Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for the upcoming horror remake A Nightmare on Elm Street, which stars Jackie Earle Haley as the iconic dreamscape killer Freddie Krueger. Just as any great horror trailer tends to do, this one opens with something quite shocking — quiet, spooky calm, then BAM! It gets me every time. But I’m a gigantic wimp. Hopefully you will hold up better, as this trailer runs over two minutes long and definitely brings some terror.
You can check out the new trailer and the film’s official synopsis below. A Nightmare on Elm Street comes to us from the folks at Platinum Dunes, producers Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. They are the gents who brought us remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and last year’s Friday the 13th. This time they bring in director Samuel Bayer and take a cast of nubile youths back to Elm Street, where they will be tortured slowly by sleep deprivation and — as we see in this trailer — one creepy looking Jackie Earle Haley.
A Nightmare on Elm Street opens April 30, 2010.
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
Donning Freddy’s trademark fedora, red-and-green striped sweater, and four-bladed glove is Academy Award® nominee Jackie Earle Haley. The film is being directed by award-?winning music video and commercial director Samuel Bayer, 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, Katie Cassidy, Rooney Mara, Thomas Dekker, and Kellan Lutz. The supporting cast also includes veteran character actor Clancy Brown and Connie Britton.
