Apple celebrates the World Premiere of 'Tetris' at SXSW and Lisa Jackson calls on those in Hollywood to push the Climate Change agenda
Yesterday at SXSW Film & TV Festival in Austin, Texas, Apple Original Films celebrated the world premiere of the highly anticipated thriller “Tetris,” which tells the gripping story of how the iconic video game came to be, from producer Matthew Vaughn and director Jon S. Baird, and starring Taron Egerton. “Tetris” will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on March 31, 2023.
“Tetris” tells the unbelievable story of how one of the world's most popular video games found its way to avid players around the globe. Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) discovers Tetris in 1988, and then risks everything by traveling to the Soviet Union, where he joins forces with inventor Alexey Pajitnov (Nikita Efremov) to bring the game to the masses. Based on a true story, “Tetris” is a Cold War–era thriller on steroids, with double-crossing villains, unlikely heroes and a nail-biting race to the finish.
