The budget for “Batman: The Dark Knight Rises” might have just jumped up another six figures — because last Friday, Catwoman‘s stunt double BARRELED through a super-expensive IMAX camera … and TMZ has the crushing footage.
It’s unclear who messed up — the stunt-double or the cameraman — but either way, the camera appeared to be blown to smithereens.
It was all shot outside some building at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh — which, we’re told, is supposed to be Gotham City Hall in the movie.
Thankfully, no one was hurt — and with a budget of $250 MILLION … a broken camera’s just a drop in the bucket.
Sources close to production tell us both the camera and the cameraman were not injured during the incident — but if you look closely, you can SEE camera shrapnel … and fixing those things ain’t cheap!
A rep for Warner Bros. had no comment.
