After years of development, 'Tetris' premieres March 31 on Apple TV+

"Tetris" premieres on March 31

Apple has revealed a trailer for "Tetris" for Apple TV+ that tells the story of the game's origins behind the Iron Curtain.

After years of production, following an abandoned edgy film planned in the early part of the '10s, the docu-drama "Tetris" will premiere at South by Southwest in March and will start streaming on Apple TV+ worldwide on March 31. Apple secured the rights to the thriller in 2020.

Based on a true story, the tale of how one of the most well-known video games in the world spread to players all around the world is told in "Tetris." In 1988, Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) found out about TETRIS.

He then takes a risky trip to the Soviet Union, where he teams up with creator Alexey Pajitnov — played by Nikita Efremov — to popularize the game.

Jon S. Baird directed "Tetris" with a script from Noah Pink. Matthew Vaughn, Gillian Berrie, Claudia Vaughn, Len Blavatnik, and Gregor Cameron serve as producers, with Zygi Kamasa, Carlos Peres, Iain Mackenzie, Noah Pink, Taron Egerton, Danny Cohen, Amanda Ghost, Vince Holden, Henk Rogers, Alexey Pajitnov, and Maya Rogers as executive producers.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app in over 100 countries and regions on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, and popular smart TVs. It's available for $6.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.

For a limited time, customers can get three months of Apple TV+ for free when they buy and activate a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, or iPod touch.
