This is officially the third trailer from the “Nightmare on Elm Street” reboot, which is brought to you by the boys at Platinum Dunes aka Michael Bay and company, and directed by slick MTV music video vet Samuel Bayer. The new trailer is basically a shorter, more theatrical-ready version (about two minutes long) of the previous one (which you can check out again here), so it really doesn’t offer anything new.
Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley) 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.
Starring Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown, Connie Britton, Lia D. Mortensen, Charles E Tiedje, and directed by Samuel Bayer.
Freddy comes home April 30, 2010.
