First pic of Krueger

07.22.2009by:

Following up on our A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET set visit preview, it appears as though the studio was aligning all things NOES for the Comic Con weekend coming up, with the first official photo from the film (remember, we managed the "first look" at Freddy a while back) going to a site called MySpace (never heard of it). As you surely already know by now, the great Robert Englund was replaced with the pedophile from LITTLE CHILDREN aka Jackie Earle Haley to play the lead nutball Freddy Krueger. Below is the "first real look" at Haley in costume, although even then...it's not exactly a great shot. Not sure why studios believe that releasing a dark shadowy picture is the best way to go on shit like this. Oh, maybe because it's a horror movie? No idea. Either way, this new version of the film opens wide on April 16th 2010. Excited yet?

Extra Tidbit: LITTLE CHILDREN was the first film Haley had made in 13 years.

Cool shot, but am I the only one who noticed how insanely large this man's head appears to be in this photo?

Wasnt All the King's Men released before Little Children ? And it was even supposed to be released the previous year but was ultimately pushed back ... Wouldnt that make Haley's first film in 13 years ? Just saying ...

Look at the glove with the blades. They look different from the original Freddie films. I hope this film delivers!

Freddy's Back

JEH is gonna be great as Freddy. I don't understand how, him now molesting kids is a bad addition to the film. He always kinda hinted at doing that in the movies but it was never 'known' what he actually did, besides kill them of course. The only thing I worry about is that there is a lot of supernatural aspects to NOES and we havent really seen that side of Platinum Dunes yet. It could be great but none of their movies have been really effects heavy so this could go either way. On the other

Come on.

Man, I was hoping for a shot of him in the light.

Thank you for bringing some sense to this board. The original is great, the sequels mostly sucked, and this looks to be going back to the horror roots of the original

Oh he must be getting ready to molest more children. Since I read the script and that is what he does in this remake. PD are incompetent. Probably since they hire a cheap writer a cheap music vid director, cheap actors and don't care about the turn out since the name and trailer sell it alone.

raped!?

How can this series be 'about to be raped'? This, like the halloween series and all these horror franchises are BAD movies, it's just the characters we like. JEH will be fuckin' awesome as Freddy, I'm actually excited to be scared again by a movie!

People would complain if he looked too little like Freddy or if he looked too much like Freddy. I'm glad they're keeping the original look and not heavily experimenting like Zombie did (homeless Myers). I have a feeling this film will be like the very first NOES.

I'm not complaining (I'll wait until I see the movie to make up my mind since there's an incredible lack of any information currently to really complain about) but I feel like NOES, though needing a reboot, for sure, is one of the slasher franchises that still had plenty of ground left to go if they could jut make it scary again. Englund is getting up in years, so passing the torch was inevitable, and I feel Haley is going to do an awesome job as Krueger. I think a remake was unnecessary, but

Ugh

I get the same feeling I had when I first seen Rob Zombie's Michael Myers. It's a thrill to see the character again, but the series is about to be raped.

So now we're complaining that he looks TOO MUCH like the Freddy we know and love?

Something tells me that if they'd completely changed his appearance, the same people moaning about how faithful they’re being would be writing, "That's not Freddy! What's the point of making a remake if you're not even going to keep the iconic character the same!"

From the little you can see, it looks good.

Theyre just trying to stretch out the reveal, tease it and build interest the same way they did with TDK and the Joker's appearance.

fine by me, as long as they reveal it before I have to pay to see it.

What??

Whats the point of doing a remake if the character looks exactly the same? He doesn't look updated in the slightest. Why not bring Robert Englund back? This feels like when they recasted Darren on Bewitched.

Looks good to me!

I liked all the PD Remakes. Most of them tried to be very faithful to the source material. THey werenot perfect, but all enjoyable and I expect the same for this one. Lets face it, the NOES sequels sucked with the exception of Part 3 and the first half of New Nightmare. I never liked Englund as comedien Freddy so I am psyched for this. If anyone disagrees with me fine, but remember this line Roches check in, but the don't check out. After Freddy for some odd reason turned a girl into a

Yeah, that really sucked!
