SPECTRE breaks the record for Largest Film Stunt Explosion

10 November, 2015

SPECTRE has been awarded a Guinness World Records title for the Largest Film Stunt Explosion.

The explosion was filmed in Erfoud, Morocco and used 8418 litres of fuel and 33kg of explosives.

The explosion of Oberhauser lair in the film is very impressive, even more so when you realise that there is no CGI used to create the shot of the explosion and Bond and Swann.

Commenting on the announcement, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers of SPECTRE, said, “It is absolutely tremendous that the Guinness World Records have recognised Chris Corbould’s incredible work in SPECTRE in which he created the largest explosion ever in film history."

Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday added: "The James Bond movies are synonymous with pushing cinematic boundaries. The scene featuring the world's largest film stunt explosion is spectacular and will live long in the memory as one of the outstanding moments in the Bond franchise."
