A long-anticipated treat is finally in store for Five Nights at Freddy’s enthusiasts, thanks to a sneak peek into the Emma Tammi-directed project (famed for The Wind). Hot on the heels of the eagerly awaited trailer launch, a series of behind-the-scenes photos offer an exclusive glimpse of Justin Michael Terry getting into character as Freddy Fazbear. The images depict Terry literally stepping into the shoes of the animatronic homicidal bear, with one shot featuring his head peeking through Freddy’s mouth. The character, intricately crafted by the talented team at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, has been painstakingly adapted from the video game for the silver screen, with no detail overlooked.

Five Nights at Freddy’s, with Terry suiting up, boasts an ensemble cast, including Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Matthew Lillard (Scream), Mary Stuart Masterton (Fried Green Tomatoes), Piper Rubio (Unstable), Elizabeth Lail (You), and Kat Conner Sterling (A Week Away). Past trailers and sneak peeks have offered glimpses of the menacing animatronic inhabitants of the pizzeria and the human characters trapped in their vicious world. Yet, these intimate behind-the-scenes photos highlight the painstaking attention to detail and commitment that went into creating every aspect of Freddy’s costume.
Five Nights at Freddy’s joins the ranks of video games getting their narrative adaptations, following the likes of Uncharted and The Last of Us. Other titles such as Twisted Metal and Fallout are set to follow suit. In the film, Hutcherson takes on the role of Mike Schmidt, the fresh-faced night guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, who finds himself living a nightmarish reality as the animatronic characters spring to life and unleash chaos. To survive, Mike delves into the establishment’s past, only to discover increasingly unsettling tales.
