Fortnite to screen entire Christopher Nolan film for free this summer

An entire film directed by Christopher Nolan will be streamed for free on the hit battle royale game Fortnite this summer.

The news was announced during a live in-game premiere of a trailer for Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Tenet.

Geoff Knightley, host of The Games Awards, wrote on Twitter: “ Christopher Nolan is bringing one of his iconic films to @FortniteGame this summer for a full length free screening for fans!”

The screening will take place in the game’s non-violent “Party Royale” mode, as Fortnite continues to diversify beyond its multiplayer shoot-em-up roots.

Fortnite has held a number of non-competitive in-game “events” recently, including a music performance from Travis Scott, and a teaser for Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.
