Fortnite Will Show Inception for the First Movie Night
Epic Games is making good on its promise to have some rather exciting live events happen in Fortnite Season 3. This weekend will be the first-ever movie night in the game with a Fortnite Inception showing that will happen this weekend across a few different times in the U.S.
First Fortnite Movie Night Announced
The announcement of the first-ever Fortnite movie night was revealed on the official Epic Games blog and detailed what players can expect from this momentous occasion as the game dabbles in some previously unexplored territory when showing off an entire film in the game.
For the first movie night, it will be a Fortnite Inception showing, or at least, for some countries. Navigating the complex task of allowing an entire movie to be viewed legally and entirely within the confines of Fortnite is a difficult objective and one that came with some caveats.
For some countries around the world, a different film will be shown off than Inception while there are some countries where Fortnite is available where no movie night will happen at all this weekend. Fortunately, a vast majority of the countries will have their first movie night but varies from place to place.
For instance, in the U.S, the Fortnite Inception movie showing will happen this weekend with a few different showings to allow players to watch it at the time that works best for them. On the other hand, some countries only have one showing or none at all.
Event Will Happen in Party Royale
If you are interested in finding the full schedule for every single country out there and see if your location is available for watching one of these Fortnite movie night premieres, head to this link and see everything happening this weekend.
But for the most part, all of the action will happen this weekend on Friday night, June 26, around most of the world where Fortnite is available on all platforms. The Fortnite Inception movie night will happen within the confines of Party Royale, the recently released non-violent game mode.
In that game mode, players can join 24/7, play through mini games, hang out with friends, explore the little island there, and have a relaxing time that isn’t focused on victory royales, surviving through the storm, building, and all of that.
Instead, you can come here, hang out, and have a chill time, so it makes perfect sense that the first official Fortnite movie night would happen there. Regardless of where you are located, though, so long as your country can have a movie night, you are guaranteed to watch one of three Christopher Nolan films.
What Movies Will Be Shown Around the World
Those films are Inception, Batman Begins and The Prestige, depending on where you are playing the game. In the U.S. and other countries like Japan, you will be able to watch Inception this weekend, while other places like the U.K. will have The Prestige instead.
The actual schedule for the U.S. this weekend is that players will have access to three separate showings that will premiere Inception in Fortnite Party Royale. The first one will kick off on Friday, oddly enough, at 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET).
Yes, you read that correctly. The first showing of the movie will happen at that time. You might be wondering why the first showing is so early. We couldn’t answer that for you, but it may have to do with the server syncing up with some of the other premieres in other places like Japan.
However, given that each country is supposed to be different, it does seem odd that the showing is happening this early, but for those of you who have an early shift or graveyard shift, this might be a great occasion for you to enjoy the film premiere.
Movie Schedule for Inception Showings in the U.S.
However, that is only one of three showings in the U.S. for Inception in Fortnite. The second one will happen at a more palatable time for players in North America as it will take place 12 hours later at 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET).
Then, there will be a third and final movie showing that will happen at 8:55 p.m. PT for those on the West Coast to enjoy it, but we aren’t sure why it isn’t starting at 9 p.m., though. As far as we know, these showings will only happen on Friday night and won’t go through the entire weekend.
But if that isn’t enough for you, there is another live event in Party Royale this weekend. There will be yet another live concert event that will happen. It will take place Thursday, June 25, at 6 p.m. PT and again on Monday, June 29 at 9 a.m. PT.
Thomas Wesley will hold that live concert with special guest appearances from Young Thug and Noah Cyrus. A lot is going on this weekend in Fortnite in terms of live events. There will likely be more events that will happen in the future like this one.
We already heard about Christopher Nolan’s newest movie shown in Fortnite for free, but we have yet to hear more about that. This showing is likely a test for that event in the future where players will be able to see a brand new movie for free like they are going to the movies but at home and with their friends digitally.
