One of the disadvantages to not working with studio publicists is that we miss out on all the cool set visits — it’s a disadvantage mostly for us, because visiting a set is a pretty nifty perk, although reading about a set visit can sometimes feel like reading a real-time review of someone brushing their teeth. Yesterday, a studio embargo broke, and something like 15 other movie blogs posted write-ups for their visits to the new Nightmare on Elm Street set (if you want to read one, the best is from Will Goss, who leaves out the boring stuff, and sticks to the quotes from producer Brad Fuller and Jackie Earle Haley).
Out of those set visit pieces came some new images from the movie, because it’s good to break up all that copy with some pretty studio-released pictures. We’re going to skip the copy part, and just bring you the images, starting with the movie poster, and then a few stills from the movie, which look a lot like stills you’d have found in the original. Is that good or bad?
The movie opens April 30th.
