Christopher Nolan‘s new movie Tenet may be arriving in international markets before opening in U.S. movie theaters, but Stateside fans may have another way to enjoy the filmmaker’s latest mind-bending flick. Following up on a previous stunt that saw the new Tenet trailer dropping on Epic Games’ Fortnite, it seems that Nolan & Co. are at it again. Another potential movie Easter egg could be hidden away within the battle royale for fans to find, possibly teasing a bigger event to come.
GamesRadar has the details on this one. Though technically they got at least some of the intel from the following Tweet from journalist Ben Walker:
There is a Tenet easter egg in the secret basement of Steamy Stacks Unit 4. It's possible that either we'll be getting a Tenet crossover in Season 4 or maybe even something to do with the upcoming live event. pic.twitter.com/iXOrVIUkw4

Crank that volume up when you head into this area because the potential Tenet teaser isn’t just a visual mystery, it comes with an audio cue and clue as well. GamesRadar says you should be able to hear a bit of Tenet‘s signature score from Ludwig Göransson (or perhaps just a sampling from the movie’s latest trailer) in this area. Or maybe you won’t hear it at all. Who knows. Either way, the orange suitcase and odd little artifact could be a Tenet Easter egg in disguise, so keep an eye on that location in the days and weeks ahead.
As for the movie itself, here’s the synopsis as we know it so far:
John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.”
Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.
Tenet also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine, Himesh Patel, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson and will arrive in theaters starting August 26th, and in the States over Labor Day weekend.
