Tetris. We all know it. We’ve all played it. It’s as ubiquitous as breathing at this point in our lives. But where did this game come from? It turns out, Tetris has an incredible tale of intrigue, espionage, violence, and the Soviet Union. And the Tetris movie is here to bring its story to light. We have to say; we didn’t know what to expect going into Tetris‘ trailer. But we were taken on quite the ride.
Check it out:
A release for the Tetris movie shares more about the story. It notes:
“Tetris” tells the unbelievable story of how one of the world’s most popular video games found its way to avid players around the globe. Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) discovers Tetris in 1988, and then risks everything by traveling to the Soviet Union, where he joins forces with inventor Alexey Pajitnov (Nikita Efremov) to bring the game to the masses. 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.
And may we just take a moment for Taron Egerton’s mustache.
Is Tetris the perfect game? We could debate forever. But does Tetris the movie seem like it will be a lot of fun? It certainly does. If you want to watch the movie, Tetris releases on Apple TV+ on March 31.
