As we have reported, Marvel’s new origin movie, the Black Widow was shot in the Hungarian capital with the freshly two-time Oscar-nominated Scarlett Johansson. The new trailer for the film has just been released and although it operates with fewer Budapest images, it is still visible that the movie will be full of Hungarian locations, for example the dome of the Parliament building is included in the new trailer.
Following Will Smith’s ‘Gemini Man,’ directed by Ang Lee, another major Hollywood film will feature the streets of Budapest this year. The first trailer of the Marvel origin film, ‘Black Widow,’ dropped a month ago, and it could practically function as a tourism branding campaign spot, as one can spot Keleti Railway Station, the Bálna building, the Chain Bridge, and the Parliament, while the protagonist Black Widow, played by Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson fights the bad guys.
The new trailer dropped yesterday. Although fewer Budapest locations can be recognized, watchful fans can spot the dome of the Parliament building in the backdrop of a spectacular tank battle scene, and a typical, yellow Budapest tram in another scene. The trailer shows a bit more of the plot of the movie – and it is certain that it takes place between the second Captain America and the third Avengers film.
Budapest has been mentioned in the Avengers films before. The Black Widow and Hawkeye were sent on a mission to the Hungarian capital as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. During the mission, they were involved in a situation that would later be remembered by Romanoff during the Battle of New York, a fight she said reminded her of Budapest. Hawkeye, however, couldn’t recall what had happened.
In addition to Johansson, the film will feature Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbor. ‘Black Widow’ will be released in Hungarian cinemas on April 30, 2020.
