The cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond are busy shooting at an outdoor location in Dubai's DIFC district today.

The filming of this particular scene, which started yesterday, appears to show a crashed spaceship with action sequences including people being helped from the wreckage.

The set is visible to residents of the nearby Central Park Towers building, which has led to numerous photos and video clips being posted on social media.

The shoot is understood to be continuing until tomorrow.

Last week, the city's main highway, Sheikh Zayed Road, was closed between the intersections of Dubai World Trade Centre and the Dubai Mall for filming of Star Trek Beyond.

The Star Trek cast and crew are spending two weeks filming in Dubai and the production is believed to be using a massive soundstage in Dubai Studio City and will also film at the Meydan racecourse.
