Before you jumped to the conclusion that all has gone to the deep end at Wall Street in New York City, rest assure this was only a film set and all participants were paid extras. Armed with fake guns, pyrotechnics, and against a factious snowy backdrop, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy (as Bane), Matthew Modine, along with 1,000-plus actors occupied Wall Street for an epic battle scene between thugs and Gotham City Police Department in the upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises. While there were concern at first over the film set’s close proximity to the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protest just a few streets away. Everything went without a hitch during the production two weekends ago. The crew will film in other locations across New York City for the duration of this month. And to see how well the film come together in the end, The Dark Knight Rises will be shown in theaters near you this coming July.
