The people behind the new A Nightmare on Elm Street remake have unveiled your first look at the infamous Freddy Krueger in the new film, played by Jackie Earle Haley. Take a look...

The New Freddy Krueger

A Nightmare on Elm Street Poster

Are you ready for Freddy? We can't believe it's been 25 years since Wes Craven's creepy gloved killer started invading our (and Johnny Depp's!) dreams. But when we heard that 'Watchmen' star Jackie Earle Haley was taking on the roll, we knew this re-imagining of the classic slasher was off to the right start. Check out the exclusive first shot of the new Freddy Krueger in 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' below and tell us what you think! Are you excited for the movie to hit theaters in 2010?

CLICK HERE to check out a preview of our recent visit to the set of the film.

A Nightmare on Elm Street slashes it's way into theaters April 16th, 2010 and stars Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Katie Cassidy and Connie Britton.

A Nightmare on Elm Street was released April 30th, 2010.

    Freddy was made to be a serious, evil bastard. He was later made into a cartoon character with catch phrases and silly behavior. The series was destroyed because of this. I'm looking forward to seeing the real Freddy again.

      Ok... first of I would like to take a moment to explain: There can never be another Freddy like Robert. He is and will always be Freddy. Second, Jackie could probably bring the "scary" back in the world of Elm Street, but that's not what Freddy is about, and it haven't been for a long time.

      The "Nightmare"-films is all about Freddys awesomeness and the way Robert brings him to life!

        Will Freddy finally be scary again? Please let him be scary again!

            Still apprehensive about this one but I will give it a chance. Do not think it will come close to the original though.

              Wow that sucks, lol the trailer never got shown at Comic-Con for some reason...

              Brad Fuller has apparently updated his blog and stated that there won't be a comic-con trailer and there won't be one online for a while, until then, that's apparently when the real hype will begin.

              I'm guessing were gonna get a trailer either attached to Halloween 2 or sometime in Halloween to be attached to Saw 6

                I'm eager to see how this turns out... It'll be something if they can bring Freddy back after all of the crappy movies he's been in/had. Don't get me wrong Freddies a icon but, you know...

                    And this is an apparent make up pic of freddy but no one knows weather its real or not, i reckon it might be a marketing ploy by PD

                      the thing is that a lot of people have read the SCRIPT, thats gonna be this films downfall.

                      The trailer sounds interesting though, the details are here

                      but the fact that Platinum Dunes always make stuff look good but the final product is always disappointing is their downfall

                        good lookin, though I'm still skeptical about the probability of this remake doing well.

                            Robert England isn't that great, you guys are giving him way too much credit, that's all he's done. Jackie's got a cool voice, which could be scarier than England's.

                                im a huge Robert Englund as Freddie fan but I have not the slightest of problems with Jackie playing Freddie... I think he will do an amazing job
