Apple TV+ Unveils ‘Tetris’ Movie Trailer •

by Ana Lopez

Apple TV+ has the first trailer for his – shall we say, blockbusting – movie “Tetris”, based on the origin story of the popular puzzle video game. The film will premiere at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in March. Apple will then release it worldwide on the streaming service on March 31.

Starring “Black Bird” actor Taron Egerton, who plays American video game salesman Henk Rogers, “Tetris” tells the story of Rogers and his mission to secure the game’s distribution rights.

Rogers travels to the Soviet Union during the end of the Cold War to meet its inventor, Alexey Pajitnov (Nikita Efremov), a Soviet software engineer. However, under communist law, the game belonged to the people of the Soviet Union, so Rogers has to negotiate directly with the Soviet regime to get the rights.

“If he wants to bring the game to the world, he will enter a dangerous web of lies and corruption behind the Iron Curtain,” Apple wrote in the film’s description.

Tetris was founded in 1984 and has since sold more than 520 million units, according to the Tetris Company.
