The first trailer for Apple's upcoming Tetris movie has just dropped.
Starring Taron Egerton as businessman and developer Henk Rogers, the movie focuses on the battle to secure the rights to the Russian puzzler created by Alexey Pajitnov (played by Nikita Yefremov).
Also featured in the trailer is the Famicom version of Tetris, which Rogers produced under his Bullet-Proof Software company – a version which he believed was created with the correct permissions but, in fact, wasn't. He successfully secured the home console rights after this, and Bullet-Proof would port the puzzler to the Game Boy, turning it into a global sales success.
According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, which went live alongside the trailer, it was revealed that it was Egerton who came up with the idea of fusing the retro visuals with the live footage. The movie is divided into 'levels', and new locations are often rendered in Tetris-style blocks.
