A Nightmare on Elm Street

(2010)

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Wes Craven Won't Ever Go Back to ‘Elm Street’ or Freddy Krueger

Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street remake/reboot, which was released in April of last year, was both a critical and financial flop. Fans hated what Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form did with the character and the changes made to the original storyline.

Now that Wes Craven, original creator of the that film's iconic slasher Freddy Krueger, has returned to Woodsboro for Scream 4, some fans have speculated that he may eventually return to A Nightmare on Elm Street as well somewhere down the line. After all, he did produce a remake of his very own The Last House on the Left.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘Iron Man 2’ Destroys the Competition with $133 Million

With the summer movie season officially on its way and to nobody's surprise, the most anticipated film of the summer, Iron Man 2, blew up the box office with an astonishing $133 million. The film came in just a little over it's predicted $130 million total and scored the fifth highest grossing opening weekend of all-time, right behind The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 3, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, respectively. The film, which is directed by Jon Favreau and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, opened on 4,380 screens and earned $30,502 per screen. The film opened last week internationally and had already earned $132 million before this weekend, which combined should make Marvel Studios and Paramount executives very happy having already earned back their purported $200 million production cost and then some in the first two weeks of it's worldwide release. Last week's number one film, A Nightmare On Elm Street dropped an amazing 72.1% in it's second week taking the number two spot on the charts. Director Samuel Bayer's re-imagining of the classic 1984 horror film stars Oscar Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley as the iconic Freddy Krueger and earned only $9.1 million at the box office this weekend. The film was seen on 3,332 screens and earned $2,752 on each, which brings the films total gross to around $48 million in just two weeks, well beyond it's $35 million production cost.

Slipping one spot back from last week to number three is the animated movie that just won't quit, How to Train Your Dragon, which earned another 6.7 million this weekend. The film, which stars Gerard Butler, Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Craig Ferguson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jonah Hill and Kristen Wiig has now made $201 million in seven weeks on the charts, surpassing it's $165 million production cost. While the film dropped 36.3% and was seen on 423 less screens than the week before, it still managed to earn $2,251 on each of its 3,003 screens. Falling one spot back from last week to the number four position on the charts is the Steve Carell & Tina Fey comedy Date Night, which earned an additional $5.3 million this weekend. The film dropped 30.1% from the previous week and was seen on 359 less screens, earning $1,939 in each of the 2,734 theaters it was shown in. The movie has now earned $80.8 million in just five weeks, surpassing its $55 million production cost. Finally, rounding off the top five this week and falling back one spot from last week is the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy The Back-Up Plan co-starring Alex O'Loughlin. The film dropped 40.1% from its debut last weekend and earned $1,447 on each of its 3,003 screens for a weekend total of $4.3 million. The film has now grossed around $29.4 million in just three weeks but is still short of earning back it's $35 million production cost.
