Singapore – One of the most iconic scenes in the last of the Batman trilogies, The Dark Knight Rises, was the image of a football field, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, being swallowed into the ground. This scene of destruction and despair captured the helplessness of the audience as the characters in the movie fall one by one into a deep abyss. With the help of the latest technologies and software, married with creative expertise, the visual effects team for The Dark Knight Rises was able to spare the real Heinz Field the theatrics, while achieving seamless imagery.
