World's tallest building Burj Khalifa celebrated the release of "Wonder Woman 1984" by illuminating some footage from the movie across the structure.

On Tuesday, the official Twitter handle of Burj Khalifa shared a video in which the building is lit up with images and clips from the "Wonder Woman" sequel just days before its release in the United Arab Emirates.

"Burj Khalifa lights up in celebration of the release of 'Wonder Woman 1984' in cinemas on December 17. Book your tickets now! #WW84," the caption said.

The UAE is one of the few places that will see the highly-anticipated movie release this weekend. The U.K. is the second nation to release the DC film one week before the U.S. premiere.

Gal Gadot, who plays the titular character, shared the video on her official Instagram and said she is grateful for such a great honor.

"This is unreal! #WW84 covering the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai," Gadot wrote alongside the video.

The plot of “Wonder Woman 1984” has been kept under wraps. Apart from Gadot and Chris Pine, the film will introduce Kristen Wiig as supervillain Cheetah, while Pedro Pascal will be playing the role of Maxwell Lord.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, the movie is scheduled to release on the big screen and HBO Max on Christmas Day.

Gadot recently defended Warner Bros. for taking the movie to HBO Max, saying the team "did not have better options."

"We felt like the movie was so relevant to what's happening in the world right now that you come to a place at a certain time where you're like, 'Ok, I just want people to watch the movie,'" Gadot told Digital Spy.
