It surpasses Halloween Ends, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Bel-Air and The Best Man: The Final Chapters for the honor, according to NBCUniversal.
The company is also touting Five Nights at Freddy’s as the most-watched entertainment title across all genres since its debut and the biggest opening ever for a film on Peacock through five days.
As is typical, NBCUniversal did not release actual data to support this. The film may appear on the Nielsen streaming charts next month, depending on how well it holds up against other streaming properties in its first few weeks.
The film follows Mike (Josh Hutcherson), a troubled young man caring for his 10-year-old sister Abby (Piper Rubio), and haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his younger brother more than a decade before. Recently fired and desperate for work so that he can keep custody of Abby, Mike agrees to take a position as a night security guard at an abandoned theme restaurant: Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. But Mike soon discovers that nothing at Freddy’s is what it seems. With the aid of Vanessa, a local police officer (Elizabeth Lail), Mike’s nights at Freddy’s will lead him into unexplainable encounters with the supernatural and drag him into the black heart of an unspeakable nightmare.
From Blumhouse and Universal Pictures, Five Nights at Freddy’s is executive produced by Beatriz Sequeira, Ryan Turek, Christopher H. Warner, Russell Binder, and Marc Mostman. It is based on the video game by Scott Cawthon, who also penned the screenplay with Seth Cuddeback and Emma Tammi. Tammi directed the film.
