Default Re: Pic of Batmobile in Chicago + Filming Dates!

UPDATED
desmodus01 aka iDima has removed the pic and all the blog entries on Batman from his site. Did WB ninjas get him?
__________________________________________________ _______________________________
Found the following on desmodus01's journal. Right next to his office they're building sets and props for the TDK shoot in Chicago plus 10 Batmobiles are been stored there as well! He managed to get a pic of one.

From desmodus01:

Batman

mood: giddy

So... at the risk of having a bunch of rabid fanboys run down my office building... I'll tell you the kick ass news.

Maybe photos later as well...

My company moved into this new office building this past December. It's an industrial type place with lots of space. One floor. Warehouse type deal. Well the 3 similar offices next door were completely empty. Until a month or two ago that is.

You'll remember that Batman begins was filmed on location in Chicago. Because I live/work in Chicago I recognized most of the places the batmobile drove through... even through the extra CGI.

The company that moved in next door... does the props for the new Batman movie that's currently being filmed here in Chicago.

And just a few minutes ago, I stood one foot away from the batmobile.

It was ****ing awesome.

My friend took some pictures. In one of them... you can see my car standing right next the batmobile.

How bad-ass is that? I'll tell you how bad-ass it is... VERY ****ING BAD-ASS!!!

And what's cooler is that they have like 10 of these in the warehouse. TEN BATMOBILES!!!

I guess they're going to destroy some of them or something. Their building sets and props all day. I can hear them through the walls of my office.

It's very distracting, but in a cool way.

I'll write some more if I hear/see anything.

Ciao for now!

The Dark Knight: An Update

mood: hungry

So... today, my next door work neighbors, aka the guys who are building sets/props for the Chicago portion of The Dark Knight (BATMAN Begins sequel) are having auditions right here for some part in the movie. I see all these guys show up with suitcases and the like. Must be a lawyer part. Or some extra work.

This is so cool.

I would... if I had a window.

But regardless... it's freakin cool.

I saw the other day they working on the batmobile again. Had the hood up and everything. Man is it great... maybe Christopher Nolan will show up. Or Bale... or or or... Heath Ledger. In full Joker costume...

UPDATE
The following is completely unconfirmed but this person who looks like he works in the film industry had the following on his site (Not linking to it for reasons already stated) It looks like it's for TDK and Michael Caine did say that Los Angeles was one of the filming locations.Could be wrong though and it might be for something else.Take it with a grain of salt. Thats why i'm not starting a new thread on it.

I believe the appropriate netizen term is - OMFG! Retro, you PWN!

Hmm, looks like they are making some changes to the Tumbler - as, it looks smaller but that might just be me.

Hmm, from the looks of it guess the Batmobile won't be drastically different from Begins after all. Heck, it pretty much looks the same as it did before.

Yeah, and with 10 of 'em, sounds like there won't likely be a change at all in the movie...

Btw = Retroman, I had noticed the "shooting dates" for Rorys First Kiss on the chicago film board, but rumor has it that they shoot in chicago for a little bit in April, go to Cardigan till June and then come back. So if the Batmobiles are there now, shouldn't there be shooting dates for next month?

PS: Miranda, what country is that?

Are they supposed to be shooting in London at some point? So you won't be "a whole country away" for long.

I don't think the body work has been put on it yet to minimize damage on transport.

Either that or Bats has made some modifications to make it faster and more lightweight.

I like that idea but I think it's more likely it just looks bigger onscreen.

Still, I think they might be making some modifications to it. Which rocks.
