#SPECTRE Enters The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS @GWR

SPECTRE,” THE 24TH JAMES BOND ADVENTURE, AWARDED A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ TITLE FOR LARGEST FILM STUNT EXPLOSION

In addition to breaking box office records across the globe, SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond adventure, has been awarded a Guinness World Records™ title for the Largest Film Stunt Explosion, it was announced today at a press conference in Beijing, China. SPECTRE, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, opens in China this week.

Producer Barbara Broccoli and stars Daniel Craig and Léa Seydoux – who appear in the scene – accepted the record certificate on behalf of the official title holder, Academy Award® winner Chris Corbould, who served as Special Effects and Miniature Effects Supervisor on SPECTRE.

The incredible explosion was filmed for a pivotal scene in the film and took place on June 29, 2015 in Erfoud, Morocco and used 8418 litres of fuel and 33kg of explosives.

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 latest film, Spectre, has again captured the imagination of global cinemagoers, and this will certainly be due in part to the phenomenal stunts. 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.” The Largest Film Stunt Explosion is an early front runner for inclusion in Guinness World Records 2017, out next year. The 2016 edition is currently on sale.

ABOUT “SPECTRE”
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTREis produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. The screenplay is by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth, with a story by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day.
