The Daniel Craig starrer “Spectre” might not be as successful as its predecessor “Skyfall” but it has still received accolades. The film has been recently awarded the title of “Largest Film Stunt Explosion” by Guinness World Records at a press con in Beijing. The scene is a crucial part of the spy thriller and is one of the epic scenes of the whole franchise which will be remembered for its on-screen appearance. Read on to find out more about record title featuring Daniel Craig and Léa Seydoux in the scene.
“Spectre” is a reprise of director Sam Mendes and is said to be one of the most expensive films of the bond franchise spending about $300 million and the outcome of the huge budget is quite evident. As per Guinness’ it is reportedly said that the detonation sequence was shot in Erfoud, Morocco which used 8,418 lot of kerosene and 33 kg of explosives. The explosion took place in the duration of approximately 7.5 seconds which look extremely grand on the big screen, as stated by Screenrant.
The pivotal explosion scene is created by Academy Award winner Chris Corbould who is well known in film industry for his special effects job. Producer Barbara Broccoli and “Spectre” lead actors received record certificate on behalf of Corbould who did not join the event in Beijing.
This is a major breakthrough for “Spectre” in China especially as the movie is about to release there on the weekend. The Guinness Record is definitely a major puller for the audience as it has come just a little ahead of release.
Though “Spectre” would certainly not be able to match up the business of “Skyfall” in any way, this record still would help the movie to gain some commercial success.
