How That Football Field Was Blown Up In The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises was pretty incredible for many reasons. But one of the most jaw-dropping bits was when Bane blew-up an American football stadium right at the start of a game. Here’s how they actually did it.

Raised turf with holes for people to fall into, pyrotechnics galore, a myriad of stunt personnel — and then literally months spent in the visual effects studio. Worth it in the end, though, because that scene genuinely made the movie. There’ll be more where that came from when the DVD lands on December 3rd, and judging by that clip, it might actually be worth watching the special features for once.
