The first official trailer for Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s movie which is set to release later this year has reportedly been rated, with the runtime also being revealed to be much shorter than the leaked footage that found its way to the web before being swiftly removed by the studio.
According to a recent trailer rating from a website known as Consumer Protection BC for the first Five Nights at Freddy’s trailer, which is listed as “TRAILER #1”, the duration will be a mere 46 seconds long, around two minutes shorter than the leaked trailer.

Could This Just Be The FNAF Teaser Trailer?
One explanation could be that this rating is either for a teaser trailer, which would be most likely or for a shortened version of the full trailer, which could also be likely, as both marketing methods are used by large movie studios for all movie projects.
Universal Pictures isn’t typically known for releasing short 40-50 second long teasers for their large titles, with many of their recent projects diving straight into a full official trailer as opposed to the teaser then trailer tactic as seen by many other studios.
Although it’s hard to say at this point in time as to what this rated runtime will be for, besides the fact that it states it is definitely for the FNAF trailer, it’s safe to assume that the release date for the official trailer is right around the corner, just as it has been speculated for various weeks now.
This has yet to be confirmed by the cast and crew of Blumhouse’s live-action adaptation of the popular video game series known as Five Nights at Freddy’s, if true, an official announcement will be expected to be released soon.
