'Spectre' Sets Guinness World Record for Largest Movie Explosion Ever

The follow-up to 'Skyfall' holds a world record for having the largest film stunt explosion which lasts more than 7.5 seconds.

AceShowbiz - "Spectre" may not be the biggest James Bond film ever, but it does set a new world record. The Guinness Book of World Records has announced that one of the scenes in the sequel to "Skyfall" includes the largest film stunt explosion of all time.

The massive explosion, which lasts more than 7.5 seconds, was filmed in Morocco. It takes place at the central part of the story in which [SPOILER ALERT!] Bond (%cDaniel Craig%) and Madeleine Swann (%cLea Seydoux%) are in the middle of a desert only to see a massive criminal facility explodes. According to Guinness' press release, the explosion spent 8,418 liters of kerosene along with 33 kilograms of powdered explosives.

"The James Bond movies are synonymous with pushing cinematic boundaries. The latest film, 'Spectre', has again captured the imagination of global cinemagoers, and this will certainly be due in part to the phenomenal stunts," said Guinness editor-in-chief Craig Glenday. "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."

Released on November 6, "Spectre" nabbed the second biggest Bond debut of all time, grossing $70.4 million at domestic box office. It surpassed "Quantum of Solace", which opened to $67.5 million in 2008, and came just behind "Skyfall", which launched to $88.4 million in 2012.
