New <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i> Set Footage; Showcasing Bane's HEMTT Vs. The Batwing!

Some more footage from today's TDKR L.A. shoot, has found it's way on the world wide web. Hit the jump for more!

Today Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises shoot continued in Downtown L.A.
CBM Nailbiter111 already posted one exciting video of Bane's truck dropping down a bridge.
Below are some more exciting videos and pics of the Batwing VS. Bane's truck.

When I got there they had the entire grand ave blocked off but I watched Banes truck at street level as it headed presumably into the drop from inside a lobby of a building. Then I went down on some intersection of 1st and another street behind the West Promenade hotel and talked to a security guard who was real friendly and told me he had see Morgan Freeman on set. I saw Gary Oldman's stunt double (which I tweeted about as Gary Oldman and then realized it was a double upon seeing a pap's zoom lense photo). The crew was standing around the Bane "bomb trucks" (thats what they called them on set). Some Mercs were present. Nolan was eating an ice cream cone and his kids were on set as well. I moved up back to grand ave and watched for a while outside the Disney Hall building and saw several takes of the Bane truck driving in circles around the hole where it was supposed to fall through. Then they moved the Batwing out onto Grand Ave to face the truck. Some gunfire took place and the truck was smoking. Several Gotham cars like Cabs, etc were present and covered in snow. I got REAL close to the bomb truck and I have some close pics of it to post soon. - RedSkull (SHH)

I'm sure thats a part of the shot/stunt we saw earlier. About Banes truck falling into the lower level. Maybe a shot before it falls, for editing.

being on a movie set would be awesome. I worked during the ice storm in Texarkana a few years back and it looked like a warzone everywhere, but this happening in front of you would be scary and cool.I got to be an extra in the next Little Orphan Annie explosions.dam

Bodwulf-very cool pic OH MIGHTY ISIS!

@maddMonkk Thanks the Captain America DVD from the 70's made me remember all the DC Characters from that time. And this article leaves me wanting a Justice League film.

MARVEL=DC [frick] the haterz

I hope every movie next summer is great. It is shaping up to be a summer to remember with The Avengers, The Amazing Spider Man and The Dark Knight. From what I have seen from all of them I doubt we will be let down.
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 9:52 PM
Yay for Nolans CGI less film! i think this is gonna be EPIC!
and she looks down to this!
BlairCo - 9/18/2011, 10:00 PM
Nolan eating an ice-cream cone, that's something I want to see.
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 10:03 PM
@BlairCo might not be eating an ice cream yet....but looks like hes about to though...
SHHH - 9/18/2011, 10:06 PM
No CGI what more would you like??
SHHH - 9/18/2011, 10:13 PM
Nolan Has Something In Store... Tumblers Eveywhere. A Batwing.. I know Eveybody Wants a cAMPY BATMAN A Outfit Campy AS Hell.. Not Eveybody Wants The Same Thing....
SHHH - 9/18/2011, 10:15 PM
Your'e Understating Nolan and Company
SHHH - 9/18/2011, 10:22 PM
I mean Underestimating Nolan....
NeoBaggins - 9/18/2011, 10:23 PM
I've been mildly amused by the footage thus far, even though I'm certain Nolan will deliver again. But after seeing these last vieos and pieces the scope of the scene together, I'm thinking this is going to be mind blowing.

But hey, we'll see. =)
Macksimus - 9/18/2011, 10:34 PM
Marvel = DC...I like that.

I love them both, equally. In fact, I just got my copy of "Thor" and watched it again; great movie.
AsianVersionOfET - 9/18/2011, 10:37 PM
Those videos are the very definition of "expanding pants"
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 9/18/2011, 10:42 PM
@Intruder, so you know it is doomed? You have seen the finished product? You have read the script? You know the exact context of each leaked video and set pic? Amazing, well I guess there is no reason to see this movie because you said it was doomed. Sucks though, I was looking forward to this movie because I really enjoyed the last two. It is too bad that Christopher Nolan didn't make The Dark Knight Rises a quality film. I had such high hopes since his last two were great, and his last movie was just recently nominated for Best Picture. *Sigh* too bad. Thanks for letting us all know!
alucard365 - 9/18/2011, 10:45 PM
now that was awesome.
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 10:48 PM
@RidiculousFanBoy little do we know "Intruder" is actually Nolans evil half brother who hates him with a passion. hes read the script, knows how many times Nolan gets laid, what he eats, when he sleeps, and when he is gonna announce hes making the sequel to avengers cuz it turned out being an EPIC FAIL.
NeoBaggins - 9/18/2011, 10:50 PM
@Trude "Bad mind blowing"? Nah, just regular mind blowing. Thought about all the footage pieced together and in the context of the final edit. Good chance it will be a pretty sweet scene. That's all.

"But this film is doomed.. Trust me."

After you've gained our trust that the film is doomed, should we still go see it for ourselves?
thewolfx - 9/18/2011, 10:55 PM
as i wont go as for as the DC HATER know as intruder to say that sofar im not impressed at all by this movie

yes nolan is a great story teller but design wise its looking worrse the nthe last two movies .

imean really that thing in the sky is the excuse for a batwing?

anyways nomatter my complaints im sure this movie will be a block buster .
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 9/18/2011, 10:55 PM
haha @nolanite

@Intruder- I would say he is a great film maker and is looked upon by his peers to be a great film maker. It is one thing for us to sit here and say so and so sucks, but when you are recognized by people in the same industry as being great well, you may have talent. For example I hate Lebron James, but I know he is a great basketball player. I may not like the team he plays for, but I know that they are a good team. You may hate Nolan, but you have to admit that he at least makes quality films from a production standpoint. You may hate his movies, but you have to respect the fact that the movie going public and those in the movie industry praise him, and he is considered one of the best film makers working today.
tomtom12 - 9/18/2011, 11:02 PM
@thewolfx - I'm not impressed with your grammar.

alucard365 - 9/18/2011, 11:03 PM
Christopher Nolan is the greatest man that ever lived.
thewolfx - 9/18/2011, 11:05 PM

i am however impressed with your butthurt meter
Superman8 - 9/18/2011, 11:06 PM
so stoked for the Batwing
Moseephus - 9/18/2011, 11:08 PM
These damn pop ups are killing me!
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 11:13 PM
What about the set pics? Remember how much people hated these?

and we all know how that turned out! But thanks for your concern "Intruder". But ill go watch it and not talk shit or judge till after the credits roll.
OnePunchBaldy - 9/18/2011, 11:13 PM
This film is going out with a BANE!!!
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 11:17 PM
oh i will. no worries. :) and i know you will and ull look like a fool.
NOLANITE - 9/18/2011, 11:24 PM
nah im good, ill just call up 1 800 sav-ahoe and wipe some off your moms chin...right before we walk out of the theater! Ill say "Oh hey look Mrs. Intruder, i busted a Whedon all over your face!"
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 9/18/2011, 11:24 PM
@intruder- your making assumptions based on out of context unfinished set pics. Everyone thought they knew the plot to The Dark Knight, and knew that was going to suck because of leaked set pics, and despite your own personal feelings that movie did pretty well. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to the quality of this film. I liked the Heinz Field shoot, and I like that Bane released all the prisoners from black gate. I'm going to reserve judgment on the bat wing and catwoman until I see them in the movie.
