The new James Bond film "Spectre" has broken a new record but not for box office grosses.

The film has received it's new certificate from the organization for the "Largest film stunt explosion" ever used in a movie, according to the Guinness World Records.

The official title holder is Academy Award winner Chris Corbould who created the explosive scene as Special Effects and Miniature Effects Supervisor for the spy thriller. 

The stunt took place in Erfoud, Morocco, and the blast had a total yield of 68.47 tonnes of TNT equivalent and was the result of detonating 8,418 liters of kerosene with 33 kg of powder explosives, the explosion lasted over 7.5 seconds total.

"The James Bond movies are synonymous with pushing cinematic boundaries," said Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records editor-in-chief. "The latest film, Spectre, has again captured the imagination of global cinema goers, 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.”
