As you may know, The Dark Knight Rises is hitting home disc formats on December 3rd. It’s almost like there’s a major purchasing season in the works, and maybe the team at Legendary read Robert Fure’s rant about special editions and bonus features because they’re showing off the stuff you get if you go Blu-ray and go home with Batman’s last adventure (until it’s rebooted next week).

To wit, a tidy little behind-the-scenes look at how the team blew up a football field as Hines Ward ran in for a touchdown. Spoiler alert: they did it by blowing up a football field as Hines Ward ran in for a touchdown.

Most fascinating is probably the design-level coordination it took to build small bunkers for actors to dive into while simulating their disappearance from the collapsing field. Of course, it’s great simply to get a glimpse into the mind of Christopher Nolan and visual effects supervisor Paul Franklin. Very cool stuff. [MSN]
