Shutter Island is a psychological mystery-thriller directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is based on Dennis Lehane's 2003 novel of the same name. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as U.S. Marshal Edward "Teddy" Daniels, who is investigating the psychiatric facility on Shutter Island. The Blu-ray includes a Behind the Shutters featurette that follows the film from its inception through the production process to the big screen and Into the Lighthouse, a feature that discusses the historical landscape of psychiatric therapies during the 1950s through interviews with cast and crew. Get it.

The album's first single, "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)," is by Muse. Other artists on the record include The Dead Weather, The Black Keys, and Band of Horses.
