In June 2020, when the film Principle was launched, and with most parts of the world locked in, Christopher Nolan said: “This is a film whose image and sound should really be enjoyed in your theaters on big screen “. This statement, coming from Nolan in the midst of a pandemic, really shocked YouTuber Bob Wulff, who runs the WulffDen channel. So, “out of spite”, Wulff decided that “we have to put this on a Game Boy immediately”. He acknowledges that this is “quite possibly the worst way to look at Principle .” ” 

Wulff divided the film into five Game Boy Advance cartridges. He even made personalized labels for each of these cartridges.

  YouTuber split the Tenet movie into five Game Boy Advance cartridges to experience it in the worst possible way

Bob Wulff created personalized labels for each of Tenet’s cartridges.

Film split across multiple cartridges isn’t the worst. It had to compress the video at six frames per second with a resolution of 192 x 128 and a massive bit rate of 8 KB / s. Also, the software he used to overwrite video accelerated third party video by default.

Also, keep in mind that when you watch this on the Game Boy, the dialogue already heard to hear would be much worse on a Game Boy Advance speaker.

“The viewing experience on this is absolutely appalling,” Wulff says with startling surprise

The Game Boy Advance also doesn’t support the 3.5mm headphone jack, and if you fast forward the movie, it crashes the ROM.

However, Wulff suggests that this could be a “fun project for smaller videos.” Principe is a two and a half hour film.
