  1. The film based on Tetris, one of the best selling video games of all time, was announced back in 2014. Since then, it has gone through some changes and will now feature a story so sweeping that it requires a full trilogy to tell, reports Empire. The film trilogy is being brought to life by Threshold Entertainment, the company founded by Larry Kasanoff who will be producing the trio of Tetris movies. When asked why the story of Tetris required not one, or two, but three films, Kasanoff responded, "purely because the story we conceived is so big. 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." Kasanoff also revealed some tidbits about what exactly the studio has in mind for the now epic tale of Tetris, or rather what it isn't going to be, saying, "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!" The bar is set rather low, indeed. Larry Kasanoff is best known for his work bringing the Mortal Kombat series to the big screen in a collection of embarrassingly bad films. Beyond those, however, Kasanoff directed Foodfight! the incredibly infamous animated film starring various mascots found on the packaging of name brand supermarket foods. The theme of the Tetris films will echo Kasanoff's original epiphany when thinking about Tetris, that of "creating order out of chaos." Kasanoff wants to preserve the air of mystery surrounding what exactly the story of Tetris will be, so he concluded by saying, "I guarantee you it’s not what you think. No one has come remotely close to figuring out what we’re doing." Casting for the film series is already in full swing and Kasanoff has said that they have a big eye on the potential marketability of the project in China. With the budget for the first Tetris moving hovering at $80 million, they had better hope those markets prove profitable. View full article

  3. From breaking through the Iron Curtain of Soviet Russia to being labelled as a cause of medically confirmed hallucinations, Tetris has a fascinating history both within and without the video game industry. Alexey Pajitnov and Vladamir Pokhilko's classic puzzle game has become one of the most widely available video games on the planet and a common household name. To this day, Tetris appears near the top of best games of all time lists, but is that merely nostalgia or a mark of genuine quality? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Tetris 'The Peddler's Legacy' by Vurez (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02202) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! You can also follow the show on Twitter: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday

  5. Finally. The movie that we've all been waiting for is finally entering production. Who hasn't been kept awake in the wee hours of the morning dreaming about a science fiction adaptation of Tetris brought to the big screen by the same people who created 1995's cheesy fighting extravaganza, Mortal Kombat. The film will be produced by Threshold Entertainment and executive produced with the help of The Tetris Company. “Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world,” said Threshold's Larry Kasanoff. “What everyone doesn’t know yet is this epic sci-fi story that we’re going to tell. That’s what’s really exciting.” “What started as a simple, computer puzzle game 30 years ago, today is part of our global consciousness, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds and feeding our innate desire to create order out of chaos,” said Henk Rogers, MD of The Tetris Company. “We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to re-imagine that common experience and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen for the first time. In this new universe, as you’ll soon find out, there’s much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines.” There isn't much more information about the Tetris movie available at this time. A note on their website states that, "Threshold does not publish information on its films in development so as to prevent slimy little weasels from stealing – we mean, for reasons of creative integrity." Look, I am all for giving whatever movie comes out of this pairing a fair shake. Maybe it will have some kind of Last Starfighter thing going on with aliens and video games and the fate of the galaxy. That could be pretty cool.On the other hand, this is the same company that had a hand in the creation of the abomination known as Food Fight!.
