“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.

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' Movie Review

‘Tetris’ offers a fun, strange-but-true tale about the blocky game classic’s business origins. Taron Egerton stars as Henk Rogers, the American businessman who struggled to license the game from thorny Russian bureaucracy.

Releasing on Apple TV+ on March 31st, ‘Tetris’ tells the unbelievable –– but actually true –– story of how one Dutch-American businessman outsmarted Russian authorities and ruthless media rivals to bring the iconic game to the States and beyond, with the help of the man who created it. When you hear the title ‘Tetris’, your mind might flash to the current spate of video game adaptations –– the ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ franchise, for example, ‘Pokemon: Detective Pikachu’ (which was successful enough to spawn its own sequel, now in development, or the latest attempt to turn ‘Super Mario Bros.’ into a movie, with the animated take due in theaters shortly.
