Five Nights at Freddy’s debuted at No. 1 in North America over the weekend, earning $78 million in receipts this weekend. The film is also streaming on Peacock.
The film, directed by Emma Tammi, stars Josh Hutcherson as a washed-up security guard who takes a job safeguarding a long-shuttered family-themed pizza restaurant — however, the pizzeria’s giant animatronic animal characters spring to life and go on murderous rampages. He’s also trying to maintain sole custody of his 10-year-old sister (Piper Rubio) and prevent her from falling into the clutches of their Aunt Jane (Mary Stuart Masterson). Kat Conner Sterling and Matthew Lillard also star, with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop created the animatronic characters.
Coming in at No. 2 is Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, followed by Killers of the Flower Moon at No. 3, After Death at No. 4 and The Exorcist: Believer at No. 5.
