You’ve seen Anne Hathaway astride the popular, two-wheeled Bat conveyance — the Batpod. Now watch her stunt double demolish a movie camera (IMAX?) while filming an action scene for the third movie in director Christopher Nolan’s Bat-trilogy. Oof. No breakfast burrito for her.
Movie cameras are mainly leased from companies like Panavision, which owns all of its product, so judging the price of the crushed caped crusader-recorder is no easy task. (Naturally, it’s insured.) But if Nolan’s shooting B-man entirely in IMAX, the camera’s replacement could top $US300,000.
All together now: Why didn’t you TURN?
