Rotten Tomatoes has unveiled an exclusive look at Blumhouse’s upcoming ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s‘ movie. Universal Pictures will release the film in theaters and on Peacock in the United States on October 27, 2023. See the image below.
Directed by Emma Tammi and co-written by her, Scott Cawthon, and Seth Cuddeback, with a story by Cawthon, the movie is produced by Blumhouse Productions and Striker Entertainment. It’s based on Cawthon’s video game franchise of the same name, and he’s also a producer alongside Jason Blum.
The film follows Mike (Josh Hutcherson; Ultraman, The Hunger Games franchise) a troubled young man caring for his 10-year-old sister Abby (Piper Rubio; Holly & Ivy, Unstable), and haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his younger brother more than the decade before. Recently fired and desperate for work so that he can keep custody of Abby, Mike agrees to take a position as a night security guard at an abandoned theme restaurant: Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. But Mike soon discovers that nothing at Freddy’s is what it seems. With the aid of Vanessa, a local police officer (Elizabeth Lail; You, Mack & Rita), Mike’s nights at Freddy’s will lead him into unexplainable encounters with the supernatural and drag him into the black heart of an unspeakable nightmare.
The film also stars Mary Stuart Masterson (Blindspot, Fried Green Tomatoes), as Mike’s icy Aunt Jane; Kat Conner Sterling (We Have a Ghost, 9-1-1) as Abby’s caring babysitter, Max; and Matthew Lillard (Good Girls, Scream) as Steve Raglan, Mike’s smug career counselor.
