For the next installment of Dubai Presents, Dubai Tourism has borrowed from the school of Wes Anderson. Building on the popular appeal of romcoms, Anderson fans will recognize the trailer’s delicious color palette, retro aesthetics and familiar soundtrack.

Once again starring Zac Efron and Jessica Alba, the film tells the tale of two identical suitcases that make their way to the wrong owner. Throughout ‘A Romance to Remember’ Efron and Alba endeavor to find their missing luggage, journeying through the city on two very contrasting itineraries designed by the pair, who are destined to cross paths.

Once again the trailer visits well-known Dubai attractions, such as the historic Al Fahidi neighborhoods, quirky boutiques and Creekside cafes in Al Seef to the serene expanse of the desert and a traditional desert camp. The trailer is completed by an orchestral film score, reminiscent of Anderson’s movies.

The second in a series of six films follows ‘A Five Star Mission’, which was filmed in the style of the classic spy action genre featuring dramatic espionage-style sequences.
