Can’t wait until Zombieland to see the Elm St. remake’s trailer? Well, courtesy of Myspace video, it just hit the web last night , and through the miracle of cut and paste you can see it below.
I’m pretty excited for this for one reason: Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. Dude was creeptastic as a child molestor and sexual deviant in Little Children, and the film has promisedto bring Freddy back to his darker roots. It looks like the standup comedian with knife blade aspect that the character devolved to in later sequels is gone. Granted, the ‘teen’ cast is your standard generic CW types done up to look a bit more alt-angsty, and even the non-nightmare scenes look like they take place in a grungy setting.
A Nightmare on Elm Street opens April 30th, 2010.
