A new Dinner for Fiends lambasting the 2010 A Nightmare on Elm Street is on its way shortly, but to help tide you over until then, we have Trembles' take on the Platinum Dunes remake. As you might expect, it ain't pretty!
The actual box office receipts for the weekend have been counted and recounted, and yes, A Nightmare on Elm Street slashed the competition as expected, and it even did a little better than previous estimates projected, winding up with $32.9 million.
Remember last year when the equally as abysmal Friday the 13th remake made bank at the box office, raking in just over $40 million its first weekend? Sequel talk was on fire! The following weekend Friday dropped a monumental 80%. Sequel talk is now dead. Yet, we're hearing some all too familiar echoes coming out of the Platinum Dunes camp.
So, how did Platinum Dunes' revamped Freddy do on opening day at the box office compared to their 2009 version of Jason? It turns out he trounced the competition but couldn't quite top the numbers posted by PD's Friday the 13th redux.
This weekend one of the single most beloved cinema icons returns to the big screen to terrorize an entire new generation of fans. Sounds enticing, doesn't it? Well, of course it is, but the question beckons: Is it worth your time and money? We've got two different reviews to help you make your decision.
