The first official teaser trailer for the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street made its way online early this morning/late last night and we have it here for you, courtesy of MySpace.

The remake stars Jackie Earle Haley as the notorious Freddy Krueger, taking over for Robert Englund who made the character famous in the original Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

Here’s the teaser:

Wow. Looks pretty good to me. I think this movie will be big when it comes out.

From way back in March, we reported on details of the new script, outlining some of the changes we’d be seeing from the remake compared to the original series of films. The remake would take a more serious tone and feature less of the comedic parody-like dialogue from Freddy.

After being burned alive by a mob of angry parents, a pre-school gardener/caretaker named Freddy returns for revenge against the children, now 18 years old, that accused him of sexual abuse. But was Freddy a child molester or was he falsely accused? This is the central question and main addition to the film’s plot. Freddy doesn’t have many lines, but that isn’t all that surprising considering that the film’s producers have said the character doesn’t joke around.

Read that makes you wonder whether or not he’s truely pure evil or if he’s seeking vengeance against those who committed evil upon him.

Starring alongside Jackie Earle Haley and playing his likely victims are Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown and Connie Britton.

What did you think of the teaser?

Directed by Samuel Bayer, A Nightmare on Elm Street opens April 30, 2010.

  1. Well… although I am very excited there is another Freddy movie out. I absolutely love the whole Freddy thing… love it. But I am very afraid. Freddy is Freddy and any change in voice or looks just won’t feel genuine. I mean, his head is too big and his shoulders too scrawny, don’t see the menacing strength. And if they take out the humor, man, that’s some of the best. Thats probably what makes the difference between a regular slasher and Freddy. We love him. It looks well put together and should be scary. Sooo well see.

  2. I don’t know it looks pretty weak. The make-up is lame and the voice just isn’t evil enough. You can’t replace Robert Englund, it just isn’t right. I’ll wait for DVD for this one.

  3. jasons better b****’s!!!!!!


  4. I actually think this movie might not be too bad. The trailer looked nice, but then again, I thought the teaser for FRIDAY THE 13TH looked nice as well. Hopefully, this movie is better than FRIDAY THE 13TH. I think Jackie Earle Haley is a great actor, and if anyone were to fill Robert Englund’s shoes of Freddy Kruegger, then it’s him.

    The major concern I have with this reboot is that I read (on here, I believe) that they would be doing away with the comic effect that the original series had. That’s one of the reasons the originals are so popular and what really made Freddy iconic, not just that he’s a creepy guy that haunts your dreams with a razor-sharp glove, but that he’s a wisecracking smart aleck. If they remove that characteristic of Freddy, I think fans will be disappointed with this reboot.

  5. Generally I don’t like remakes,or seguels especially of films that are great.

    But this trailer looks good and I like the idea that they are expanding on “freddy’s character” was he? or wasn’t he? I hope it works in the film.

    spoiler here:

    Are the parent’s right to burn Freddy alive because he was molesting the towns children? doesn’t matter Revenge? Who’s Revenge? the parent’s, freddy’s, the children’s…..and it continues more horrific then the next and that’s the key element in the orginial “Nightmare on Elm Street”

    Revenge and retaliation being a downward spiral of horror is director Wes Craven specialty….in all his previous films it’s the common trend “Last House on the Left” and “The Hills Have Eyes”. and nobody crafts it better it makes him stand out above all other horror directors and made his films original.

    How or Why duplicate a Master?

  6. Doesn’t look that scary but it might still be awesome.

  7. The movie looks good I will check it out. I must agree the make up does look a little fake

  8. ok, Freddie is more than a sweater and a glove. He was Robert England. Unlike Jason and Micheal Myers they had a mask and didn’t talk. They can be played by anyone. Freddie has a face and a voice. I’m going to have a hard time swallowing this one.

  9. This for me is a treat. I may be young but I grew up off “Freddy.” These classic movies are apart of the few memories I have while spending time with my father. I can truely say I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for this movie to drop! I have been wondering why noone has remade this movie. And even though it is said the original is always the best, I am sure my spending money,will be worth it.

  10. I was pretty young when I saw the original movie, so one-liners aside, it was pretty freaking scary.

  11. I think a Freddy remake is just what everyone needs. Why don’t they remake Freddy vs. Jason too, maybe they could cast Warwick Davis (The Leprachaun) to play Jason. What a real waste of money & time for the Freddy fans.

  12. Robert Englund is the only Freddy Krueger.———love Floyd Freels

  14. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help
    would be greatly appreciated!
