Dubai’s stunning 160-storeyed Burj Khalifa is all set to light up with moving images of Wonder Woman in her latest big screen adventure as she dons wings of gold and rides lightning across the sky. In anticipation of the UAE opening of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman 1984, one of the world’s most loved superheroes is taking over the world’s tallest building—the magnificent Burj Khalifa to showcase the film’s incredible visuals and rousing audio on a massive scale.
The LED screen running down the east side of the 828-metre-tall Burj Khalifa was unveiled at the “Light Up 2018” New Year’s celebration captivating millions of viewers, both live and via live internet broadcasts across the world and has won Guiness World Records for the largest LED-illuminated façade and the tallest LED-illuminated façade. It has been a giant screen for several noted film promotions.
