The capital proves to be the perfect playground for Tom Cruise's stunts.

The brand-new trailer for the highly anticipated Hollywood blockbuster Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has just been released - showing Abu Dhabi in all its glory.

Superstar Tom Cruise along with the film's director Christopher McQuarrie and the rest of the cast and crew spent two weeks in Abu Dhabi last year to capture all the jaw-dropping action sequences. And the capital is undoubtedly taking centre stage.

So let's dive into some more details. The Mission: Impossible trailer gives us a sneak peek into the mind-boggling plots and stunts that the film franchise is famous for. And Abu Dhabi provides the perfect backdrop for all the action. The scenes filmed in the capital show the Liwa desert, with its endless sea of mesmerising sand dunes. And don't forget about the new Midfield Terminal, which adds a touch of modernity and architectural brilliance to the trailer.

This isn't the first time the Mission: Impossible franchise has chosen Abu Dhabi as a filming location. Remember that mind-blowing HALO jump sequence from Mission: Impossible – Fallout back in 2018? Yep, that was shot in Abu Dhabi too. In fact, some scenes from the next instalment, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two will have majestic shots of Abu Dhabi as well. Exciting, isn't it?

The collaboration between Hollywood and Abu Dhabi has certainly put the city on the global film map. Filmmakers from around the world are drawn to the capital's diverse locations, ranging from futuristic skylines to traditional souks and opulent hotels to rugged desert landscapes.
