Thanks to the production of Dune, several well-known actors — including Jason Momoa and Oscar Isaac — are staying in Budapest and flooding their social media accounts with content from the Hungarian capital.
Hungarian fans might just bump into Star Wars’ Poe Dameron and Oscar Isaac; Aquaman and Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa; and Josh Brolin, who plays the main villain Thanos in the last two Avengers‘ films. They are currently shooting Dune – a feature adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel about the son of a noble family trying to avenge his father’s death while saving a spice planet.
Most of the actors arrived last week and posted pictures and videos of the Hungarian capital to social media. Josh Brolin even accompanied a picture his wife took in front of Nyugati station with a long caption paying tribute to World War II and The Freedom Fighters of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution.
Jason Momoa also explored Budapest. He toured St. Stephen’s Basilica with fellow Dune actor Oscar Isaac, had a beer in a pub, visited the Parliament and even climbed up to the Buda Castle with his friend and famous rock climber, Chris Sharma.
On Saturday and Sunday, Grammy-winner guitarist Al Di Meola performed three concerts in MOMkult with Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac and Timothée Chalamet in attendance. Isaac and Momoa even exercised their guitar skills by jamming a bit with the artist backstage after the concert:
