Five Nights at Freddy’s fans have been highly eager to find out Blumhouse’s live-action flick’s age rating since its initial announcement. Its US age rating is said to be PG-13 which led fans to expect its UK age rating to be a 12A. However, its official UK age rating has been officially revealed, and it’s higher than its 12A expectations.
As per the British Board of Film Classification aka the BBFC’s official Five Nights at Freddy’s movie listing, the 2023 Blumhouse adaptation has officially received an age rating of 15 for its upcoming United Kingdom theatrical release.
Despite its age rating affecting younger fans for its theatrical release, this is exactly what the FNAF fandom has been dreaming of since Blumhouse announced they were working on an adaptation of the popular and original video game series with the same name.
Can Under 15s Still Watch In The UK?
Blumhouse’s UK age rating for Five Nights at Freddy’s being 15 means that anyone under this age will NOT be able to go see this in theatres.
They can, however, watch at home via its same-day streaming release on Peacock via a Sky TV package or by signing up for Now’s Entertainment Membership for a monthly cost of £9.99.
Although the movie is set to release later this month, Jason Blum/Blumhouse still has plenty in store for fans of the franchise as they plan to attend this year’s New York Comic Con, which we’re also attending and covering live.
It’s safe to expect plenty more teases and promotional content for the upcoming adaptation, along with some potential reveals for Blumhouse’s future plans for the franchise.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 has not yet been officially announced by Blumhouse, however, it is something fans highly anticipate to be revealed sometime in the near future, so stay tuned for that one.
Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s hits theatres and Peacock on October 27, 2023.
