I was hoping to be done with the film at least until the box office results came in on Sunday, but this is way to big to ignore. Deadline is reporting that New Line/Warner Bros reimagining of A Nightmare On Elm Street (review #1, #2, your reviews) 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. In addition, Nightmare opens in 3,332 locations and their sources tell them that right now the Friday domestic grosses look like a whopping $15M to $17M. So that’s a $40+M opening weekend for sure. Wowsa.
