Epic Games’ battle royale hit Fortnite is hosting a Christopher Nolan-themed movie night on Friday, offering scheduled screenings of Inception, Batman Begins or The Prestige.
Dubbed Movie Night at Party Royale’s Big Screen, the event is described by the video game publisher and developer as a test that will allow viewers to choose their participating country to see available showtimes. The films will be shown in their full length.
“Navigating distribution rights for different countries and languages for full movies is challenging,” said Epic Games in a statement. “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.”
Epic then offered a reminder for viewers. “And 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.”
