Inception Headlines Fortnite's First Movie Night This Friday

Inception Headlines Fortnite's First Movie Night This Friday

Just like Nolan dreamed it would.

We knew a while back that Christopher Nolan would be bringing one of his films to Fortnite Battle Royale at some point. Today, Epic confirmed that Inception, or one of two other Nolan films depending on your region, would be the first full-length feature film shown in Fortnite.

It airs this Friday, June 26, and there are three different films airing depending on your region: Batman Begins, The Prestige, and Inception. Everyone in the U.S. will be watching Inception this Friday for example, while everyone in the U.K. will be watching The Prestige at various times. You can find out which film is showing in your region at the official Fortnite website.

So you can sit back, relax, likely destroy everything in the environment around you, and watch Christopher Nolan's Inception this Friday. It's just what the noted defender of cinema would have wanted.

The limited-time screening of Nolan's films will all take place in Fortnite's Party Royale mode. If you're unfamiliar with the mode, it's a pretty experimental mode where players can't equip weapons, and also can't die, meaning you'll have a considerably less paranoid time watching the film here than you would in the Battle Royale mode.

Nolan's movies aren't the only thing being showcased in the Party Royale mode this week though. Musician Thomas Wesley, a.k.a. Diplo, will be putting on a virtual concert for everyone in the mode at specific times with special guests Young Thug and Noah Cyrus. This likely won't be quite on the same scale as a mind-bending Travis Scott concert from earlier this year, but more along the lines of Marshmello's in-game concert from early 2019 or the Diplo's previous Fortnite appearance.
