The Emma Tammi-directed “Five Nights at Freddy’s” finds a new security guard named Mike (Josh Hutcherson) trying to survive the night after the cute, yet disturbing, animatronic characters of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a once-successful Chuck E. Cheese-like pizzeria, come to life to wreck havoc on him and the restaurant.
The film adaptation from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions also stars Elizabeth Lail, Piper Rubio, Mary Stuart Masterson and Matthew Lillard, among others.
Despite its day-and-date release on Peacock, the horror movie is positioned for an impressive opening weekend in theaters with projections aimed to at least $50 million. However, it may gain more box office money with positive reviews from film critics and good word-of-mouth from general audiences.
Available on Peacock, you can stream “Five Night’s at Freddy’s” starting at $5.99 per month for a subscription.
