Trailer released for Ryan Reynolds's Abu Dhabi 6 Underground movie

Abu Dhabi and Dubai have featured been in a quite a few movies in recent years.

From the Fast and the Furious, to Mission: Impossible and Star Wars, the desert landscape and amazing skylines have been showcased on the big screen and now Abu Dhabi is set to get even more attention.

The trailer for the new Netflix film 6 Underground, starring Ryan Reynolds, features a handful of snippets of the UAE capital.

The Abu Dhabi skyline, Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Liwa Dessert, Aldar HQ, Jebel Hafeet and Louvre Abu Dhabi all feature.

The film, supported in the UAE by Abu Dhabi's twofour54, is set to be released on December 13, and is Netflix’s most expensive feature film to date, costing around Dhs560 million to make.

Ryan Reynolds and director Michael Bay were spotted filming at locations across the city last year while making the film including a number of scenes shot on Reem Island that weren’t featured in the trailer.

Alongside Reynolds, the film also stars Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Corey Hawkins, Adria Arjona, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Ben Hardy, Payman Maadi and Lior Raz.

Maryam Eid Al Mheiri, vice-chair of twofour54, said: “We are delighted to see Abu Dhabi yet again featuring so prominently in a major international production. It was a pleasure to welcome Netflix back to our Emirate and to support such a smooth and seamless shoot.

"It also marked the return of industry pioneer Netflix to Abu Dhabi, which filmed War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, in the Emirate in 2015."

We can’t wait to see the film later this year.
