The Fortnite Risky Reels movie theatre is about to become a hotbed of activity. Fortnite Season 4 saws players partake in many weeks of challenges to create a “Blockbuster movie” from their matches in the hopes of winning some exclusive goodies. Given the earth-shattering popularity of Fortnite Battle Royale, winning a movie-making contest is bound to make your film a true blockbuster. Now, things have gotten rolling. The lights, camera, action portion has been completed and it’s time to take your seat, grab some popcorn, and watch the whole thing unfold. Here’s how to watch the Fortnite Risky Reels movie.
Fortnite Risky Reels Movie: What is it and How to Watch
The contest that played out over the course of Fortnite Season 4 was won by a player named Janthony with a movie called “Prepare for Collision”. Not only did they win a massive 25,000 V-Bucks prize pool, but you’ll get to see their film in a very special place from now on.
Despite the importance of video sharing platforms like Twitch and YouTube in the Fortnite age, having your own work displayed in the game that you love is probably a bigger prospect for fans. For Janthony, that dream has become a reality. With today’s patch, you can view the winning movie not from the safety of an in-game menu, but as a movie screened to every player on the map. How so? The magic of cinema and the Risky Reels movie theatre!
There’s a lot of history at Risky Reels, and it’s only fitting for a big movie premiere and screening to take place on its newly repaired screen.
Mosey on down to the drive-in cinema, grab some popcorn, sit down for the ride, and hope whoever else comes along doesn’t cut the movie short. If you haven’t paid much attention to the Risky Reels movie theatre before, you’ll find east of Lazy Links and north-west of Wailing Woods along the H2 coordinate. Depending on when you last visited the complex, it may look a little different.
During the world-shattering events of Season 4, Risky Reels was bombarded by the famous falling meteor, knocking the movie projector out of commission. As of patch 5.1, however, things are back to normal with the projector frequently beaming the Season 4 winner’s movie onto a crisp screen. Those who need to fend for themselves will even find a boat-load of new chest spawns on the cars that adorn the location. Even the crater left behind by the meteor has been patched up.

Having your name up in lights and your movie immortalized in the game you love is a big deal for any Fortnite player. But if you’re not the kind to go out of your way to view a community member’s piece of work, there are other ways to watch it; like YouTube. Everyone who took part in the contest had to host their video entry somewhere, and you’ll still find Janthony’s winning clip on the popular page. So if you’re worried about making your way down to Risky Reels just to get shot (as the location name might suggest), then just click the video we’ve embedded above. It’s undoubtedly safer.
