New Poster & Second Trailer For ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ Released
  |  @   |  

A brand new full trailer has been released for Platinum Dunes’ remake of the iconic horror franchise, A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The movie stars Jackie Earle Haley and tells the story of a man who is falsely accused of being a pedophile and burned alive by a mob of angry parents. Unfortunately for all of us, after his body is engulfed in accusing fires, his tormented soul remains and begins to kill children as they sleep and dream.

The new trailer gives us a much better look at the new Freddy Krueger and the trippy, hellish nightmare worlds that we can expect to see. It does appear that they’ve decided to use a lot of stuff from older movies instead of creating a completely unique new Nightmare world. That paired with the difficult-to-warm-up-to appearance change of Freddy himself has fans a little worried about how the final product will play; but for now, this is fans of the franchise’s best peek yet!

SDCC 09: Jackie Earle Haley Nails Freddy Krueger In New ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ Footage
  |  @   |  

It’s no secret that I am not a fan of the current trend that’s sweeping Hollywood of taking all of the televisions shows and movies from the 70s and 80s and reimagining, revamping, and rebooting them for today’s younger audiences. So, when I heard last year that New Line/Platinum Dunes was going to relaunch the A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise, I was totally against it, as was most of my colleagues. The original is a classic horror flick, why redo it? But then Jackie Earle Haley, who earlier this year totally killed in the role of Rorschach in Watchmen, was cast as the iconic horror figure Freddy Krueger and I thought, now this film has a chance.

At the Warner Bros. panel at the San Diego Comic-Con today, Haley made an appearance along with the new Elm Street director Samuel Bayer and producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller to debut the first footage from the upcoming film.

My initial reaction was a positive one and I believe that Haley totally nails the role of Freddy Krueger. We weren’t given a lengthy look at the villainous Krueger, but what we do see is chilling and reminiscent of the first Elm Street flick. It’s hard to scare today’s audiences, who’ve basically seen it all at this point, but from what I saw, at least fans of the original franchise will not be disappointed. Check out the footage description here below.

Geek Peek: ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ Logo, Poster & Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger
  |  @   |  

The past couple of days have delivered our first very minor peeks at what to expect in the new A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot from Platinum Dunes, director Samuel Bayer, and producers Brad Fuller and Michael Bay. Various online journalists were given the opportunity to visit the set of the film recently, and while no one is allowed to get into details about that yet, a very cool title logo has been unveiled. Along with that, MySpace and IGN have both been given an exclusive image to show off: one a dark first peek at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, and the other a great teaser poster.

As it is with all of these horror icon reboots, people wonder how much exactly they will change from the original character (in this case, played by Robert England), and what route they’re going to take. With these two teaser images, we have some possible answers. In the image of Haley as Krueger, we see that three of the major four elements of Krueger seem to be fairly unchanged: the fedora, tattered and torn Christmas sweater, and the glove all seem to be in tact. The other major element is of course his disfigured face, which we get a small look at in the teaser poster. In it, it actually looks like they might have smartly upgraded the deformed face to look less like applied latex, and more like an actual burn victim. I always hoped that maybe they would go a little Two Face from The Dark Knight with it, but it looks like instead of my ash and fire hopes, they will be doing their own version of the healed up and scarred version.
