Animatronics attack in new trailer for Five Nights at Freddy’s

This Halloween, the video game sensation, Five Nights at Freddy’s, is getting its own horror movie, courtesy of Universal Pictures and Blumhouse. The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson is headlining the film as Mike Schmidt, the hapless security guard from the first game who takes a job at a long-defunct restaurant, Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Think of it as Chuck E. Cheese, if the old animatronics were out to kill you after dark. Unfortunately for Mike, the first trailer for the film reveals that Freddy and his fiendish friends have an even deadlier agenda than he imagined.

The video makes it clear that Mike took this job out of financial desperation, which is also why he is taking his daughter, Abby Schmidt (Piper Rubio), to work. This turns out to be a spectacularly bad decision once the mythology behind Freddy’s is revealed. Apparently, the animatronics are possessed by the spirits of dead kids who were killed decades ago. Now Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy want Abby to be the latest addition to their band.

Assuming that this story goes the way of other horror movies, Mike is going to have to embrace his inner action hero in order to save himself and his daughter. Fortunately, Mike may also have some allies among the living as well, because he’s going to need them.

Elizabeth Lail also stars in the film alongside Kat Conner Sterling, Mary Stuart Masterson, Matthew Lillard, Lucas Grant, Jessica Blackmore, and CoryxKenshin.

Emma Tammi directed the adaptation from a script she co-wrote with Scott Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback. Five Nights at Freddy’s will haunt theaters on October 27.

Idris Elba takes on a killer lion in new trailer for Beast
Idris Elba on a radio in Beast.

It looks like Jurassic World: Dominion won't be Universal Pictures' only summer film that features killer animals. In the first trailer for Beast, Idris Elba's Dr. Nate Daniels comes face-to-face with a murderous lion. And this big cat simply won't be placated, even though neither Nate nor his family have ever done anything to provoke it.

The trailer also introduces Sharlto Copley's Martin Battles, a good friend of the Daniels family. Nate took his teenage girls back to South Africa in an attempt to emotionally reconnect to them after their mother's death. Unfortunately, the Daniels family and Martin soon find themselves fighting for their lives. Not even hiding in a car can protect them from this bloodthirsty lion. But the king of the jungle has good reasons to hate all humans. Unfortunately, that means it's kill or be killed if Nate and his family hope to survive.

Have you ever noticed that there's not an abundance of LGBT romantic comedies? Oh, to be sure, there have almost always been gay best friends, as well as gay and lesbian relationships among the side characters. But for films with LGBT leading characters, only the independent movie studios went for those stories ... until now. Billy Eichner took it upon himself to change that trend, and it's happening with Bros, a new LGBT romantic comedy that he co-wrote with director Nicholas Stoller, with the full backing of producer Judd Apatow and Universal Pictures.

The newest trailer for Jurassic World Dominion is asking the important questions, like "Can a dinosaur truly be adorable?" or "Shouldn't the child of Blue be called Green?" Regardless, the bigger questions after this trailer are "Who stole Baby Blue? And what do they want with her?" Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) had better find out fast, because with Baby Blue gone in the wind, Momma Blue is no longer his best friend. The bond between Owen and the raptor named Blue was a key part of the last two films. But now, Blue is having some trust issues.
