First Glance: “Tetris”

Who hasn’t played Tetris? I know I have. I remember my little brother getting the original Nintendo GameBoy which came with Tetris packed in. Created by developer Alexey Pajitnov, the cascading puzzle game has had several iterations over the years, but it’s hard to beat the classic original which has sold hundreds of millions of copies. But have you heard the story behind the game? Now you get to thanks to Apple TV+.

The first trailer for the fittingly titled “Tetris” dropped today. Directed by Jon S. Baird, written by Noah Pink, and starring Taron Egerton, “Tetris” chronicles the intense legal battle that was fought just to take the game around the world. Based on a true story, this looks like part video game biography and part Cold War thriller. I love the sound of that. The trailer gives us a good sense of what to expect, and we won’t have to wait long to see it.

“Tetris” premieres March 31st on Apple TV+. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. Yeah, I want to see this. Tetris, Super Mario Land, Super Mario Land 2 were my games back in the day when I had the Gameboy. I’m glad they’re on Nintendo Switch. Now I need to get a Nintendo Switch just to play those old-school games.
