Definitely one of the most memorable scenes in The Dark Knight Rises was the stadium explosion, which announced the arrival of Bane to Gotham's citizens. Thanks to a featurette on the DVD/Blu-ray of the movie, we can see how that incredible sequence was created. Paul Franklin (visual effects supervisor) explains that it took months to weave all the elements together for a shot that lasted only a few seconds on screen. Franklin was in charge of the massive logistics of putting the scene together, and he explains how he and his team did it in the video below.
The DVD/Blu-ray of The Dark Knight Rises goes on sale December 4. FYI - you can pre-order your copy now in the Capes on Film store.
