Three days shy of the U.S. release of "A Nightmare on Elm Street", Warner Bros. Pictures has held the Los Angeles premiere of the movie on Tuesday, April 27. Taking place at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the event uses black carpet to welcome all the guests. Despite the dark-colored carpet, the cast and crew show cheerful faces when spotted at the event.

Director Samuel Bayer, producer Michael Bay as well as Toby Emmerich from New Line Cinema also show up at the special screening. Additionally, the event is supported by the presence of some celebrity guests such as Kendra Wilkinson, BooBoo Stewart and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
"A Nightmare on Elm Street" is serving as the remake of Wes Craven's 1984 film with the same title. The upcoming horror film, which will hit U.S. theaters on April 30, sees Freddy returning to hunt suburban teenagers, including Nancy and her boyfriend Quentin, and kill them through their dreams. Trying to stay away from death, they struggle not to fall asleep.
