Tenet, which is currently scheduled to release in mid-July, features John David Washington and Robert Pattinson trying to prevent a world conflict by using time manipulation. We don’t know much else about the movie just yet as Nolan likes to keep his projects under lock and key until closer to release. Nolan’s film could potentially be delayed given the pandemic, but no official announcement has been made by him or Warner Bros.
The premiere will be in Fortnite’s new experimental Party Royale mode, a game type that removes weapons so players can enjoy fun without getting eliminated. It features live entertainment like this movie premiere as well as vehicle obstacle courses and vending machines that dispense paint guns instead of assault rifles.
This trailer premiere is the next in a series of major live events hosted within Fortnite. Everything from a Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer premiere to Travis Scott‘s larger-than-map performance has brought millions of players back into the game. Epic Games most recently held a concert for the launch of Party Royale earlier this month that featured Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5.
The trailer will most likely be available on YouTube sometime after the premiere in Fortnite, but seeing it in-game will be the first official way to experience it.
