Tetris Official Trailer (2023): Starring Taron Egerton on Apple TV+
Tetris is not an adaptation of the video game to the big screen, but rather a biopic that tells us about the legal battle regarding the intellectual property rights of the game. Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) plays Hank Rogers, businessman and video game developer who was instrumental in resolving disputes regarding the Tetris license. Also in the film is Alexey Pajitnov, played by Nikita Yefremov. Pajitnov was the father of Tetris.
The movie, based on true events, also touches on other topics, such as the collapse of the Soviet Union, the last throes of the Cold War, and the launch of the Game Boy, establishing Nintendo’s domination of the portable game console market. Something that still remains today.
The Tetris movie premieres on March 31 on the Apple TV+ platform. The tech company distributes the film and it is not expected to have a theatrical release or launch on another streaming platform, at least in the short term.
