Chicago 2 TDK Shoot Report

Click for the Warner Bros. Online

The following is a fairly "spoiler-free" report of TDK shoot in Chicago from our insider deluxe, "A.P." FYI: Some of the report is blacked-out to hide the slightest of spoilers.

Word has it that Nolan and company screened a 15 minute trailer last night last night before shooting began.

(Highlight to read) Some cool scenes last night involved The Joker using some sort of rocket launcher to take out the lead Police Car, which blew up and flipped over with a stunt guy driving. Looks like they did a few rehearsals and then shot it twice, the first time I don't think they got the shot they were looking for cause the car flipped over the second time.

Also, The Batmobile was up taking on a garbage truck on Lower Wacker (Easily seen and parked all in a row on lower Wacker were 4 Batmobiles for last nightís shoot. Very cool, all shiny and black. You could see the guys working on them from across the river).

Itís going around that The Batpod will be in action soon with a Batman double riding it. There will be some generic footage shot with the pod weaving in and out of traffic.

A lot of Batmobile stuff of late -- various chase scenes with SWAT and GCP and scenes with the Joker filmed this week. No scenes with Batman at all.

(Highlight to read) The big scene coming up has to do with a car and water. You'll just have to wait for the movie on this one!
