Fortnite Movie Nite event start time is fast approaching, with the Party Royale mode set to host free showings of three movies from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan. Last month the latest trailer for The Dark Knight director’s next film – Tenet – debuted in Party Royale, and today Fortnite will play host to another Nolan event. Fortnite will be holding free showings of three of Nolan’s best films – Inception, Batman Begins and The Prestige.

Which film you get to watch in Fortnite without paying a penny depends on the region you’re in.

If you’re in the UK you’ll be able to watch The Prestige – starring Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall and Michael Caine – for free.

While if you’re in the US you can watch Inception – starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine – for free.

And if you’re in countries like India and Chile you can watch Batman Begins – starring Christian Bale, Liam Neeson and (you guessed it) Michael Caine – for free.

For fans in the UK, you will be able to watch The Prestige from 6pm UK time on Friday June 25.

The Fortnite Movie Nite event was detailed in a post on the game’s official website.

In it Epic Games said: “Grab the popcorn! This Friday, June 26 we’re testing Movie Nite at Party Royale’s Big Screen. We’re offering limited screenings of one of three different Christopher Nolan classic full-length feature films — either Inception, Batman Begins, or The Prestige — directly in Fortnite.

“Navigating distribution rights for different countries and languages for full movies is challenging. As part of this first test, we wanted as many people to experience Movie Nite as possible. The film you’ll be able to watch will depend on your country, and unfortunately we couldn’t reach everyone with these screenings.

“We believe the idea of getting together with your friends and family at Party Royale to watch a movie is powerful and exciting, and we’re looking at ways to increase global participation in the future.”

The Fortnite makers added that you will be able to enable subtitles for the movie airing in your region.

To do so activate subtitles in the audio settings section of the Fortnite menu.

Epic Games also added: “Remember, just like any theatre – there’s no broadcasting or recording these films during the show. So, make sure your crew is there live! Any streams or videos of these films will be subject to anti-piracy and DCMA regulations.”
