DUBAI: Netflix released the trailer for “6 Underground,” a new movie that is set to stream on Dec. 13, with scenes shot in the UAE.
The three-minute clip showed shots of Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Bridge, The Grand Mosque and Louvre Abu Dhabi. There were also scenes featuring the Liwa desert in the western region of the capital.
Actor Ryan Reynolds, star of the movie, tweeted the trailer, saying: “Apparently @netflix now has a ‘digital’ arm, so you don’t have to rewind at the end. Anyway, here's the ‘digital’ trailer for #6Underground A.K.A. How Michael Bay Stopped Worrying and Love Explosions More.”
“6 Underground,” by the director of the “Transformers” sequel Michael Bay, is said to be Netflix’s most expensive production to date, with a budget of around $125 million.
“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,” vice-chair of TwoFour54, the media company Netflix worked with, Maryam Al-Mheiri said.
