An unfinished version of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie trailer has seemingly leaked online. The heavily watermarked trailer circulated forums and message boards this weekend but were swiftly removed from most platforms sharing the video including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. If you’re keen to check it out, the trailer is still fairly easy to find online, though we won’t be posting links here.
The leaked trailer for the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is still in a rough shape as it doesn’t include any VFX shots or finished touches, meaning it leaked during its early editing phases. It’s unknown when the full trailer will actually release or if this is simply a teaser since the movie is still shooting. Series creator Scott Cawthon responded to the leak, saying he is “really, really disheartened” though commended the community who refused to share it.

Cawthon’s full response to the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie trailer leak reads:
“It’s really difficult, if not impossible, to prevent people from trying to spoil things for everyone else, but it was really encouraging to see the fanbase pull together and push back against it. For those of you who resisted watching it, I think you’ll be much happier when you’re able to see a finished product that is edited and polished, with VFX and proper sounds.”
The live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is currently shooting and scheduled to release sometime later this year. It will star Scream and Scooby-Doo actor Matthew Lillard as the villain William Afton and The Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson as the security guard Mike Schmidt (or as some speculate, William’s son, Michael). It’s based on the series of popular indie horror games involving animatronics that mysteriously come to life at night. The franchise has seen eight mainline releases since 2014.
