Visual effects wizard Chris Corbould talks about the biggest boom
By MI6 Staff
If you thought the record for the largest explosion captured for a motion picture was held by 'SPECTRE', you would be correct. But it turns out there is another twist on the 'biggest boom' for a movie record, and visual effects supremo Chris Corbould smashed that for the follow-up.
'No Time To Die' is the holder of a new Guinness World Records title. The film set the record for the most high-explosives detonated in a single film take, with a total of 136.4 kg of TNT equivalent used in shooting the climatic finale.
The record was achieved on Salisbury Plain in England on 8th March 2019.
