Yesterday we brought you our full report from a visit to the set of Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street remake starring Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Kellan Lutz, Thomas Dekker, and Clancy Brown. Now today we've got the new official poster courtesy of MySpace. And on Thursday we'll have the final trailer as well. The first poster for this Nightmare on Elm Street remake debuted at Comic-Con last July - see it here. This new one is simply an alternate version of the original poster with a different Freddy Krueger pose, but I like it a little better. There's just something very creepy about this. Check it out below!
A new reimagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people inside their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality, too.
A Nightmare on Elm Street is directed by first-time filmmaker Samuel Bayer, who got his start directing commercials. The screenplay was co-written by Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick (The Saint, Doom). This is a remake of Wes Craven's original Nightmare on Elm Street horror classic from 1984. New Line / Warner Brothers is bringing A Nightmare on Elm Street to theaters on April 30th just before summer arrives.
Damn, this looks awesome.

There were trillions of billions of millions of potential posters that could have been made for the new A Nightmare on Elm Street, and this is the best one of them all.

Looks cool. But Englunds Freddy still kicks this imposters ass. They should have gone with a more different look, now it's really a copy of Englunds with small changes.

The Poster looks Awsome, but one? didn't Freddy have Blade gloves on Both Hand's.

Cineprog: No. I'm really looking forward to this, think it might actually stand out from the remake crowd.
