Apple Original Films celebrates world premiere of “Tetris” with star Taron Egerton at SXSW
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.
Those celebrating the “Tetris” world premiere at SXSW included Taron Egerton, Ayane Nagabuchi, director Jon S. Baird, screenwriter and executive producer Noah Pink, editor Col Goudie, producers Gillian Berrie and Gregor Cameron, executive producers Amanda Ghost, Henk Rogers, Alexey Pajitnov and Maya Rogers, and soundtrack artist Polina.
“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.
Apple Original Films’ “Tetris” stars Egerton, Nikita Efremov, Sofia Lebedeva, Anthony Boyle, Toby Jones and Roger Allam. The film is directed by Jon S. Baird from a script by Noah Pink. “Tetris” is produced by Matthew Vaughn, Gillian Berrie, Claudia Vaughn, Len Blavatnik and Gregor Cameron, with Zygi Kamasa, Carlos Peres, Iain Mackenzie, Noah Pink, Taron Egerton, Danny Cohen, Amanda Ghost, Vince Holden, Henk Rogers, Alexey Pajitnov and Maya Rogers executive producing.
