They spent two months filming in Dubai, so I think it will feature Dubai quite heavily....

I think that karate kicks scene (also if you watch the video the exact moment) is in Burj Khalifa. Check the interior desing of that room...

For those who have access to BBCiPlayer, there was a fantastic showcase of Dubai on the show called Made in Britain on BBC2, which was looking at the services the UK exports overseas. Dubai and the UAE imports £2 billion worth of services from the UK each year!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...ain_Episode_3/

Those who are unable to watch the video, here is a sampling of some of the excellent coverage and fantastic cinematography

And cue the Lawrence of Arabia theme tune......

Do Burj Khalifa sellers need to get real?

Quote:
By Shane McGinley | Thursday, 7 July 2011 8:50 AM

This week apartment sellers in the Burj Khalifa’s Armani Residences have listed a number of two-bedroom units with asking prices of AED30m ($8.1m) each.

This equated to AED13,500 ($3675) per square foot – nearly 20% higher than during the peak of the property boom in Dubai.

The news comes just days after Arabian Business reported sale prices on the luxury Palm Jumeirah development have sunk to a four-year low, with apartments being offered for as little as AED650 ($176) per sq ft.

In 2008, before the property crash, Colliers reported that Armani units in the tower were valued at around AED11,000 per square foot, so do sellers need to get with reality and lower their prices and expectations for the market to move forward?

Arabian Business asked the experts in the know for an insight. Click here to read what they said:
