There’s a point in the 007 movie Spectre where Blofeld’s base is blown sky high, with Bond and lady friend making their escape just in time.

While none of that will be particularly surprising for anybody with a bit of a Bond education, what may surprise is that this particular explosion gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the biggest explosion in film history.

To think, it only took 2,223 gallons of fuel and 72lbs of explosives. Needless to say – and luckily for the producers – the Moroccan desert stunt was all caught in one take.
