Beginning had its day in theaters and is still played on the big screen in many places around the world. But it’s also available on home video so anyone can watch it from the comfort of their own couch. Or, in one case, a scientifically-made YouTuber decided to put Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster, of all things, on an old Game Boy Advance. Specifically the SP model. He lovingly refers to it as “the worst way to see Beginning. “
The video in question was recently uploaded to the WULFF DEN YouTube channel. The process involved obtaining some flashable Game Boy Advance cartridges so that Beginning It could be printed on those same cartridges and later viewed on the device. The video describes the process in detail. It’s extremely doable for those who might feel included, although it’s quite a bit of work just for a joke at Christopher Nolan’s expense. The host explains where the idea came from and why he did it.
“I had this idea when the whole meme was circulating about how much Christopher Nolan really wanted you to go to theaters to see this movie … He said, I quote, ‘This is a movie whose picture and sound really should be enjoyed in their theaters. on the big screen. ‘So I immediately thought,’ Yeah! We have to put this on a Game Boy right away. ‘
To accomplish this mission, they had to use not one, but five different Game Boy Advance video cartridges. At the time this Nintendo handheld was on the market, mobile video was primitive at best. That really becomes clear when we see the final product. Yes, Beginning it’s technically on the Game Boy Advance, but the video is heavily compressed and choppy. This is the exact opposite of what Christopher Nolan had in mind and that’s certainly the point of the whole thing.
The Game Boy Advance was released by Nintendo in 2001. The SP model shown in the video, which had a flip-up screen, was released a couple of years later in 2003. Overall, the Advance was a huge success for Nintendo. selling more than 80 million units worldwide. It was later superseded by the Nintendo DS, which dominated the portable device market until the Nintendo Switch arrived.
Beginning It was supposed to be Christopher Nolan’s prestigious and ambitious follow-up to his WWII epic. Dunkirk. Arguably yes. But what was designed as a must-see event in theaters was hampered by the near-global closure of cinemas in 2020. However, Nolan insisted that his film come out in the summer. So Warner Bros. released it in August and, unfortunately, it didn’t do enough business to save the movie business. It peaked at $ 363 million worldwide, raising just $ 58 million domestically. Despite a somewhat mixed response from critics and viewers alike, it seems highly likely that Beginning I would have made a lot more money in better circumstances.
