A whole cadre of behind-the-scenes set photos and videos have emerged from Christopher Nolan's Pittsburgh-based The Dark Knight Rises set. Up first are three videos featuring the Batmobile Tumblers in action, followed by photos of Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, and director Christopher Nolan himself shooting scenes, along with detailed information about the shoot.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette posted a detailed description of the scenes being shot.

"Piles of fake snow dotted the sidewalks, and black canvas drapes and heavy-duty screens blotted out the sun to create a dreary winter backdrop. Wind and dust machines were on hand to create a storm, even though Pittsburgh skies threatened their own as the afternoon wore on.

Gary Oldman's police Commissioner Jim Gordon ran up the house's steps in take after take to alert the judge to dirty dealings and increasing violence in Gotham.

Well-meaning Wayne Enterprises board member Miranda Tate, played by Marion Cotillard, came to the judge's house in a scene with Commissioner Gordon and Detective Jim Blake, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Ms. Marion Cotillard braved the heat in leather boots and a navy wool peacoat, which she quickly shed at the end of the take, while Mr. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was lucky enough to film in shirtsleeves."
