Update: The leaked FNAF trailer has since been removed by NBC Universal, who blocked it on "copyright grounds." This latest action possibly confirms the leak's authenticity ahead of the film's October 2023 release date.

The long-awaited film adaptation of the popular video game series, Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) has experienced yet another twist in its tumultuous development journey. A leaked trailer has surfaced online, giving eager fans a sneak peek into what the movie has in store. Though we cannot confirm the authenticity of the leaked trailer, it appears to feature Josh Hutcherson as the protagonist, Mike Schmidt, a security guard who unwittingly takes on a nightmare-inducing night shift at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.

Directed by Emma Tammi, the FNAF movie boasts a talented cast, including Matthew Lillard as William Afton, Elizabeth Lail as Vanessa, Mary Stuart Masterson as the Female Villain, Kat Conner Sterling as Max, and Piper Rubio as Abby. The leaked trailer showcases Hutcherson's character monitoring the CCTV cameras at Freddy's, only to discover the animatronics springing to life and terrorizing the establishment. The film also seems to expand beyond the confines of the pizzeria, delving into the dark lore behind the origins of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.

Five Nights at Freddy's is expected to release ahead of Halloween this year but was originally announced back in 2015, facing numerous delays due to creative differences between the studio and the game's creator, Scott Cawthon. In particular, this includes several scripts being scrapped before production began after Cawthon reportedly insisted on giving his full approval. The project also saw many key figures depart over the years, further complicating its development. Cawthon's eventual exit from the gaming industry in 2021 later raised questions about the film's future, although it seems Cawthon remained actively involved in the movie's production.

While lacking in quality and substance, the leaked FNAF trailer at least offers a glimpse of what could potentially be the character Springtrap, an animatronic that first appeared in the third installment of the game series. This suggests that the film may draw from multiple titles in the franchise. Though the legitimacy of the leaked trailer remains uncertain (update: NBC Universal removed the trailer, supporting the trailer's legitimacy), it undeniably provides a tantalizing preview of the Five Nights at Freddy's movie. Fans of the game series will surely be on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the film's official release, which has been years in the making.
