Tetris is inspired by a real event. In 1988, Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) created Tetris.

Collider interviewed producer Matthew Vaughn about the 2021 picture, and here is what he said:
“This is a great, great original thriller… It’s sort of like, imagine The Big Short meets Bridge of Spies. It’s sort of a crazy, unique story.”

People have been crazy about the game Tetris for more than 30 years, but not many people know where it came from. This is the official synopsis:

There are a lot of great movies to watch on Apple TV+. While you’re waiting to play Tetris, you might want to check out these four games. Dramas that were nominated for Best Picture and animations that were nominated for Oscars are all in these four movies:
Cha Cha Real Smooth (2022): Cha Cha Real Smooth is a beautiful movie that was written, directed, and acted in by Cooper Raiff. A man named Andrew (Raiff) is a bar mitzvah party host. He gets close to a young woman (Dakota Johnson) and her daughter, who is in her teens (Vanessa Burghardt). The movie is about how people might be looking for love in the wrong places.
Andrew is in his mid-20s, but he is still trying to figure out where he fits in the world. This shows that even after the teen years, there is still a lot to learn. Cha Cha Real Smooth is a drama, but the mix of comedy and chill vibes (from the score by Este Haim and Christopher Stracey) keeps you from getting too sad.
