This has been Freddy’s year–pizza for everyone!
Five Nights at Freddy’s–the film adaptation of the popular horror video game–enjoyed a record-breaking weekend at the box office, according to a report on Deadline.
The feature–directed by Emma Tammi from a screenplay she wrote with game creator Scott Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback–came in second at the domestic box office (after leading the pack its first two weekends) with $9 million, bringing its domestic take so far to $127 million.
And, even more impressively, the film now has earned $252 million worldwide–making it the highest grossing horror pic of the year.
In the film, Mike Schmidt (Josh Hutcherson), a night security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, finds out the hard way that he has a bizarre job. The cuddly-by-day animatronics in the pizza parlor become something quite deadly when the sun goes down.
The rest of the cast includes Matthew Lillard, Mary Stuart Masterson, Elizabeth Lail and Kat Conner Sterling.
