It seems relatively obvious based on recent events that Fortnite has very little interest in being a video game at this point. Being a virtual movie theater, though, that seems to still be in the cards. The newest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet recently premiered not in the (almost universally closed) movie theaters, but in Fortnite. And that’s just the start, as another one of the director’s films is apparently going to be showing in the game’s special Party Royale hub.
The specific film to be shown has not yet been announced, especially as Nolan has a variety of films likely suitable for viewing by players within Fortnite’s age rating. It’s almost certainly not going to be Tenet, which as of yet has not announced a change from a release date of July 17th. Then again, we live in a world wherein Fortnite has premiered a new trailer and is basically acting as a virtual theater space for a movie, so it could probably be anything at this point.
