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.
