Production Update #13: A “That’s A Wrap!” Wrap-Up

The Dark Knight Rises Wraps

It has certainly been an adventure for Christopher Nolan and the cast & crew of the final installment of the Gotham Trilogy. From May in Jodhpur, India to November in New York City, the filming of The Dark Knight Rises has been a widely publicized, massive production.

Some major action sequences were filmed in streets of Los Angeles, and like all location reports, minor spoilers are bound to be revealed.
