The film Five Nights at Freddy’s has now grossed over $200 million at the box office, against a reported budget of $20 million. According to the latest box office figures from Variety, the FNAF film grossed an additional $19.4 million in the United States for its second weekend, helping to push the worldwide figures to over $217 million. .
Most films experience a double-digit drop in box office results after the first weekend, and the FNAF film was no different. Its second-weekend domestic haul of $19.4 million is down 76% from its debut record of $80 million.
Regardless, the FNAF film has now eclipsed $113 million in the United States alone. It’s also worth noting that the FNAF movie actually debuted in theaters. And on Peacock at the same time, which could have played a role in its total box office performance. In fact, Variety cited box office analysts saying that FNAF’s simultaneous theatrical and on-demand rollout definitely dampened the box office numbers for the second weekend in particular.
This may be true, but FNAF is in any case a huge commercial success. It was Blumhouse’s biggest opening weekend, and it’s now the highest-grossing horror film of 2023 after just 10 days in the United States. It beats Scream VI ($108 million), M3gan ($95 million) and The Nun II ($85 million).
The film was directed by Emma Tammi (Into the Dark, The Wind) from a screenplay by Cawthon, Tammi, Seth Cuddeback, Chris Lee Hill and Tyler MacIntyre.
The FNAF movie stars Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo). Jim Henson’s Creature Shop working on the scary animatronics.
