James Bond’s No Time To Die Just Shattered A Guinness World Record, And Other Films Are Going To Have A Hard Time Beating It

Most movies claim to have explosive finales; however, Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie, No Time To Die, literally has such a moment. That scene is an even bigger deal now, as the climactic final set piece to the 25th 007 movie has just shattered a Guinness World Record, and other films are going to have a hard time beating it. 

Over on the official YouTube feed for the James Bond franchise, there are a lot of details given about the huge moment that saw yet another honor added to director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s end of an era. This is thanks to a video where special effects/stunt action coordinator Chris Corbould tells the story about how this new record came to be. In Mr. Corbould’s words, here’s how it all happened: 

While we were rigging the explosions, one of the guys from Event Horizon, the explosive company, came up to me and said, ‘Oh, Chris, you know that there is a different Guinness Book of Records award out there?’ Now I thought we had got that with Spectre, but apparently there was another one for ‘the most high explosives in one shot.’ The record was for 65 kilograms of high explosives in one shot. We had 140 [kilograms] in our one.
