New ‘FNAF’ Character Revealed
The new information states that Josh Hutcherson’s Mike Schmidt will be teaming up with a teenager that goes by the name “Home Sammon”, with both Schmidt and Sammon having to survive the treacherous animatronics, aka Freddy Fazbear and his fellow animatronic killers.
This character has not yet been announced by the cast and crew of Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, however, it could be safe to assume that “Home Sammon” could just be a nickname for Kat Conner Sterling’s character, Max, an already confirmed character.

Sterling may not be a teenager anymore, but the actress is in her mid-20s as of writing this article, and this wouldn’t be the first time that somebody in that age range has played a late-aged teenager in a Hollywood project such as this.
Is Vanessa A Villain In Blumhouse’s FNAF?
Another notable detail revealed in this new synopsis is the fact that Elizabeth Lail’s Vanessa in the movie will have “treacherous intentions” that Hutcherson’s Mike Schmidt will have to navigate around while surviving the never-ending pursuit of Freddy Fazbear and his fellow animatronics.
It also states that Vanessa will be a “mysterious new employee”, potentially confirming that she will be a security guard like Hutcherson’s character, a detail that was recently reported via another synopsis reveal, with this new synopsis stating the fact more clearly.

First Blumhouse FNAF Trailer Coming Soon?
With all of this new information added to the fact that the first trailer for Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s was recently rated, with a reported runtime of around 1 minute long, it’s safe to assume that the studio plan on dropping the first teaser for the movie any day now.
The movie itself releases in just over 5 months as of writing this article, another worthy factor to consider when theorizing how much longer Blumhouse intend to wait before truly kicking off the marketing campaign for their live-action adaptation of the massively popular video game series entitled the same name, you can watch the first trailer inside here as soon as it drops.
