The Five Nights At Freddy’s blows past a major box office milestone worldwide, while becoming only the second 2023 horror movie to do it.
This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.
- Five Nights at Freddy’s movie surpasses $200 million mark, with international viewership driving its box office success.
- Domestic viewership has stagnated because the movie’s availability on Peacock has shrunken domestic box office opportunities.
- Five Nights at Freddy’s becomes the second horror movie in 2023 to reach this milestone, behind The Nun II.
The Five Nights at Freddy’s is still achieving box office milestones, thanks to some overseas support. Based on the popular video game series by Scott Cawthon, the movie follows security guard Mike Schmidt (Josh Hutcherson) as he begins his career at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. With deadly animatronics surrounding him, Schmidt struggles to survive to escape in the morning.
While the domestic viewership has stagnated with only $64 million across every box office movie this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Five Nights at Freddy‘s is still succeeding worldwide. Because domestic viewers are watching Five Nights on Peacock, Five Nights just passed its $200 million mark largely thanks to those international viewers. It has become only the second horror movie of 2023 to secure the honor after The Nun II brought in $265.9 million. Five Nights is currently sitting at $217.1 million and is poised to earn more.
