Paramount rolled out its Martin Scorsese thriller Shutter Island this weekend, scaring up an estimated $40.2 million at 2,991 playdates — the highest opening for both Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio, reports Variety via Rentrak. Scorsese’s previous top opener, The Departed, earned $26.9 million in 2006, while DiCaprio’s Catch Me If You Can held the benchmark of $30.1 million, ranking as the thesp’s all-time highest opening since 2003. Universal’s The Wolfman also lost a considerable amount of steam after a successful launch last weekend, dropping 69% with an estimated gross of $9.8 million, raising its cume to $50.3 million. Wolfman opened to $35.6 million.
