Kandahar has made history as the first Western movie filmed entirely in Saudi Arabia.
“That was an exceptionally unique place to film and live. From the second I arrived there, I knew it was special. I’d seen photos of the area of course, and I knew it looked amazing, but just the energy there is what really takes you by surprise… I loved being in Al’Ula and discovering Saudi Arabia In my time off, I spent time just seeing the history, the nature. But in terms of a canvas to film on, there’s so much personality there, and it’s so dynamic. The location adds a whole other character in the movie.Talking about the experience filming in the city of Al’Ula, Gerard Butler said.
