Tetris movie from Apple TV+ drops first trailer prior to release

Have you ever played Tetris (in Russian: Тетрис)? It’s a classic video game, a precursor, a legend. And now, the story behind the game, with all its political nuances, is being brought to life in a film from Apple TV+.

The movie takes inspiration from the incredible story of how a simple game became a global sensation that still captivates players to this day.

Based on a true story, ‘Tetris’ is a Cold War–era thriller on steroids, with double-crossing villains, unlikely heroes and a nail-biting race to the finish

Tetris is a puzzle game released in 1984 that quickly became a worldwide hit, reaching several platforms, including the Game Boy. However, few know the story behind the game.

With the release of the new Apple TV+ movie ‘Tetris’, the true story behind the game is finally being brought to life. This story focuses not on the game’s developer, Alexey Pajitnov, but on Dutch entrepreneur Henk Rogers, who traveled to the Soviet Union in 1989 to resolve a copyright dispute.

Thanks to this dispute, Nintendo was able to obtain the license for Tetris and launch the game to huge success worldwide.

The film features an all-star cast, including Taron Egerton as Henk Rogers, and promises to be an exciting Cold War-era thriller.
