It’s not every day you see celebrities Morgan Freeman and Marion Cotillard wandering around Newark City Hall.
But that’s because it wasn’t business as usual Thursday: The city’s epicenter was turned into what appeared to be a mock infirmary and ghetto, with cots lining the hallways and people dressed as vagrants, starting fires and wielding machine guns.
The scene was like something out of a movie — a Batman movie.
“The Dark Knight Rises,” the third installment of the Caped Crusader franchise, started filming Thursday in downtown Newark for the first of its two-day shoot.
There’s much more on the filming, including photos, in the article available here.
