A Nightmare On Elm Street Fans React To Robert Englund’s Return As Freddy

Despite a fairly respectable box office take, the 2010 remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street didn’t exactly please either critics or audiences, and it’s telling that there was never a sequel featuring Jackie Earle Haley’s take on the iconic Freddy Krueger. But it’s been nearly a decade since it hit theaters, so why not have another go at resurrecting Krueger for a new audience, especially now that horror’s undergoing a renaissance in terms of box office?

That’s the question fans have been asking for years, and though we’ve heard chatter of a reboot here and there, nothing tangible has really materialized as of yet. Thankfully, then, we’ll soon get to see Robert Englund back in the role, as he’s set to reprise it next month.

Yes, though many probably thought they’d never see the actor under the heavy makeup and prosthetics again,

Robert Englund returning as Freddy Krueger for The Goldbergs Halloween episode

Back in October of last year, Robert Englund ruled out another appearance as Freddy Krueger, but it seems that must have been limited to the big screen and didn’t include guest roles in hit 80s-set TV sitcoms.

As revealed on the show’s official Twitter page, Englund is set to reprise his signature role as the razor-gloved child killer for a guest appearance in this year’s Halloween episode of The Goldbergs, titled ‘A Nightmare on Elk Avenue’.

Robert Englund’s Freddy Krueger Slashes His Way Onto ‘The Goldbergs’ (Video)

Freddy Krueger is back to terrify teens when Robert Englund brings his razor-clawed serial killer to “The Goldbergs” for its Halloween episode on Oct. 31.

In a promo for the ABC family comedy set in the ’80s, Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) nonchalantly introduces Fredward, as she calls him, and asks, “Is there a Mrs. Krueger? Because I have a Rolodex.”

Patting him sweetly on the arm, she adds, “He’s just enchanting, very well-mannered,” then points out they have something in common. “We get our nails done at the same place.”

Poor Bev. She must be oblivious to Freddy’s history of creeping into the dreams of teenagers and slashing them to pieces. Being the mama bear whom she has proven to be when it comes to her three kids, she just might be the one person that can actually take him down.

Robert Englund explains how he’d reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street

Following 2010’s disappointing reboot starring Jackie Earle Haley, it was reported a few years back that New Line Cinema would be taking a second stab at relaunching the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise with another remake, although as yet the project has failed to materialise.

For many fans, the key ingredient to the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise – and an irreplaceable one at that – is Robert Englund, who portrayed the child killer Freddy Krueger throughout all of the original films.

Englund himself has said on several occasions that he feels he’s now too old to portray Freddy, but speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour this week (via Dark Horizons), the actor has revealed one suggestion as to how he thinks a new Nightmare could work:

“If I had an Eli Roth budget I would have cast different actors to play Freddy for every potential victim,

Robert Englund Has A Great Idea For Freddy’s Return In A New Nightmare On Elm Street

Despite a healthy box office take, the 2010 remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street failed to please both critics and audiences, and it’s telling that there was never a sequel featuring Jackie Earle Haley’s take on the iconic Freddy Krueger. But it’s been nearly a decade since it released, so why not have another stab at resurrecting Krueger for a new audience, especially now that horror’s undergoing a renaissance in terms of box office? Even better, the original and best Freddy, Robert Englund, has a great idea for how the character could return.

The actor’s set to appear in the awesome-sounding AMC documentary series Eli Roth’s History of Horror and was talking the future of Freddy at the 2018 Summer Television Critics Association press tour when he said the following:

Here's How Robert Englund Would Reboot Freddy Krueger and A Nightmare on Elm Street

Here's How Robert Englund Would Reboot Freddy Krueger and A Nightmare on Elm Street
Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is, without a doubt, one of the most influential and enduring series in horror history. The property wouldn't have been as popular without its lead villain, Freddy Krueger, who stood in stark contrast to slashers of his decade; the sadistic wise-cracker was a foil to mute brutes like Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Leatherface. And "The Springwood Slasher" wouldn't have struck such a powerful chord were he not portrayed by Robert Englund, whose gait, mannerism, and smile (iconic even through layers of latex) became as integral to Freddy as the core mythologies Craven penned.

Proof of Robert Englund and Krueger's inseparability was aptly illustrated when fans soundly rejected 2010's A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot produced by New Line/Warner Bros. When another actor (Jackie Earle Haley) donned the infamous sweater, fedora, and bladed glove, hardcore "Fred Heads" had none of it.

All 43 Tom Cruise Movies Ranked, From So-So to Phenomenal (Photos)
Tom Cruise has been a consistently bankable and likeable A-lister for over three decades now. That doesn’t happen by accident. “Tom Cruise Movies” are films only possible with Cruise’s level of charisma, energy and youthful enthusiasm, and Most of Cruise’s movies are “Tom Cruise Movies.” And if anyone can jumpstart “The Mummy” franchise again, it’s Cruise. Here’s every film he’s starred in, ranked.

41. “Cocktail

Cruise’s Type-a, adrenaline-fueled drive serves him very well in movies where the stakes are high. But “Cocktail” is just “Top Gun” behind a bar. The work-hard play-hard clichés at work here threatened to make Cruise the role model for handsome, affable, lame guys you swipe past on dating apps. Cruise smartly moved on from roles like this.

40. “Endless Love

Tom Cruise has a tiny part in this Brooke Shields melodrama when he was just a squeaky-voiced teen, his first ever on-screen role.

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Trailer Takes You To A Harsh, Futuristic World

Directors James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez have teamed up for what looks like to be a fantastical and wild film in Alita: Battle Angel. While people are still dealing with their San Diego Comic-con hangover from this past weekend, 20th Century Fox releases an all-new trailer for the film which is based off of the popular Manga series “Gunnm.”

The trailer looks absolutely insane. It has a blend of great looking live-action stunts and heavy use of CGI which looks amazing at times, and at other times looks a bit too much like a video game. But while we are on the subject of CGI, the film has already seen its share of controversy. When the film’s first teaser came out, fans of the Manga series were none too pleased when 20th Century Fox decided to cast a non-Asian actress in the main role but rather casted a Canadian-American

New Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Prepares for the Ultimate Cyborg Showdown

New Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Prepares for the Ultimate Cyborg Showdown
A brand new trailer for Alita: Battle Angel has arrived. Fox opted not to drop the trailer during San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, they hosted a live-stream Q&A with producer James Cameron, director Robert Rodriguez, producer Jon Landau, and star Rosa Salazar. They dropped this brand new footage for the ambitious manga adaptation during the Q&A which is massive in scope, full of action and honestly, a bit difficult to get a handle on.

The first teaser for Alita: Battle Angel arrived in December and gave us our first feel for this crazy flick, which is a blend of CGI and live-action that, for whatever reason, just feels very strange to look at. Having the villain from Deadpool as a bad guy, using only his head and having the rest of him as a crazy CGI robot, is just one example. Not to mention the titular character's crazy eye situation.

The movie, based on the manga series by Yukito Kishiro, is based on the premise that Alita is a cyborg without a memory of who she is in a future world. Christoph Waltz appears as a doctor who realizes that Alita still has a heart and soul and contains technology that’s been undiscovered for 300 years.
