PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The crescendo is building toward the release of this summer’s most anticipated movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Warner Bros. Pictures released the third trailer online. It focuses on the fate of Batman and the insurmountable threat of the evil villain, Bane.
In addition, we are seeing a little more of Pittsburgh in this newest trailer, including a view of the city from above pans from the top of U.S. Steel Tower toward the Allegheny River and a carefully choreographed fight scene filmed on the steps of the Mellon Institute in Oakland sizzles on the screen.
The plastic snow pellets that swirled around the combatants look absolutely genuine.
Of course, no Batman film would be complete without the chalk-white bat symbol. Now, those “Batwings” are showing up around the world as part of Warner Bros.’ ongoing promotion, including 10 locations in Pittsburgh.
KDKA-TV found one taped to a flower pot on Seventh Street.
Downtown streets and fake snow were suited for a muscular tank called the Tumbler. It was a hot day in August when spectators donned heavy coats for a winter scene at Heinz Field. Hines Ward runs with the ball as explosions erupt all around him.
All in a day’s work in “Hollywood East.”
