Nightmare on Elm Remake Rules Box Office Street with $32 Million
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

HOLLYWOOD,CA (rushPRnews) 05/03/10 —    – Freddy Krueger slayed them again at the box office, even after 26 years as a WB/New Line franchise. The 2010 version of A Nightmare on Elm Street proved as popular as its predecessors, scaring up a weekend-leading $32.2M.

It helps to have Michael Bay as your producer and Samuel Bayer as director, so you know it was action-packed.  Audiences also cheered (jeered?) Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy.

How to Train your Dragon kept its fires alive with another $11M to bring its cume to $192M. One more week like this one, and this dragon will fly past the $200M mark.

Date Night has wings as well, coming in No. 3 with $8M for a $74 million box office total for Steve Carell and Tina Fey, who can rarely do wrong on the little screen or big one.

Furry Vengeance was expected to purr louder at theaters with Brendan Fraser but only got revenge with $6.M. It didn’t even out-do the Back-Up Plan whose plan held steady for an additional $7M.

The season’s other big winners, Clash of the Titans and Alice in Wonderland picked up another $6M and $2M respectively, as the Kracken is up to $154 million and Alice and Johnny Depp are up to a whopping $330 million. Nice tea party.
