One thing that you probably should have noticed by now is that video game films and shows seem to be all the cravings these days. And soon to be joining the pile of great options is Tetris. Tetris is an apple TV Plus thriller about the origins of the ultra-popular game and on Thursday, the movie got its very first trailer. Tetris is reported to land on the streaming service and platform on March 31.
Description of the Movie Trailer
According to the description of the trailer, the movie is “inspired by the true story of how one man risked his life to outsmart the KGB and turn Tetris into a worldwide sensation.” Henk Rogers, the man behind the whole thing is played by Taron Egerton of Rocketman and the first two Kingsman movies.
The trailer released on Thursday opens up with Egerton’s Rogers raving on about “the perfect game.”
“I played for five minutes, I still see falling blocks in my dreams,” a mustachioed Egerton said. “It’s poetry. Art and math all working in magical synchronicity.”
The Iconic Game Was Created By Soviet Software Engineer Alexey Pajitnov In 1984
The popular and iconic game was created by Soviet software engineer Alexey Pajitnov back in 1984, and he reportedly worked with Rogers in getting it out to the world later in the decade. The trailer of the movie as you should know has an appropriately ‘80s soundtrack to go with it, with Europe’s 1986 hit The Final Countdown setting the mood.
