Apple TV has you covered when it comes to the most fast-paced legal battle over a video game and we explore the Tetris movie soundtrack, filled with a score by Lorne Balfe and 80s hits alongside aespa’s new song, Hold On Tight, featuring the melody from the video game.

Taron Egerton has conquered a number of biopics in his career already, having previously portrayed James Keene in Black Bird, Elton John in Rocketman, and Eddie Edwards in Eddie the Eagle. The Star Wars fandom was also made aware of the actor’s decline to appear as a young Han Solo.

Directed by Jon S. Baird and written by Noah Pink for Apple TV+, the biographical drama, Tetris, follows Henk Rogers and the monumental legal battle that took place in the 80s in order to secure the rights to the titular video game, starring Egerton, Toby Jones, Nikita Yefremov, Togo Igawa, and more.

Tetris score

The instrumental Tetris score is brought to you by iconic composer, Lorne Balfe, who has also scored the music from this weekend’s release, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

Additionally, Balfe is also behind superhero projects, Black Widow and Black Adam, blockbuster television shows including His Dark Materials and The Wheel of Time, as well as the video game, Assassin’s Creed III.

In the Tetris movie, Balfe offers four tracks that are powerful in nature, featuring soaring strings and upbeat synths to accompany the high-stake legalities.
