Batman’s Tumbler races down snowy Pittsburgh streets in exclusive “Dark Knight Rises” shots
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the Pittsburgh set of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” as production crew cover the streets of Steel City with fake snow to shoot exterior shots of Batman in action.
A spy on the “Rises” set has been feeding us images from the outdoor set, giving us great shots of Batman’s Tumbler on the snow-coated street of Pittsburgh. We have them below.
It’s strange to see this much footage from such a high-profile film reach the Internet during production. But by choosing to film fight scenes and football games in front of tech-savvy extras and fans, Nolan has to expect leaks from his relatively open set.
I also like the theory by some on the Web that these images are set-up, that they have very little to do with the overall film which, as we know, will look extremely different after a run through post-production.
“The Dark Knight Rises” will be in theaters next July. These images will try and hold you over until then.
