The night shift isn't over yet, as a live-action Five Nights at Freddy's movie promises to bring those rogue robots to life as the latest video game adaptation. As we head toward the movie's October 2023 release date, the Five Nights at Freddy's trailer has leaked early.

We first stepped inside Freddy Fazbear's Pizza back in 2014 for a pretty humble point-and-click adventure. Since then, the Five Nights at Freddy's name has boomed into a survival horror franchise for the ages. A movie adaptation has been in the works since 2015, and now, we're closer than ever.

As the home of horror, Blumhouse is steering the ship for the Five Nights at Freddy's movie, which recently released a first-look image to tease what's on the way. Now, the trailer has dropped ahead of time, which has led to backlash from series creator, Scott Cawthon.

Explaining his disappointment, Cawthon wrote, "I tried to ignore it and enjoy my day, but I was really, really, disheartened. I know that Blumhouse and Universal (and me too) have all worked very hard to make something really exciting to share." 

He went on to thank fans and those who are refusing to do YouTube videos on the leak. Then, again, you don't have to search hard on Twitter (you've been warned) to see the trailer in its full glory. Although it doesn't look like a fully finished trailer, it's definitely the real deal. 

Appealing to those curious fans, Cawthon concluded, "For those of you who resisted watching it, I think you'll be much happier when you’re able to see a finished product that is edited and polished, with VFX and proper sounds." Surely, it's only a matter of time until Blumhouse releases the full trailer.

What is the Five Nights at Freddy's movie about?

In the Five Nights at Freddy's movie, The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson stars as Mike Schmidt, a troubled security guard who takes a night-time job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and has to deal with the antagonistic animatronics coming to life.

The legendary Matthew Lillard plays the villainous William Afton, who is the creator of Funtime Animatronics and the main villain of the video games. Finally, the cast is rounded off by Mary Stuart Masterson as an unnamed villain. We're calling it now, we bet she'll be playing Bonnie. 

We're getting some serious M3GAN vibes from the Five Nights at Freddy's trailer, and considering that psychotic Alexa wannabe smashed the box office and quickly got green-lit for a sequel, FNaF could quickly become another franchise. With the trailer leaked, we bet someone's about to get sued into oblivion.
