Tetris is a drama-comedy film on Apple TV+. Released on March 31, it stars Taron Egerton as Henk Rogers, a video game designer who discovered the game Tetris in 1988 and seeks its rights.

Rogers joins forces with Tetris inventor Alexey Pajitnov, played by Nikita Efremov, to distribute the game to the world.
