The last minutes from the trailer are great: about those aerial scenes around Burj Khalifa
BTW, the fight scene (1:29) are inside in Burj Khalifa?

No, it does NOT need one nearby. Is perfect as it is now.

It's part of the face of Dubai,, many other supertalls that pull down the pants of other towers exist.. where ever you smoke your pipe..

My guess is that the official release of the trailer for MI4 could well be coming up in just a few hours:

Hi all.

Ok - Time for a question I've had for some time to be answered.

This is for our Dubai forumers. Not sure but a knowledge of arabic (I don't even know if that is what the UAE's native language is called ... ) may be helpfull.

What is the proper english pronunciation of Burj Khalifa ?

I've read 2 different ways and maybe they're not correct either ?
(in brackets is an example of only the vowel sound)

1 - Burj is pronounced berj (like her) or borj (like more) ?
2 - Khalifa is pronounced ka-le-fa with a heavy k like your clearing your throat and sounding ka (like can)- le (like lee) - fa (like fat) -- 3 syllables
or
a-ha-le-fa sounding like a (like at)- ha (like have)- le (like lee)- fa (like fat) -- 4 syllables ?

Hope that isn't too confusing.


Ray.

Those pics are magnificent. And I agree, no other tall buildings are needed nearby. It is just perfect this way!

English speakers do pronaunce it like 'berj', but the correct one is 'boorj'. For Khalifa the first option is correct, though the 'h' is not completely silent. .... and UAE, being an Arabic country, the language of the natives/Citizens is, guess what, Arabic (the Khaleejee dialect, where khaleejee = Gulf)
