Tetris, the beloved video game, has become a worldwide sensation thanks to its simple but addictive gameplay. Now, this beloved puzzler is getting a movie adaptation and it looks like an exciting Cold War-era thriller!

Kingsman actor Taron Egerton stars as Dutch-born co-founder Henk Rogers in this story of Tetris' creation, set to premiere March 31 on Apple TV+.

What’s the story?

It's an iconic video game, featuring its distinctive Russian aesthetic and addictive gameplay. Additionally, it tells a captivating tale of one man's quest to bring the game to the world.

Tetris began as a Soviet software engineer named Alexey Pajitnov working on testing an Electronika computer in 1984. Inspired by a Pentominos board game he'd bought earlier, Pajitnov created an electronic version that allowed players to arrange puzzle pieces as they fell from the screen - which he would eventually name "Tetris." This game would go on to become one of the most beloved video games in history and is widely considered as a major milestone in video game evolution.

Pajitnov began selling his game to stores around Moscow, and it quickly gained popularity and sold well. While he achieved some fame for his efforts, he never expected it to become such an international sensation.

Soon after Tetris' release, it became so popular across Europe and Japan that some countries banned it from being played on public televisions due to being perceived as a form of brainwashing.

At this time, various companies tried to claim ownership of the game. Andromeda from the UK, Spectrum HoloByte from Australia and Mirrorsoft all sublicensed it separately to various businesses.

Nintendo had been in talks to acquire the rights to distribute the game on their consoles, but before any agreement could be finalized it emerged that Pajitnov had made an error in his licensing agreement.

Once the news breaks, ELORG takes over negotiations with Stein. ELORG's director Alexander Alexinko quickly recognizes Stein is trying to steal Tetris and warns him of the potential repercussions.

At this point, Henk Rogers - a Dutch businessman who had been working with Nintendo on their Game Boy handheld system - comes to Russia to secure Tetris rights for his own company. However, when he meets Pajitnov and gets drawn into its shadowy history of corruption and lies behind the Iron Curtain, his involvement becomes complicated.

It’s a Cold War thriller

Tetris is one of the world's most beloved video games, despite its simple design. Created by Soviet software engineer Alexey Pajitnov in the mid-1980s, it quickly spread around the globe. A new trailer for Apple TV+ movie based on Tetris' origin story has just been released and promises an exciting Cold War thriller.

On March 31st, Taron Egerton stars in the film Pajitnov: The Perfect Game. The 80's-era trailer follows Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton), as he becomes obsessed with Pajitnov's game and begins pitching it to skeptical executives.

But his journey takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Moscow in search of Tetris' Soviet Union rights. There, he meets Pajitnov who promises him the game's international distribution rights.

Rogers must then navigate a series of intricate licensing disputes in order to finalize his deal. But his efforts are tested when he comes up against opposition from a British media mogul, KGB agents, and even Mikhail Gorbachev himself.

In the throes of this high-stakes battle, Rogers uncovers Pajitnov has an ulterior motive and malicious entities are watching him closely. Therefore, Rogers must put everything on the line to bring his beloved game to the world, placing himself and his family at risk.

Nikita Efremov, Toby Jones and Roger Allam star in one of 2023's most highly anticipated movies. It should be a must-watch for both gamers and non-gamers alike!

On March 31st, 2023, Apple's streaming service will make the film available to subscribers for $6.99 a month. It can be accessed across various devices such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, Xbox and Apple TV.

Jon S. Baird directed the movie with a screenplay by Noah Pink, produced by Matthew Vaughn, Gillian Berrie, Claudia Vaughn, Len Blavatnik and Gregor Cameron. The premiere for the film will take place at SXSW in March before hitting theaters and Apple TV+ on March 31.

It’s a family movie

Tetris is one of the greatest video games ever created and it has become a cultural icon, synonymous with video gaming across generations. Created by engineer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984, the Soviet Union released Tetris first before it made its way to Western shores a few years later. Since then, it's become an international sensation and remains one of its most beloved titles today.

Apple has released the trailer for their upcoming film on Tetris, which tells the true story of how Tetris became so popular. Starring Taron Egerton (Rocketman, Kingsman: The Secret Service), this captivating tale will be available through Apple TV+ on March 31.

The trailer depicts Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton), a businessman who discovers Tetris and attempts to secure its distribution rights for his company. To this end, he travels to the Soviet Union to meet Alexey Pajitnov - creator of Tetris - in person.

Henk's mission is complicated by the Soviet Union being separated from Europe at that time, leaving Rogers with a conspiracy far greater than he ever could have anticipated.

In addition to Henk Rogers, the film will star Nikita Yefremov as Tetris inventor Alexey Pajitnov and Roger Allam (V For Vendetta, Speed Racer) as Robert Maxwell, a British politician suspected of being a spy.

On March 31th, The Great Gatsby arrives on Apple TV+ for the first time and joins an expanding selection of original TV shows and movies already available on the streaming service. However, some reviewers have voiced concern about its lack of original content.

This Cold War thriller is packed with double-crossing villains, unlikely heroes and an exciting race to the finish. There are car chases, espionage and plenty of pixels throughout.

From its teaser, the film sets itself apart from other game adaptations. It's not a straightforward biopic that relies solely on the game's lore to craft an engaging plotline; rather, it demonstrates that Tetris' world is far more intricate than one might expect at first glance.

It’s a video game movie

The game known for its intricate puzzles involving square blocks fitting into space is getting its own video game movie. Instead of adapting the popular puzzle title, Apple chose to focus on the true story behind how it began.

Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Rocketman) stars as Henk Rogers, a Dutch businessman who discovered Tetris and secured its console distribution rights. As the trailer shows, it was an uphill battle to get Tetris onto Nintendo's Game Boy handheld console, then into gamers' hands around the world.

In the trailer, Egerton's Rogers embarks on an expedition to secure the global rights for his game and finds himself in an unexpected predicament. But as Soviet government collapses, Rogers finds himself embroiled in a conspiracy of global proportions that will ultimately leave him responsible for shaping its fate.

Tetris, the iconic video game, gets its own movie. Unlike most other video game-themed movies out there, this one takes a unique approach; rather than trying to be another Bourne Supremacy-style political thriller, it draws from David Fincher's The Social Network for inspiration.

Tetris stars an international cast, including Nikita Yefremov as Alexey Pajitnov - who designed and developed the game on his own. Ken Yamamura will portray Nintendo's former president Minoru Arakawa while Togo Igawa portrays Hiroshi Yamauchi - creator of both Tetris and Game Boy handheld consoles.

Apple TV+ has released the official trailer for Tetris, with its March 31 release date rapidly approaching. The clip features 80s pop needle drops, car chases, retro game effects and lots of pixels.

Henk Rogers and Alexei Pajitnov's real-life story perfectly captures the spirit of this iconic video game. Set during a time when video games were just starting to gain popularity, it's full of high stakes drama and Cold War intrigue - making it one of the most incredible stories to ever emerge from video gaming history and we are delighted that it will finally be brought to the big screen!
