Good news if you were excited for the Tetris movie (lol): they’re going to make three of them! Despite the fact that nearly every video game adaptation is a flop of titanic proportions, movies like “Warcraft inexplicably making themselves a wad of cash are spurring studios on to pour money into movies that people will most likely only watch as a joke.

In case you’ve forgotten the famously dense plot of Tetris that requires an epic trilogy to be faithfully retold, here’s a quick recap: blocks. That’s the plot of the game Tetris, there’s some blocks.

Because I’m a complete idiot I’ve watched “Far Cry“, I’ve watched “Mortal Kombat” (both of them), I’ve watched “Street Fighter” and I even watched the startlingly bizarre “Super Mario Bros.“, and they all have one thing in common: they are extremely bad. 

The Tetris Movie Is Now Going To Be A Trilogy Because The 2010s Are Fucked

But let’s not assume the worst, let’s read this totally-not-batshit quote from co-producer Larry Kasanoff:

“This isn’t us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It’s just a big story. We’re not going to have blocks with feet running around the movie, but it’s great that people think so. It sets the bar rather low! We want the story to be a surprise, but it’s a big science-fiction movie. 

“I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos. I guarantee you it’s not what you think. No one has come remotely close to figuring out what we’re doing.”

OK great, no blocks with feet (which seems like it could have been hilarious), and it will explore the mind-blowing theme of making order from chaos, just like the video game did. Sure.

We can only guess at what ridiculous monstrosity they’ll construct to somehow hang three movies worth of storyline off the barest bones of an idea possible, but we can hold out for hope it’s just so bad that it becomes genuinely entertaining.
