Coming to a movie theater near you: Dubai destroyed, again

FILE – In this Oct. 7, 2016 file photo, people watch the sunset over the skyline, with Burj Khalifa at right, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Monday, Oct. 7, 2016. The coming film “Geostorm” marks just the latest movie in which Western filmmakers put the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates in its crosshairs. As a mammoth wave from the Persian Gulf rises up to drown fleeing beachgoers and wash over downtown Dubai and the world’s tallest building, you can be forgiven for thinking you’ve seen this all before.
