[News] FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S is Biggest Blumhouse Global Opening of All Time

Sometimes the power of a popular game can move mountains. It was reported over the weekend that FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S is officially the biggest global opening of all time for Blumhouse ahead of Halloween. Taking in $91.8 Million over the weekend, this adaptation has won the hearts of audiencegoers.

This marked the highest-grossing opening weekend for Blumhouse, surpassing David Gordon Green‘s Halloween, which took in $76.22 Million on its opening weekend. The success of the opening weekend also makes FNAF the 19th Blumhouse film to open in first place at the domestic box office. This brings Blumhouse Productions’ total domestic box office intake to more than $3 Billion.

Oh, wait. There’s more. With the FNAF numbers, this marks the highest opening for any PG-13 horror film, surpassing The Mummy Returns at $63.139 Million. Just this year, it also made the biggest original Horror opening, with the second biggest Horror opening just being The Nun II.

Last, but most importantly, FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S marks the biggest opening for a horror film directed by a woman. In her third Blumhouse project, director Emma Tammi leads the way big-time here. Hopefully, this opens more doors for women at Blumhouse, but also at other studios for horror film projects. Don’t just pat yourself on the back for this statistic, studios.

FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S is now available in theaters and is streaming on Peacock.
