American actor Leonardo DiCaprio appears at a media event at Tokyo Midtown on Thursday to promote his latest film, "Shutter Island," directed by Martin Scorsese. Due to the popularity of the 35-year-old star, the event was streamed live on the Internet, which was a first. DiCaprio, making his 6th visit to Japan, heaped praise on Scorsese and said he will be remembered 1,000 years from now as a master when historians look back at the art form of cinema. He also urged people to go and see "Shutter Island" without trying to find out anything about it beforehand. DiCaprio will head to Kyoto for a short holiday over the weekend, but he will be back in a few months to promote his thriller "Inception," with Ken Watanabe. "Shutter Island" opens in Japan on April 9.© Japan Today
