That it would be interesting: to see Burj Khalifa and the surroundings of the tower (fountains etc) in -any- film like this of MI4 its really interesting

Hi all.

Now that is cool. MI4 is going to be some great advertising for the BK. Something tells me there will only be 5 minutes of the BK in the finished film but it will still be purchased on DVD.

All these windows were boarded up last weekend.

I'm beginning to think that these windows have been taken out deliberately for a reason...
