Island was Valentines Day in second taking $17 million and Avatar in third STILL taking $16 million. Shutter Island is released in the UK on the 15th March, so it seems that is definitely worth a watch, well lets be honest which DiCaprio Scorsese double act isn’t?
