'Dark Knight' Stunt Fail

Catwoman CRUSHES Camera

8/9/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808_cat_woman_vid_ex_launchThe 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.

They Should Look For A Better CatWoman with better talent Like Kate Beckinsale or Milla Jovovich

Sorry Guys. The camera man is at fault. If you watch carefully, he steps right into the stunt woman.

Stunt Double hit the camera.

She loses control of the bike and it swerves into camera.

No room for error though.
I mean it's not a regular motorcycle...dont fault her (or her glorious ass!)
