Jason Momoa shares a behind-the-scenes training video showcasing the intense fight choreography he had to learn for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. Following his breakout role as Game of Thrones’ Khal Drogo and subsequent casting as Arthur Curry/Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe, Momoa has become one of the biggest action stars on the planet. The actor is currently filming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom as his hit Apple TV+ series See streams its second season. When the highly-anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune releases next month, fans can see Momoa has legendary warrior Duncan Idaho.
Nearly 40 years after David Lynch’s Dune, Villeneuve’s (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) big-budget sci-fi adaptation is one of the anticipated films of 2021. The film’s star-studded ensemble cast includes Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, and Javier Bardem, to name just a few. It follows Chalamet as the protagonist, Paul Atreides who, as the son of nobleman Duke Leto (Isaac), will someday take over as the leader of House Atreides—the house that rules over the desert planet of Arrakis. Paul receives his combat training from none other than swordmaster Duncan Idaho, Duke Leto’s right-hand man.
Momoa recently took to Instagram to share a brief video that takes viewers into his intense fight choreography. The clip begins with Momoa talking about how “it’s been like three weeks of training,” and he’s “just a little nervous before the big fight. Don’t want to get hurt, don’t want to hurt anybody.” We are then shown the actor training with the stunt team, learning swordplay and wrestling moves. Check it out below:

With roles like Khal Drogo, Aquaman, and Baba Voss, Momoa is no stranger to fight choreography. However, the fight scenes in Dune are said to be faster, less elongated, and more about necessity than in other films. By the look of things, Momoa’s two massive fight scenes will most likely be some of the most elaborate in the film. As is the case with most BTS videos, it’s interesting to see the choreography slowed down and planned out. Although, it still looks intense. Intense enough to be kneed in the groin by Chalamet on set.
Despite what are sure to be some epic fight scenes, Dune seems more focused on its setting, visuals, and world-building. The success of this first film and audience investment will decide whether or not the studio goes ahead with a sequel. As mentioned by Momoa, Dune is already exceeding expectations at the international box office before its October 22 stateside release in theaters and on HBO Max—something that is partially thanks to Momoa’s dedication as evident above. It’s worth mentioning that Duncan is the only character to be featured in all six of Herbert’s original novels. Suffice to say, this role could become a huge part of his professional life.
