Couple re-enact famous movie scenes in apartment while under lockdown

A Hungarian couple has probably devised the most inventive way yet to stay sane while under coronavirus quarantine — recreating iconic movie scenes at home using toilet paper, eggs and other household items.

In one of their homemade spinoffs, Fanni and Norbert — their last names were withheld — parrot a famous shot of “Star Wars” characters Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia with a kitchen utensil pinch-hitting for a lightsaber. Another cosplay depicts the cinematic tribute band cleverly recreating the “Rocky” movie poster with an oven mitt.

“I am a huge movie buff and Norbi loves movies from the ’70s and ’80s, so our love for the craft is what inspired this series,” Fanni tells Jam Press. Former performers who specialized in live events, Fanni and Norbert decided to turn their talents to entertaining themselves and fellow isolationists after their careers were put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Now we have a lot of time to do things we couldn’t do before, so we tried to make the best out of this situation while also using our creativity,” says Fanni, who along with her husband ran a local improv theater.

Not only that, but the thespian says that the pair still possess “a lot of accessories and costumes” left over from when they used to play dress-up during their university days.

The result: a compendium of low-budget scene recreations worthy of Michel Gondry’s cinematic love letter “Be Kind Rewind.” The length of each photo shoot varies, according to Fanni, but she says it takes around “three hours to stage two of the scenes.”

“We are happy to make people smile,” says Fanni, who plans to continue the recreations in the future.

Norbi offers a toilet paper-filled tribute to Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Commando,” which is reportedly his favorite film. Here’s hoping the TP didn’t go to waste in light of rampant shortages.

And if you’re not too Governatored out, we submit Norbi doing his best impression of pregnant Schwarzenegger in “Junior.”

No collection would be complete without a shout-out to the most famous scene in the 1980 horror classic “The Shining,” starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall and recreated here with a sausage in lieu of a threatening ax.

Don’t have a golden idol for an ode to Harrison Ford’s 1981 hit “Raiders of the Lost Ark”? Just use a box of Hungarian pastries instead!

Fani offers a photographic love letter to her favorite film, “Men In Black,” with aliens swapped out for eggs.

The cinephile soulmates offer a homespun rendition of the poster for 1999’s “Fight Club,” which starred Brad Pitt.

Pottery-making gets a new spin in their tribute to Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in the 1990 movie “Ghost.”

Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo, from “First Blood,” is less intimidating with a kitchen tool than a knife.

For superhero freaks, here’s their un-canny — and frankly unnerving — impersonation of Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. in “Iron Man.”

The couple offers cuteness overload for fans of the animated flick “Wreck-It Ralph.”
