The game you couldn’t put down, the story you couldn’t make up. Apple TV+ reveal the official Trailer for Tetris the ‘perfect game’, especially if your Taron Egerton.

After the chaos of the pandemic we still have several films delayed, still to be released. Jon S.Baird‘s film is one of them with Apple also it’s new home. We are stoked to see this trailer as Glasgow, Prestwick and Aberdeen all filming locations.

Egerton is Henk Rogers the businessman who risked everything by heading to the Soviet Union. Discovering the highly addictive game in 1988 and out smarted the KGB to unveil the game to the West. Looking back that game would become a worldwide sensation.

I remember when they announced they where making this film, it was greeted with surprise. Now we have footage it’s not as ridiculous as we first believed. This isn’t really about the game, it’s the story of the man who discovered it. Some may see this as Capitalism versus Communism with a big slice of The Social Network. What we have here actually looks impressive and love the pixelated moments too!

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.

The film also stars Nikita Efremov, Sofia Lebedeva, Anthony Boyle, Togo Igawa, Ken Yamamura, Ben Miles, Rich Yune, Matthew Marsh and Toby Jones. Tetris will launch globally at Apple TV+ from 31st March.
