Hong Kong residents have been warned to expect a week of noisy evenings as a low-flying aircraft and helicopter film scenes for The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins, according to NineMSN. Thousands of letters have been sent out by the film's production company telling residents that a helicopter and a C130 aircraft will swoop low over downtown areas to film the city's evening skyline.

According to the letter, the production company will do everything it can to "restore tranquillity ... as early as possible."

The movie will be filmed in Hong Kong from November 6 to 12. Stars Christian Bale and Morgan Freeman will both be on-set for the shoot. IMAX cameras will be on-set for the shoot as well, a first for Hong Kong.

A major outdoor stunt for The Dark Knight is to be filmed at the International Finance Centre (IFC) complex while the Peninsula Hotel will be used for other scenes.
