World-famous actor gives exclusive interview about the upcoming film "1242 - At the Gates of the West”

Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts gave an exclusive interview to Hír TV's "Radar". The production, which is being filmed in the Visegrád citadel for a month with a cast of international stars that promises to be the most outstanding work in decades, takes us back to the time when the Kingdom of Hungary was on the brink of destruction due to the invasion of the Mongol Empire.

Eric Roberts, who plays the role of the fortress captain Ákos, and András Stohl, who portrays the fierce warrior Kangar, said that after the defeat at Muhi, the only obstacle to the Tatar invasion of Europe was the fortress of Esztergom.

The gap-filling historical adventure film, which will be released at the end of the year in cooperation with the Institute of Hungarian Research, presents the final days of the military campaign, which was a decisive historical moment for Béla IV, considered to be the second founder of the Hungarian nation, and Batu Khan, the founder of the Golden Horde.
