You Can Watch Shutter Island On Netflix From Today

If you fancy being thrilled before your weekend is over, but also don't fancy leaving the sofa, then Netflix may just have the answer. The streaming service has just dropped Shutter Island in the UK and Ireland.

The film - directed by the great Martin Scorsese and starring the also great Leonardo DiCaprio - was first released 10 years ago and went on to become the director's second highest grossing film ever, bettered only by The Wolf of Wall Street.

The movie is based on the 2003 Dennis Lehane novel of the same name and sees our boy Leo playing US Marshal Edward 'Teddy' Daniels, who is tasked with investigating a psychiatric facility on the titular island after a patient goes missing.

I won't spoil the rest of the film for you, but if you enjoy a good twist then it will probably be up your street... or will it?


Alternatively, if Tyson Fury's heroics last weekend have left you hankering for more boxing-based drama, then The Fighter has been released on the streaming service today too.

Also initially released in 2010, the film follows boxing brothers played by Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is based on the true story of Micky Ward and his half-brother Dicky Eklund.

The movie received critical acclaim and was nominated for seven Oscars, with Christian Bale scooping the best supporting actor award and Melissa Leo winning the best supporting actress award.

As if that wasn't enough, Netflix has also just released Oasis documentary/rockumentary Supersonic - so you can have a back-to-back brotherly biographical film binge if you fancy.

The documentary doesn't actually focus too much on the Gallaghers' sibling rivalry, instead centring on the band's meteoric rise, climaxing with their historic Knebworth Park gigs in 1996 where they played to a quarter of a million people across two nights.

Have a supersonic Sunday one and all.
