A month after Fortnite premiered a trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film, Tenet, the director is heading back to the game with a full-length feature. On Friday, June 26 Fortnite players will be treated to an in-game movie night featuring one of three Christopher Nolan movies.

The three movies will be Batman Begins, Inception, and The Prestige. The movie available to watch will vary depending on which region you play Fortnite in. Players in the United States will have showings of Inception starting on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET, with a second showing at 11:55 p.m. ET. Meanwhile, players in Canada and the United Kingdom will get to see The Prestige at 12 p.m. ET. For more information on which regions will get which movies, you can check the Fortnite Party Royale website.

The event, which will be called Movie Nite, will take place at Fortnite’s new Party Royale island on the big screen. Just like some of the recent concerts in Fortnite, players should be able to jump in and out of the movie at any time as the movie continues, so if you want to catch the beginning you’ll need to be there right when it starts.

This will be the first time that Fortnite has moved from trailers to showing full movies, however, with Epic’s many partnerships, from DC and Warner Bros. to Marvel and Disney, Movie Nites could become a regular attraction in Fortnite, especially with real-world theaters still struggling to reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
