Morgan Freeman & Marion Cotillard Film Scenes for The Dark Knight Rises in Newark

Newark City Hall today was the site for the new Batman film as scenes were filmed involving lots of gunfire, and you might be surprised at whom is holding the guns.



The city's epicenter (Newark City Hall) was turned into what appeared to be a mock infirmary and ghetto, with cots lining the hallways and people dressed as vagrants, starting fires and wielding machine guns.

On the first floor, in the rotunda, wooden chairs were set up in rows, facing west, towards the front of the building. Very few people were seen in that area. On the second floor, crews had set up a makeshift first-aid area, surrounded by cots.

On the third floor, Freeman and Cotillard were seen filming a scene. Freeman, who plays Lucius Fox, was sitting on a chair in the hallway, while Cotillard, who plays Miranda Tate, was two feet away, leaning against a rail, overlooking the second floor. Freeman wore a black suit with a purple shirt. Cotillard was in a blue shirt with black pants.

Dozens of extras were seen on every floor, wearing ragged sweaters, trench coats and vests. Some carried fake weapons.

A letter given to people who entered the building warned of "contained fires" and loud noises, including simulated explosions and gun shots. - Patch.com



At the Military Park Light Rail station, a sign that pointed pedestrians to Trinity Cathedral had been edited. "Gotham Museum" and "Gotham Library," were printed in the same font. "Gotham Transit Authority" also seamlessly blended into a sign at the entryway to the rail line, both mentions easy to miss if you weren't looking for them. - nj.com


Lots of gunfire inside. There is some kind of press conference held, league mercs storm the place. A gun fight breaks out. Gary oldman and Juno temple. Gary has been walking back and forth like a boss. - mchekhov, www.nolanfans.com

Juno Temple spotted? Well that is odd, she stated a couple weeks ago that she was done filming. A believe the source is good, but I'll chalk it up as speculation until a few more people chirp in on this sighting, but it's worth noting. Next, I'm dying to know what the press conference is being held for. Any guesses?
