MySpace exclusively debuted the latest poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, and a brand new trailer for the film will premiere on the website tomorrow.
Freddy Krueger returns in A Nightmare on Elm Street, a contemporary re-imagining of the cult horror classic. A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another…but when they sleep, there is no escape.
Donning Freddy’s trademark fedora, red-and-green striped sweater, and four-bladed glove is Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children, Watchmen). The film is being directed by award-winning music video and commercial director Samuel Bayer (Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams), marking his feature film debut.
The teens whose dreams are terrorized by Freddy Krueger are played by an ensemble of young actors, including Kyle Gallner (The Haunting in Connecticut), Katie Cassidy (Taken, TV’s Supernatural), Rooney Mara (Urban Legend: Bloody Mary), Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Kellan Lutz (Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, Highlander) and Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights).
A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theaters on April 30th, 2010.
