Crew Blew Up Building on Dark Knight Chicago Set


A former candy factory in west side Chicago was totally demolished for an explosion scene in "The Dark Knight."

Conducting probably the most biggest stunt by far in filming highly-anticipated flick "The Dark Knight", crew for the superhero movie on Wednesday afternoon (August 29) demolished a building as part of an action scene on the Chicago set of this "Batman Begins" follow-up.

The premise used for the shooting was an abandoned four-story building located at Cicero Avenue in west side Chicago that previously served as Brach's Candy Factory, which used to produce coconut nougat and marshmallow confections. For the film, the plant, empty since 2003, was dressed to look like "Gotham General Hospital", complete with a large red cross and pharmacy sign.

Cameras began to roll to record the explosion shortly after local police blocked the avenue to traffic. Several flashes were then seen as the implosion started followed by the collapse of one side of the building. In just few seconds, flames shot up through the plant, creating a thick cloud of black smoke on the spot.

Documenting the whole process was MyFox Chicago which posted on its web site three videos of the implosion from three angles:
