Offical NOES Remake Trailer is OUT!

At last an offical sneak peek.

As some might know, or others not, the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake is scheduled for release April 30th, 2010. Our information prior has been only the work-trailer to illustrate ideas for the actual film, snippits of information and knowledge of where the filming was. Now at last we have a trailer…the REAL one. The Big-kahoonie.

Trailer and stills at dreadcentral.com.

Looking at what we can, the movie is filled with the references from the first and some of the previous sequels to the original. I hope that because it’s homaging that, that they will not make a sequel to this remake. Because generally they suck, and it is no longer the 80’s and 90’s when sequels to slasher films were more popular and expected. (tell that to the Final Destination and Shrek franchise.)

However one thing to consider: Director is Michael Bay, and I do know there are people who are not fond of his work (Transformers 1 and 2) due to complaints of massive explosions and gearing to the modern American teenager rumble-tumble movie audience. Reasoning why he’s now taken on this classic 80’s slasher film is simple: it has teenagers in it and alot to do with fire and boiler rooms. Perfect for him…however much many would have liked a more reputable horror-director, not one that has fighting giant robots under his directing belt.

Note that my previous post on the remake is now a little outdated. For more information and the art-idea trailer click this paragraph.

That’s right, you know that A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise? It’s getting a remake movie.

Freddy Krueger, the burn victim villain with the claws and the means to kill people in their sleep. 6 sequels, 1 non-offical movie and Freddy vs. Jason film in the early 2000’s. A cultural icon. A horrifying nightmare to some, entertainment to many, and a sexy bloody beast to some.

So far the plans going on of the remake, in filming, have been mixed. Sure, the latest horror-icon remake Friday the 13th wasn’t that bad! But remaking such a more humor and well-known faced character? Freddy is known for personality and his face played by Robert Englund: Now he’s getting new actor, a slightly different plot-line, and expected to loose any of his humor.

What I miss is that it seems this new Freddy won’t have a smile on his face. I prefer he does look sadistic but, if he’s kept stone-cold-evil I’ll have to cry. It would be a shame.

In fact…hey, it’s looking good! EVIL. FIREY. WOAH MAN.

Jackie Earle Haley to play the new Freddy.

Have no clue what I’m talking about? Refer to this, the original movie that has spawned much sequels and franchise. I highly recommened this fun 80’s slasher flick!
