New trailer for A Nightmare on Elm Street is live!

02.25.2010

A couple of days ago, Mike brought us the new one sheet for the upcoming horror remake A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, and today - courtesy of MySpace - we finally get a look at the first full trailer!

I think it's pretty effective. Suitably creepy, great atmosphere, and displaying some very cool visuals. For me, a definite step up from the teaser released last September. But what do you guys think? Chime in below and let us know!

Freddy Krueger returns in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street,’ a contemporary re-imagining of the 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. Jackie Earle Haley stars as Krueger.

Extra Tidbit: Jackie Earl Haley's voice doesn't sound quite as derpy this time around, which is good.

"..AWESOME.."

Brilliant trailer! Freddy looks and sounds awesome! Its about time he had a makeover and they chose the right man for the job! Fresh and original story with a few original scenes thrown in for the losers who complain! This could be the best remake yet! Looks awesome!

was that the kid from the Sara Conner Chronicles?

The trailer looks pretty good, but man I miss Robert Enguland's humor! I hope they don't get rid of all the humor! Cool how they kept the crazy nursery rhyme song at the end!! I was afraid it wouldn't be in the film!

Pay attention please.....

The face isn't CGI and he sounds almost nothing like he did in watchmen. Of course there will be some similarities, it's the same actor, but I would never confuse the two......Also, i'm pretty sure this movie is going to be great.......

Hmmm

If I hadn't watched the previous movies growing up I would be all for this. I just don't see anyone filling the role the way Robert Englund did...will definately rent this though.

This looks like a bland and cheesy thriller. Why did they have to remake a classic.

Oh, great, they decided to make his voice sound exactly the same as it did in Watchmen, how wonderfully original of them. Now, all I'll be able to do is picture Rorschach killing teenagers if I see this. But when it turns out this is rated PG-13 (the director is saying they're trying to make a "creepy, atmospheric" movie which is basically a fancy way of saying "we cut out all the gore, nudity, and cursing to get a PG-13") I'll just get someone to put me in a medically induced coma until this

Wow. I actually jumped a few times. I like the visual style quite a bit. It definitely benefits from the bigger budget as opposed to the original.

The trailer looks decent, but Haley's Freddy is crap. The way he portrays him offers no charisma. What made England great was the way he made Freddy truly enjoy the terror he caused. This has none of that. Freddy seems like any other slasher in this. Also, people give Bale shit for doing the same voice whenever he is a badass in movies. Haley sounds just like Rorschach in this role. But that's just my opinion.

Great

I'm so glad trailers take all of the fun out of the movie by putting in the "jump scare" moments/gags. At least I know when to expect them IF I see this movie. Then again, I shouldn't expect much anyways being a Michael Bay production and whatnot.

my nightmare

i loved the orginal. Watching the trailer looks painful in all the wrong ways. For example the scene when Nancy is sleeping and freddy comes out of the wall is classic, but the CGI version looks naff. Why remake something you can't better?

Robert Englund & wes craven please forgive them for they don't not know what they do.

The trailer doesn't look too bad, and Freddy looks damn cool. I still maintain that they didn't push it as they could've but at least it looks like it'll be a good time at the cinema. Just not a great one.

Now porn? I could care less how the acting is.

Looks like total shit. No disrespect to Jackie Earl Haley. He's a fantastic actor, but I just cannot get into this at all. Robert Englund is Freddy to me and always will be. Although The Dream Child and Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare left a lot to be desired, the original films are the ones I grew up with and I just don't find this idea or the trailer appealing whatsoever.

The trailer was good and definitely made me more interested in seeing the movie, but the voice sounded a little off to me. Haley is still a great choice for Freddy, but could you imagine if Robert Englund came back for this movie. Would have been kick ass

I don't think this is going to be very good, like all Michael Bay produced horror remakes. Yeah the teens all [link] and yeah the acting will be weak. I dont know, I swear movies today suck sometimes.

This seems to be a new take on the character freddie and not the much else, which is fine. I grew up with loving the robert englund freddie, but times change.
It don't look as amazing as i had hoped but it still looks like fun. The teens look so pretty and annoying that i'll be great to see the new freddie pick em off one by one.
Go get em freddie!

This looks like pure garbage. As Jig Saw 123 said, he uses the same fuckin voice he used as Rorschach and it looks like your typical teen horror film with nothing original in it.

Looks good. It's been 10 years since the last time I was scared in a theater and this movie seems to go in the right way. Unfortunately, it's only a trailer so I can't expect as much for the movie.

This is just wrong while Robert Englund is alive and well. Not to mention it doesn't look like it adds one original thing to the original series. It just looks like a shot for shot remake of some of the more memorable moments, spliced together with horribly acted "original" backstory.

2. Unnecessary amounts of darkness to try to add to a "dark" setting? Check.
3. Handfuls of corny lines and jump scares? Check.

I'll pass.

I hold a soft spot in my heart for Freddy since I saw the bedroom floating scene, by accident, when I was like 7 and it damaged me for life. I love the series and wish it the best but I'm still not convinced.

Nothing looked very good to me. The CG is half decent, the actors look like Gap adds. It's as much a copy as anything I've ever seen. Why re-do something if you're going to take things directly out of the original? We have the same shots and plot but with worse special effects than the early 80's. That's pretty bad. God that Wall shot is awful. The sparks flying are too much.

I don't want to tear it apart but this doesn't look good. It's imitation.

DAMMIT!

You guys need to understand that I've been on board with the remake for a while. And I loved the teaser.

But if this trailer is any indication of what the movie will be... then this blows.

What is up with that ridiculous CG rendition of Freddy popping out through Nancy's wall? It looks like something out of some cheap straight-to-DVD. And the dialogue? Mind you, I definitely understand that things always look or sound different in a trailer versus the actual movie, but it all seems so

I was expecting something so much more intense - and I was hoping they'd fix the corny way that all of the characters in the original all realize that they may be dreaming of the same guy.

I'm just upset that this is one of the few movies I was looking forward to... and now it's clearly not

An improvement over the Teaser...

While I'm waiting to see the actual product before judging, there's still a few things that are off putting.

And not to sound too much like a nitpicking asshole... Freddy's voice. In the beginning of the trailer, it seemed like it was digitally altered to sound EXACTLY like Robert England; whereas, towards the end, it sounded like a bad Wolverine impersonation. Which, in my opinion, doesn't come off half as creepy as it's intended to.

All in all, I'm not blowing this film of yet, but I

Freddy still looks like crap.

Freddy looks like crap and sounds like his voice was just digitally altered from the first trailer.

The kids all look emo and another term for 'micronaps' is 'stare off seizures' where you stare at something and lose all track of time. Its a real thing. But micronaps is actually what birds do when they migrate.
