The folks in Spain took a break from celebrating their World Cup victory last night to get their kicks at the Madrid premiere of Pesadilla en Elm Street (gringo translation: Nightmare on Elm Street). Jackie Earle Haley, who plays Freddy Krueger in the Platinum Dunes remake, sported a Spanish soccer jersey to the event and even demonstrated some of his moves (see gallery below).
Joining Haley at the shindig were many of Spain’s celebrities including actors Ana Fernandez, Andrea Duro, the very cute Ursula Corbero, Luis Fernandez, Gonzalo Ramos, pop singers Angie, Labuat, and Edurne, and Spanish designer Carlos Diez.

Actress Aroa Gimeo was also in attendance. Gimeno stars in the Spanish short film Zombies & Cigarettes and the Spanish soap “Sin Tetas No Hay Paraiso,” which translated literally means “Without Tits, There is No Paradise.” It’s funny because it’s true.

Imagine getting stuck in an elevator with sexy Serbian-born actress Bojana Novakovic (Drag Me to Hell). Not such a bad thing, right? But, what if the devil was in that very same elevator cock-blocking you? Now, you’ve got a horror movie.
Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for its upcoming supernatural frightener Devil. Directed by Drew and John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine), the film centers on five strangers trapped in an elevator, one of which turns out to be Beelzebub himself.
Check it out, yo:
Yeah, I would have bitten Bojana too.
The film, scripted by Brian Nelson, is based on a short story by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) and is the first in a trio of horror flicks produced by the flash-in-the-pan director. Originally entitled The Night Chronicles: Devil, the title was shorten to Devil when the folks at Universal realized that Shyamalan sucks donkey balls.
Devil stars Bokeem Woodbine (Black Dynamite), Caroline Dhavernas (”Wonderfalls”), Chris Messina (Away We Go), Geoffrey Arend (Bubble Boy), and Bojana Novakovic and her clingy white tank-top.
New York based pranksters Improv Everywhere staged a subway reenactment of the Star Wars scene in which Princess Leia is captured by the Imperial forces and confronted by Sith Lord Darth Vader.
Despite the fact that the NYC subway system is plagued by piss-soaked bums, flashers, thieves, and break dancers, commuters on the 6 train appear to be genuinely surprised by the stunt and thrilled to see it end without anyone being mugged or stabbed in the throat.
Watch the clip you must:
Said a spokesperson for the troupe:
The white walls and sliding doors on the train reminded us of the rebel ship from the movie, and we thought it would be fun to see how people would react to a surprise appearance by the iconic characters. We spread out the actors along the train line, staging it so they would enter the right car at the right time.
Hmm. I once attempted to reenact a scene from The Taking of Pelham 123 on a NY subway and, boy, did it not go well.
