Five Nights at Freddy’s star Josh Hutcherson has admitted to missing movies like Oppenheimer in cinemas due to his obsession with Fortnite. Here’s more on what they said.

Over the last several years, Fortnite has exploded in popularity, becoming a cultural phenomenon in its own right. Players are captivated by the Battle Royale title, which has a significant popularity, due to its frequent collaborations with prominent media such as films, anime, video games, and more.

Hollywood stars like Josh Hutcherson (from Five Nights at Freddy’s) and Zack Snyder seem to have joined the ranks of the game’s many professional and casual gamers and have publicly expressed their love for the Epic Games title.

Hutcherson’s FNAF movie emerged to be an instant hit among fans.

In a recent live interview for his new film The Beekeeper, Hutcherson revealed their obsession with Fortnite. Furthermore, he reportedly confessed that he did not watch Oppenheimer since he exclusively played Fortnite during his free time.

Actor Josh Hutcherson recently made an appearance at Joshua Horowitz’s live interview show where the two had a chat about the former’s recent two film outings, FNAF and The Beekeeper. During the interview, Hutcherson spoke about how he researched the FNAF fanbase and the game before acting in the movie and how he’s fond of video games.

When Horowitz asked him if he’s seen Oppenheimer, Maestro, Past Lives, and other phenomenal movies nominated during the ongoing award season, Hutcherson admitted he hasn’t gotten around to watching them. He added, “I haven’t seen any of those films and it might be because of Fortnite. I live under a rock. I just stare at walls (in my free time) and play Fortnite.”

Several fans of the actor and Fortnite player base alike were shocked as they believed they might have encountered the actor in a Battle Royale match sometime. One such fan said, “Imagine getting boxed and griddyed on by Josh Hutcherson.”

Another chimed in, “I wonder if I’ve ever played randoms with him.” A third user added, “Mans needs to put down Fortnite and catch up on some fine cinema.” A fourth one commented, “We need a Collab between him and Fortnite.”

While the community can’t be amused enough by Hutcherson dropping Fortnite as the main reason behind his backlog of films he needs to watch, they ended up dropping yet another Whistle meme in the comment section.
