This Halloween, Freddy and the gang are dying to meet you. Five Nights At Freddy’s will be in theaters and streaming on Peacock October 27th, 2023. We’re all waiting to see if this film continues the recent box office success of game-to-movie adaptations, but it turns out the film has already been a boon for NBC Universal.

Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum is the one who landed the rights to a Five Nights at Freddy’s film adaptation, and not surprisingly, it ended up being one of the more expensive productions for the studio. The film cost $20 million to make, and the bulk of this went to the intricate animatronics built by Jim Henson Studios.

While Five Night’s at Freddy’s cost Blumhouse $20 million to make, it appears it was money well spent. In an interview with Fortune, Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum revealed that the film has already turned a profit above $20 million thanks to streaming and theatrical rights. We don’t know how much more the movie has made off those deals, but if the studio is already in the green before the theatrical and streaming release, it’s going to be all profit from here on out!

Maybe there really is hope for more than one movie?

Blumhouse is typically good at turning a profit on lower-budget movies.

I didn't know Jim Henson's studio did the animatronics for the movie. That's pretty fun.
