The Dark Knight’s big explosion

Director Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige) just blew up a building in Chicago!

The old, vacant Brach’s Candy Factory in western Chicago was destroyed in rather spectacular fashion for a scene in Nolan’s sequel to Batman BeginsThe Dark Knight.

You can watch it happen here, and from a different angle here.

I found this via Hollywood Elsewhere.
