Awesome New Teaser Poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street!
While we were out and about earlier today, IGN debuted the first teaser poster for Platinum Dunes' new A Nightmare on Elm Street which will hit theaters early next year. We posted a set visit preview earlier today as well as the first official photo of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, but this is what I've been waiting to see. This is badass poster and exactly what I needed to see to make me excited for this "reboot." I'm not at all familiar with the franchise, which is why I sent Brandon to the set in Chicago recently, but this makes me interested. I can't wait to see more from it! Check out the awesome full-size new poster below.
This new A Nightmare on Elm Street is being directed by first-time filmmaker Samuel Bayer who got his start directing commercials. The screenplay was co-written by Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick. In addition to Earle Haley, this stars Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, and Clancy Brown. Stay tuned for more updates and more details this week. We expect producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form to debut some early footage at Comic-Con on Friday morning. There is also a lot of new Nightmare on Elm Street stuff floating around on the showfloor. Let us know what you think of this poster?

Why is it that every first-time director starts with a shithouse horror flick?

Awesome poster! But come on, why can't the movie industry leave classic movies alone? Everything has to always be remade because Hollywood's running out of ideas.

When it's so close to the original leave it alone. if they went in a new diection with Freddys looks (like in TCM03) í would kind of dig the project. Not I'm crying together with Robert Englund.

Wasn't sure about this at first. But now starting to actually get excited about this. Casting choice for Freddy is superb, but who else will feature in this film?

its not that Hollywood is running out of ideas, they just found a way to milk the money from the fans, new ideas are considered too experimental and they don't want to take a chance to give new directors and screenwriters a chance, so they remake-redo-re-imagine older classic's and usually end up fucking them up. But the good thing about Freddy Kruger is the psychological elements, much like Sublime and somewhat like The Machinist and Jacob's Latter, same with Hellraiser which always fucked the viewer up minus the over excessive sequels they geared out. So I'm giving Kruger and the new Hellraiser film in the works a glimmer of hope as long as they keep the psychological elements and tone down the over use of gore and blood and tits that start out pretty cool then fall flat, like the new Friday the 13th!

actually, not so awesome.

read the script review. didnt care too much for the thing. I wanna judge this movie for myself. Jackie will do a great job as freddy. He already looks creepy without makeup.

Man. Could these posts be any more stereotypical to haters? Lol "I love the first ones they were classics blah blah blah" Give the movie a chance. Its not like Megan Fox is Freddy lol they got a legitimate creepy lookin guy whose last role he threw a fuckin thing of hot GREASE into some idiots face. Instilled fear into a whole PRISON who knows he may pull it off 🙂 Come on guys. At least wait for a trailer!
