Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island No. 1 at the Box Office, Making It the Best Debut for the Director and Actor DiCaprio

Box Office: Shutter Island Captures Audiences

It looked spooky, but that didn't deter moviegoers from Martin Scorsese's latest addition to his arsenal, Shutter Island. The psychological thriller took in $40.2 million, making it the box office champ — and the biggest debut for the director and his lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Valentine's Day lost steam with its holiday now over, dropping nearly 70% over the weekend with $17.1 million for second place. Avatar followed close behind with $16.1 million for third.

Finishing out the top five was family film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief with $15.3 million and The Wolfman with $9.8 million.

Buzz are you sure this is Leo's biggest debut? I could have sworn Titanic raked it in much higher for Leo.
