A Nightmare on Elm Street sets record for horror midnights

From Deadline.comClick to view full size image

FRIDAY 2:15 PM: I was just told that the New Line/Warner Bros reimagining of A Nightmare On Elm Street debuted to $1.6 million from Thursday midnight shows in about 1,000 theaters. That’s way more than the previous record for a horror flick: the February 2009 rebooted Friday The 13th’s $1 million. Today, Nightmare opens in 3,332 locations and my sources tell me right now the Friday domestic grosses look like a whopping $15M to $17M. So that’s a $40+M opening weekend for sure. In all, this is the 9th in the infamous franchise (if you count number Freddy vs Jason) with Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. (Robert Englund used to scare me so badly I couldn’t even watch the trailers.)
