Dark Knight Rises special features clips pack on the pounds

  • Warner Bros. has posted a pair of clips from the upcoming Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Rises.

    The first was sent to MSN, and offers up some insight into the production of one of the most well-known CGI scenes in the film, namely the 'football stadium falling apart' clip. 

    Sent first to The Sun, the second is a bit less dynamic, but still revealing. Tom Hardy is usually a slim fellow, and so had to bulk up for the part of Bane. Here the stunt coordinator talks about what Hardy had to change about his physique, and a bit of the opinions of Hardy himself followed by the thoughts of Christian Bale, who played Batman opposite Hardy's role.

    In addition, the press material for the Blu-ray release contains a comprehensive list of all the features, including:

    • The Batmobile Documentary: Witness all five Batmobiles together for the first time in history. Dive deep into every aspect of the most awe-inspiring weapon in Batman’s arsenal as you journey through the birth and evolution of this technological marvel and cultural icon.
