Gear up for some Freddy Frights! Universal Pictures is back with a fresh trailer for the much-awaited big screen adaptation of the cult-favorite video game, Five Nights at Freddy’s. This time, we’re not just taking a sentimental stroll through the iconic eatery that was all the rage back in the day. Nope, the new trailer sets out to remind you—this is a bone-chilling horror flick through and through. The main characters find themselves on the edge of peril as they work to unravel the chilling secrets tucked away within the restaurant’s creaky walls.
In this retelling of the 2014 viral hit, our man Mike (played by Josh Hutcherson) is on the job hunt. After striking out for what feels like forever, he casts his net wide, landing him at none other than the infamous Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Here, William Afton (Matthew Lillard, folks!) is eager to hire him for the late-night security detail. If the restaurant’s dilapidated and long-deserted atmosphere wasn’t creepy enough, things escalate quickly as Mike discovers he’s not the sole occupant of the place. The show-stopping animatronic band was always the centerpiece, after all.
Meet the notorious quartet: Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy. You’ll find them lurking behind the musty curtains of the stage. But their backstory is way darker than you might expect. Just as in the video games that blew up the internet back in the day, Freddy’s had to shut its doors after a string of unsettling child disappearances. The law enforcement hit a dead end, unable to find any trace of the missing kids, paving the way for Mike’s fateful employment years later.

Spring Bonnie Takes Center Stage
The inaugural trailer gave us a sneak peek at Spring Bonnie, but the second one brings him fully into the spotlight. Vanessa (Elizabeth Lail, keep up!) is on hand to give Mike the heads-up about this yellow-suited menace. While the original games suggest this character had a hand in the vanished kiddos, it’s still up in the air how the minds behind Blumhouse and Universal Pictures will weave this thread into their modern-day narrative. Mike may be in over his head, grappling with a past that predates his existence. But like it or not, he’s going to have to get his act together before he or his sister become the next victims.
