It’s almost here, boys and girls! We’re just a couple of days away from the return of one of the biggest cinema icons to ever grace the big screen, Freddy Krueger. To celebrate, we have our best look yet of Jackie Earle Haley as the razor-fingered villain in Platinum Dunes’ A Nightmare on Elm Street.
The Samuel Bayer directed remake stars Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown, and Connie Britton and focuses on a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.
For more info visit the official A Nightmare on Elm Street website, and look for the film in theatres on April 30th, 2010.
“Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse, and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night they’re all having the same dream — of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face, and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. And they’re all hearing the same frightening voice…
One by one he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his and the only way out is to wake up.
But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairy tale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren’t telling them.
Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all… Freddy Krueger.”
