‘The Dark Knight Rises’ arrives in Newark, NJ

The Dark Knight Rises took a short trip from New York City to Newark, New Jersey for filming today. The cast and crew will be in NJ tomorrow, before heading back to the Big Apple. Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman were the only actors spotted on set, NJ Patch has the full report:

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.
