Nightmare On Elmstreet Movie Trailer

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 (“Lit­tle Chil­dren,” “Watch­men”).

The film is be­ing di­rect­ed by award-??win­ning mu­sic video and com­mer­cial di­rec­tor Samuel Bay­er (Nir­vana’s “Smells Like Teen Spir­it,” Green Day’s “Boule­vard of Bro­ken Dreams”), 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 (“The Haunt­ing in Con­nec­ti­cut”), Katie Cas­sidy (“Tak­en,” TV’s “Su­per­nat­u­ral”), Rooney Mara (“Ur­ban Leg­end: Bloody Mary”), Thomas Dekker (“Ter­mi­na­tor: The Sarah Con­nor Chron­i­cles”), and Kel­lan Lutz (“Twi­light,” up­com­ing “The Twi­light Saga: New Moon”). The sup­port­ing cast al­so in­cludes vet­er­an char­ac­ter ac­tor Clan­cy Brown (“The Shaw­shank Re­demp­tion,” “High­lan­der”) and Con­nie Brit­ton (“Fri­day Night Lights”).

“A Night­mare on Elm Street” is based on char­ac­ters cre­at­ed by Wes Craven in his 1984 sleep­er hor­ror hit. That film went on to be­come one of the hor­ror genre’s longest-??run­ning, most suc­cess­ful and in­no­va­tive film se­ries, spawn­ing sev­en se­quels. Now, 25 years lat­er, comes a con­tem­po­rary in­car­na­tion of the Fred­dy Krueger ori­gin sto­ry.

Samuel Bay­er is di­rect­ing “A Night­mare on Elm Street” from a screen­play by Wes­ley Strick (“Cape Fear,” “Wolf”) and Er­ic Heis­ser­er. The film is pro­duced by Plat­inum Dunes’ Michael Bay, An­drew Form and Brad Fuller, whose com­pa­ny has en­joyed suc­cess with a num­ber of re-??imag­in­ed hor­ror fran­chis­es, in­clud­ing “Fri­day the 13th,” “The Texas Chain­saw Mas­sacre,” and “The Ami­tyville Hor­ror.” The ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers are Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne, and Mike Drake (“The Num­ber 23,” “The Whole Nine Yards”). The co-??pro­duc­er is John Rickard.
