Batman stunt team flips a big rig end over end!

I’m still out of my mind with excitement over the MASSIVE publicity stunt Warner Bros. pulled in San Diego yesterday that ended with the revealing of the first official teaser trailer for next summer’s Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight.

You can read about it here, and you can go right here to watch and download the teaser! It’s all diaogue, but the words will knock your socks off.


Fox Chicago caught this amazing video of the Dark Knight stunt team flipping an entire big rig end over end in our great nation’s windiest of cities.


And then! And then!

Our good friends over at Hollywood Chicago got this jaw-dropping aerial view of the same stunt.

If you scroll down on Hollywood Chicago’s page a bit, you’ll see a photo of the big rig pre-flipping. Take special note of the big metal “teeth” on the front of the rig’s cab that were used to grip into the ground and keep it vertical during the flip.


And then click right here to take a tour of all the news and photos I’ve compiled here so far, including pictures of Christian Bale in the film’s new Batman suit and Heath Ledger as The Joker.

The Dark Knight glides on wings of memory cloth into the theater near you on July 18, 2008!

And even if that were tomorrow, it would never be soon enough.
