A new trailer for the upcoming remake/reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street has hit the web over on MySpace, and it delivers a lot more footage than the initial teaser trailer did. We get a few good glimpses of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, and he looks to be owning the role, even though his voice now seems a little bland. The faint southern drawl we heard in the first trailer has mysteriously disappeared… I wonder why??
We also get a better look at the rest of the cast, including Rooney Mara as Nancy Thompson and Kyle Gallner who seems to be playing a similar role to Johnny Depp in the original. With music video director Samuel Bayer at the helm, it looks every bit as glossy as all the other Platinum Dunes remakes we’ve seen over the past few years. However, I will say that some of the visuals for the nightmare sequences look pretty cool. I’m not expecting much from this, but at any rate it looks like it won’t be a total embarrassment. A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theatres on April 30th; check out the new trailer after the jump and see what you think.
