Five Nights at Freddy’s to Debut in Theaters and On Peacock This October

Five Nights at Freddy’s is ready to scare up the Halloween season in both theaters and on Peacock. Universal Pictures has announced a simultaneous release for the Blumhouse-produced adaptation of the popular horror video game series, setting an October 27th date for both a theatrical bow and a debut on the studio’s streaming service.

Producer Jason Blum, a prolific presence on Twitter, took to the platform Wednesday evening to make an announcement of the release date minus the simultaneous Peacock debut.

Universal is no stranger to the day-and-date horror release as it will mark the third time the studio has set a hybrid debut for a Blumhouse production in October. Previously, both Halloween Kills (2021) and Halloween Ends (2022) released on Peacock and in theaters.

Universal has also had success with day-and-date Peacock releases for DreamWorks Animation sequel The Boss Baby: Family Business and the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy Marry Me.

Directed by Emma Tammi and based on the video game franchise, Five Nights at Freddy’s follows a security guard who experiences a series of terrors at the pizza joint he’s taken the night shift at. The film stars Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Lail, Piper Rubio, Kat Conner Sterling, Mary Stuart Masterson and Matthew Lillard, as well as animatronic designs and technology by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s is produced by Blum and Scott Cawthon. Executive producers include Bea Sequeira, Russell Binder and Christopher H. Warner. The film is produced by Blumhouse, in association with Striker Entertainment.
