A new trailer for the film Sex and the City 2 shows scenes set in what is supposed to be Abu Dhabi – although the film was actually shot in Morocco. You can view the trailer here.
In the preview, Samantha – played by Kim Cattrall – exclaims “I can hear the decadence calling” when told about an “all expenses paid” holiday to the UAE capital. The film depicts the female central characters drinking champagne, partying, and apparently falling in love during their stay in Abu Dhabi.
The movie was shot in Morocco after filmmakers were reportedly denied permission by UAE authorities to film in Dubai, citing sensitivity to the “multicultural fabric of the society and its perceptions”.
The film, based on the popular HBO television series and starring Sarah Jessica Parker, is scheduled for release on 28 May 2010.
