BOX OFFICE: Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" opened to a big weekend, more than doubling up its closest competitor, the ensemble romantic comedy "Valentine's Day." The insane asylum thriller, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, hit $40.2 million in ticket sales, the biggest opening weekend ever for both the legendary director and the A-list actor, pictured above. It is their fourth project together — a partnership they discussed with Cynthia McFadden last week in the segment embedded below. As for the reviews? Mixed. This reporter saw it last night and prefers Scorsese's "Goodfellas" and DiCaprio in "Catch Me If You Can." Yet my wife thought it was pretty good and she can be a tough critic.
