Dark Knight Rises Starts Filming In Pittsburgh!

Christian Bale DKR Pittsburgh

Inconvenience to the city or not, this is actually a really spectacular thing for them — and hopefully it'll boost the city into being even more of a major film location!

Christian Bale sat down for a press conference and talked a little bit about the city's hospitality… and the city's heat right now.

"Well, I hope that all of you guys are going to feel cooler ’cause of the fake snow, I certainly won't be — stuck in that rubber suit all the time.

"I've never been to Pittsburgh before," he told a room packed with writers, photographers and select guests of the Pittsburgh Film Office. "There will be fighting on the streets a great deal. Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit and hospitality ahead of time, and we'll try and stay out of your hair as much as possible and hopefully leave with good memories for everybody."

We can't even imagine what it'd be like to be in that suit with all that heat!

Christopher Nolan also took some time to thank the city. From all this thanking, which we feel goes beyond common courtesy, we get the feeling that some crazy shizz is about to go down in the city for some action sequences!

Can't wait to see it! Feel free to send the dailies to us, ha!

    Awesome! I live in Pittsburgh, and it really is a great city so I'm glad it's getting some publicity. A lot of films have been shot there recently, it seem to be a good location if you're looking to shoot in a nice looking city but can't afford NYC.

    I've always said this city is Gotham… Especially in Winter when it snows and the sun doesn't shine for MONTHS. Just go look at AGH or the Cath of Learning at night when it's snowing and you'll know it too. On a related note, it's gonna take forever to get home. They filmed that sparkly warewolf kidnapping movie here, and it took an extra hour to get home because we had to wait for them to finish a shot. The locals were not too happy about the Garden Theater being put to use again, though not for porn this time.
