Production Update #12: Welcome To The Big Apple

The Dark Knight Rises in New York City

For the past two months now, The Dark Knight Rises has been filming in the greater Los Angeles area with a fair amount of public attention. Our last production update covered many of the mostly spoiler-free highlights from those locations. But now production on The Dark Knight Rises bucks its trend of moving westward, and in turn starts up on the East Coast of the USA in New York City. As usual, filming of next year’s most anticipated movie is getting a lot of public attention. It’s only the first day of filming in the big apple and photos are popping up all over the net. Splash News, Superhero Hype, and Celebuzz have posted what we deem to be spoiler-free pictures that include: Gotham Cable News trucks on the streets, Bruce Wayne’s Lamborghini, Trump Tower doubling as the Wayne Enterprises building, and Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in action filming. Check out the gallery below to see the latest pictures from the first day of filming in New York City. Continue reading

Production Update #11: The Giant Los Angeles Wrap-Up

The Dark Knight Rises in Los Angeles

It’s been a little over a month since we last did a production update about Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, but don’t let that fool you, they’ve been busy filming in Los Angeles ever since. Amateur photos have popped up online here and there over the last few weeks, as well as a number of videos, but in relation to past filming locations, the filming in Los Angeles has been sort of low-key. Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy and some others have all been spotted on set over the past couple weeks. Some major action sequences were filmed in streets of Los Angeles, and like all location reports, minor spoilers are bound to be revealed. If you don’t care to see photos and videos from the Los Angeles filming or learn what they’re of, read no more. Continue reading

The Dark Knight Rises Pittsburgh Press Conference

The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh

Filming on The Dark Knight Rises will begin in Pittsburg, PA tomorrow, but before it does, Christopher Nolan and his team decided to hold a press conference thanking the city’s officials and residents for their hospitality and cooperation in advance. The film production will be in the city of Pittsburgh for approximately a month before moving on to Los Angeles. A fair number of stunts and action scenes will be filmed within in The Steel City, in addition to a large amount of fake snow that will be spread across the city’s streets. Christian Bale and many of the film’s star will be present for this portion of filming, which is trying to stay as vague and nondescript as possible. To signal that production is in town, a large laser-inscribed Bat Signal has been placed on the side of one of the city’s prominent skyscrapers. Batman-News has some more cool photos of the signal being displayed by Lightwave International, so head over there to check it out. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review was able to take video from the event and post it on their website for your viewing pleasure.
