When Tetris Bricks Go Bad - A Movie
Written by Alex Denham

If you can have a movie based on the Battleships game, then why not one on Tetris? This is the premise of the latest viral video trailer.

Tetris, the addictive block game, doesn't seem to have much scope for threatening behaviour but just think about the drama in the way the blocks might fall onto innocent buildings.

"The invasion is beginning. It is inevitable. You created them, you can destroy them! I did not create Tetris, I was but the messenger. Tell me how to stop them. This is an extinction level event. No, don't go! Let her go!"

Watch the trailer it look all to convincing and probably better than any of this years summer sci fi block busters.

 

 

The blurb suggests that if enough people watch then they they will attempt to make it into a real movie rather than just a spoof clip.

It could just work out - and there are no problems with the follow on - Connect Four anyone?
