Taron Egerton’s Tetris Movie Gets First-Look Trailer


Taron Egerton is ready to smuggle one of the world’s most iconic video games out of the Soviet Union. 

Apple TV+ has released the first trailer for Tetris ahead of the film’s premiere at SXSW on March 15. Starring Egerton as Dutch entrepreneur Henk Rogers, the biographical drama follows the true story of how Rogers secured the distribution rights to the classic ’80s game during his travels to the Soviet Union. This involves the KGB, legal battles, the Cold War, and Nintendo’s Game Boy.

“I played for five minutes,” Egerton says in the teaser. “I still see falling blocks in my dreams. It’s poetry — art and math all working in magical synchronicity. It’s the perfect game.” 

Additional stars include Toby Jones, Moyo Akande, Roger Allam, Sofya Lebedeza, Anthony Boyle, Igor Grabuzov, Miles Barrow, Aaron Vodovoz, Leva Andrejevaite, Togo Igawa, Ken Yamamura, Ben Miles, Matthew Marsh, Rick Yune, and Nikita Yefremov as Tetris inventor Alexey Pajitnov. 

Tetris is directed by Jon S. Baird from a screenplay written by Noah Pink. Iain MacKenzie serves as executive producer, while Matthew Vaughn, Gillian Berrie, Claudia Vaughn, Len Blavatnik, and Gregor Cameron produce. 

Tetris is available to stream on March 31 on Apple TV+.
