WATCH: Trailer for TETRIS arrives and it looks great

February 16th, 2023 by Marc Comments

We’re finally mere weeks away from the TETRIS movie and it looks great.

When it was first announced many, many moons ago, we feared it would be a LEGO Movie-type deal with the game of TETRIS incorporated into a story of some kind but no, it’s based on the so-crazy-it-must-be-true story of Henk Rogers and how he managed to get TETRIS out of the Soviet Union and make it a worldwide phenomenon.

Check out the trailer below and we’ll see you all on the sofa on March 31st.

Based on the true story of American video game salesman Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) and his discovery of TETRIS in 1988. When he sets out to bring the game to the world, he enters a dangerous web of lies and corruption behind the Iron Curtain.

Directed By: Jon S. Baird

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
