I'm not a big fan of remakes, but this new A Nightmare on Elm Street film doesn't look like it will be too bad. It seems like there are a good amount of people out there that are looking forward to this, and I have a feeling it's going to make a decent amount of money at the box-office.

Full Detailed Synopsis:
Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they’re all having the same dream–of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. And they’re all hearing the same frightening voice… One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.
But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairytale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren’t telling them. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all… Freddy Krueger.
New Line Cinema presents a Platinum Dunes Production, "A Nightmare on Elm Street,” a contemporary re-imagining of the seminal horror classic, starring Academy Award® nominee Jackie Earle Haley (”Little Children,” “Watchmen”) as Freddy Krueger. The film is 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 directorial debut.
A talented ensemble of young actors play the teenagers now taking on Freddy Krueger, led by Rooney Mara (”Urban Legend: Bloody Mary”) as Nancy, Kyle Gallner (”The Haunting in Connecticut”) as Quentin, Katie Cassidy (”Taken,” TV’s “Supernatural” & “Melrose Place”) as Kris, Thomas Dekker (”Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) as Jesse, and Kellan Lutz (”Twilight,” “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”) as Dean. The parents of the Elm Street kids are played by a talented supporting cast featuring veteran actor Clancy Brown (”Highlander,” “The Shawshank Redemption”), Connie Britton (”Friday Night Lights”), and Lia D. Mortensen.
