Via Subaruwrxfan on Set: "Talked to someone, they've been filming since 6:30 this morning. Anne Hathaway is in prison outfit! Got some sweet footage of the tumblers driving on the streets! Still watching the filming but will try to not keep everybody waiting too long!Lots of fake news reporters and crews out. Prisoners practicing throwing punches on the steps against guys in black basketball shorts and white shirts. Like 12 couples all doing the same practicing."

Report from "On 41st Street between Butler and Foster streets, director Christopher Nolan was on-site to oversee the film's first day of shooting in Pittsburgh. Under his watchful eye, dozens of cargo-short clad staffers converted picturesque row house No. 170 into the home of a Gotham City judge, played by Brett Cullen. Piles of fake snow dotted the sidewalks, and black canvas drapes and heavy-duty screens blotted out the sun to create a dreary winter backdrop. Wind and dust machines were on hand to create a storm, even though Pittsburgh skies threatened their own as the afternoon wore on. Gary Oldman's police Commissioner Jim Gordon ran up the house's steps in take after take to alert the judge to dirty dealings and increasing violence in Gotham. Well-meaning Wayne Enterprises board member Miranda Tate, played by Marion Cotillard, came to the judge's house in a scene with Commissioner Gordon and Detective Jim Blake, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Ms. Cotillard braved the heat in leather boots and a navy wool peacoat, which she quickly shed at the end of the take, while Mr. Gordon-Levitt was lucky enough to film in shirtsleeves."

The Dark Knight Rises will be shooting in Pittsburgh five days a week until August 21st, when the production will move on to additional locations. Following the Pittsburgh shoot, the cast and crew will move on to New York City and Los Angeles. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012. Images captured by Subaruwrxfan [via CBM].
