Last night members of the principal cast of the new version of A Nightmare on Elm Street convened at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the Hollywood premiere of their new film. Altho the movie is a remake of the horror 80′s classic, it turns out that the premiere itself wasn’t all that scary at all:
Three days shy of the U.S. release of “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, Warner Bros. Pictures has held the Los Angeles premiere of the movie on Tuesday, April 27. Taking place at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the event uses black carpet to welcome all the guests. Despite the dark-colored carpet, the cast and crew show cheerful faces when spotted at the event. Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Thomas Dekker and Kyle Gallner gather in front of a giant poster of the movie to pose for cameras. In another shot, Haley who plays Freddy Krueger is seen playfully pointing a fake razor glove to the depicter of Nancy, Mara. Director Samuel Bayer, producer Michael Bay as well as Toby Emmerich from New Line Cinema also showed up at the special screening. Additionally, the event is supported by the presence of some celebrity guests such as Kendra Wilkinson, BooBoo Stewart and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is serving as the remake of Wes Craven’s 1984 film with the same title. The upcoming horror film, which will hit U.S. theaters on April 30, sees Freddy returning to hunt suburban teenagers, including Nancy and her boyfriend Quentin, and kill them through their dreams. Trying to stay away from death, they struggle not to fall asleep.
Okay, so the premiere may not have been all that scary but I’m sure hoping the film itself will scare the hell out of me. The original kinda ruined my sleep for weeks after I saw it (many, many years ago) so it’d be fun if this remake can live up to that standard. I’m not sure when I’ll make my way out to the theater to see Nightmare but I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing it this weekend at some point. Are any of y’all planning to see A Nightmare on Elm Street this weekend as well?
