Wes Craven
Moviemaker Wes Craven has revealed his "A Nightmare on Elm Street" films were inspired by real-life events.

The horror film icon admits he read a newspaper article about a boy who was so scared of his dreams he refused to sleep - and when he finally became too tired to stay awake, he died.

The director tells USA Today, "I had read this newspaper account about a kid who was so convinced someone was trying to kill him in his dreams, he refused to go to sleep.

"One night he finally did, woke up screaming and was dead before his parents got to him.

"That got me to thinking, 'This would make...

First Images Of Rooney Mara As Lisbeth From 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'

Rooney Mara
When Rooney Mara was cast as Lisbeth for the upcoming David Finher remake of 2009’s "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" I was a bit skeptical. One, I didn’t think she fit the image of tough girl Lisbeth and two that she hasn’t had many acting roles and is an up and coming talent. Her portrayal of Nancy in the recent "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake was lacking at best. I digress however, if Fincher (who worked with her on his upcoming "The Social Network") vouches for her and thinks she’s the right one to bring his vision to the screen, I’ll stand by it. After all, Fincher is a visionary a...

High profile actresses rumored to be up for the role included Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Ellen Page, and Carey Mulligan.

'Iron Man 2' Absolutely Dominates Box Office

Iron Man 2
"Iron Man 2" has rocketed to the top of the box office chart to score the fifth biggest opening weekend in history with a powerful $133.6 million.

The sequel to the 2008 hit, starring Robert Downey, Jr. as the comic book superhero, dominated movie theatres this weekend as the nation celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday.

The bumper figures overshadowed the takings of the original "Iron Man," which grossed $98.6 million when it debuted in 2008.

However the follow-up failed to match the record set by "The Dark Knight" in 2008, which holds the title for the biggest opening weekend ever at the ...

On Thursday, I watched the reboot to the Freddy Krueger series “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” The film kept my attention however it did not blaze a new trail in the genre or introduce any compelling fresh elements to Krueger’s origin story.

It seemed the real purpose of this remake was to introduce us to the new actor playing Krueger, Jackie Earle Haley. Krueger was exclusively portrayed before by Robert Englund, which made the actor synonymous with the character. Haley is consistently creepy and perverted as Krueger like Englund. Unlike Englund though, his makeup allows him to appear mo...

Horror icon Freddy Krueger killed competition at the box office at the weekend as "A Nightmare On Elm Street" debuted at the top spot with $32 million in earnings.

Twenty-five years after Robert Englund debuted as the serial killer who murders teens in their dreams, "Watchmen" actor Jackie Earle Haley slips on the famous Freddy mask for another sequel.

Haley's remake is the 10th "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie in the franchise, which has also spawned two TV series.

Meanwhile, family film "How to Train Your Dragon" slips from first to second place, adding $10.8 million to its new six-week...

'Saucy Aussie' Sophie Turner - Hot Or Not?

Sophie Turner
Nicknamed "The Saucy Aussie" on her official website, Australian supermodel Sophie Turner is a bona-fide attention getter, especially in a tight white top and hot black pants that look like Freddy Kruger was trying to get a piece of her.

While we're just getting to know Sophie here in the States, she's regarded as a household name down under and does fashion, glamour and swimsuit modeling (the latter of which is our favorite!).

Sophie began her career on the Australian Network Ten's "Search for a Supermodel" in 2000-2001. Contestants on the show competed to win a contract with the prestig...

Nightmare on Elm Street 2010
I saw “The Losers” last Monday, which I did not particularly care for. The cliché action movie had all the wrong stereotypical aspects of the genre and none of the right ones. The only things that caught my interest were the actor Chris Evans who was the only one of the protagonists with a personality, a certain special song by the band Journey, and the dastardly villain played by Jason Patric. My Grade: C-

Since Thursday night I have been attending screenings of movies and documentaries for the Boston Independent Film Festival. I have seen some fantastic films including “Cyrus,” “Bass...

Kellan Lutz Talks Underwear Ads On Jimmy Kimmel's Show (Video)

4/6/2010 2:51pm EDT
Kellan Lutz was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about his part in Nightmare on Elm Street, his underwear ads, and how he stays in shape.

Apparently Lutz works out all the time, even when he's in L.A. traffic. "I haven't killed anyone... yet," he jokes.

His Calvin Klien underwear ads were a hot topic, though, and he admits his family is also getting a lot of attention because of them. He says that his grandparents' neighbors are hounding them for any family pictures, and they are just fine with making copies. They even handed out photos of him working on their farm while he was seven, in his ...

Freddy Krueger Gave Jackie Earle Haley Real Nightmares

Freddy Krueger, the legendary killer of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, invades his victims’ dreams and kills them with their worst fears. In the new remake of the series, Jackie Earle Haley plays Freddy Krueger, under a thick makeup for Freddy’s burned face. His nightmare was getting stuck in the prosthetics.

“There was one night, we'd been going for a week straight,” Haley recalled. “When we're in that stuff, consecutive days start to take a toll. On the fifth day I remember lying in bed, this is after the wrap, and it suddenly dawns on me that all the make-up is still on my face. It...

Kellan Lutz Gets Sliced In 'Nightmare On Elm Street' Trailer (Video)

3/7/2010 9:00am EST
Kellan Lutz has appeared in the latest Nightmare On Elm Street trailer, answering any rumors over whether or not the Twilight star would show up in the horror remake.

In the trailer, Lutz gets a little drowsy in a diner. And for anyone who is a fan of the series, you know what that means: an introduction to Freddy Krueger! It appears that Lutz manages to escape with only a cut, but if someone is getting attacked in a trailer, their chances of surviving the entire film are that good!

A Nightmare on Elm Street is currently slated for an April 30 release. It also stars Jackie Earle Haley, Ky...
