Why the Release Shift for Nightmare on Elm Street?


Platinum Dunes provides an answer

When an anticipated film begins to change release dates, web comment boards begin to cluck with speculation.

In the case of A Nightmare on Elm Street, the reboot of the Freddy Krueger franchise was two weeks back from its April 16, 2010 debut to April 30. The reason is simple: “We’re all alone on that weekend,” said producer Andrew Form of Platinum Dunes told ShockTillYouDrop.com over the weekend. “There were two other movies on the 16th. The 30th we’re all alone and that takes us into May.”

True, it does. However, one week later Krueger will face off with Tony Stark when Iron Man two flies into theaters on May 7. For our Nightmare set visit preview visit this spot. And, read about the Comic-Con teaser – which will not debut on the web any time soon, says Dunes Brad Fuller – here!
