Dark Knight Rises Departs Pittsburgh

Filming in Pittsburgh has concluded on “The Dark Knight Rises” ahead of the production’s move to Los Angeles.

Shooting will take place in California over three weeks through the early part of September with sets already under construction according to Batman-on-Film. While there will be some location footage, most of the L.A. shoot will take place in sound stages.

Once finished there, the production will then relocate to New York City for the final leg of filming.


Meanwhile some fun footage has emerged from one last bit of shooting late last week in Pittsburgh. First up one of the Tumbler’s was spotted with a new feature – a missile launcher. Video of that is available here.

Photos of one of the Tumbler’s having fallen into a hole made the rounds early last week, but now there’s video showing us how it got there.
