Apparently, They Actually Kinda Destroyed A Football Field in The Dark Knight Rises

Posted By on Mon, Nov 26, 2012 at 11:31 AM

Sure, they didn't completely tear apart Pittsburgh's Heinz Field for one of the largest special effects sequences in The Dark Knight Rises (though as a bitter Arizona Cardinals fan, I wouldn't have been that upset,) but it appears that the film's special effects team actually used practical special effects in the scene where a Gotham football field collapses.

Check out the video below from MSN for a look at the movie magic.

I'm not sure what it says about me that the most nagging, unrealistic thing about that shot to me is that it has Hines Ward returning a kickoff for a touchdown.
