filming locations

Now that the L.A. portion of shooting for Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises is finishing up, the production is packing up and getting ready to head out to New York City. And according to 24 Frames, someone working on the the film who has access to the actors’ schedules says that those in the movie have been briefed that while in New York they may be filming scenes that take place at the Occupy Wall Street protests. What sort of craziness is this? Well apparently there are scenes of civil unrest in TDKR and instead of going through the trouble of making his own, fake protests, Nolan would like to see if he could add some authenticity to his film by using a real street movement as a backdrop. Everything that TDKR is actually doing is, of course, super secret. The movie doesn’t even film under its own name, it films under the code name “Magnus Rex,” so whether any of this talk about protest shooting is real or not is hard to confirm.

The director of the Pittsburgh Film Office, Dawn Keezer, said, “They’re still nailing down actual locations, but what they really fell in love with was the diversity of architecture and the gorgeous buildings that we still have in Downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas.” Before this, the largest bulk of Nolan’s Batman franchise has been shot in Chicago. As someone who spends a lot of time in downtown Chicago, let me clue Pittsburgh residents in on what they can expect from the magical experience of a Batman movie being filmed in your hometown. Streets will be closed, vital streets that people need to drive on. Sidewalks will be unusable, crammed with thousands of gawkers hoping to catch a glimpse of God only knows what from thousands of feet away. Every day important local news will be pushed aside for stories stating simply that the shooting is still taking place, probably with some asinine quotes from sun burnt onlookers. Your life will be made […]
