James Bond films are known for a number of things, including the impressive explosions. While they all have explosions, the latest Bond film, Spectre, is taking things to a new level, and has claimed the Guinness World Record for the largest film stunt explosion in history.

The explosion itself used a massive 2,224 gallons of fuel and 73 pounds of explosives, was filmed in Erfound, Morocco and took place after Bond and his lover, Madeleine Swann, escape from the Spectre lair.

Previously, the record was held by the 1994 film Blown Away, which starred Tommy Lee Jones and Jeff Bridges.

The record is officially held by Chris Corbould, who was the Special Effects and Miniature Effects Supervisor on the movie. The explosion, however, was anything but miniature, lasting for over 7.5 seconds.

James Bond films have had a long history of breaking records. "Writing's on the Wall," by Sam Smith, for example, was the first Bond film theme song to debut at number one, with two previous themes debuting at number two on the UK's Official Singles Chart.

As far as stunts go, a James Bond film also has the record for the largest breakaway glass structure smashed by a car, which measured 257.36 square feet and was conducted by Rocky Taylor, a British stuntman. The car was driven at 50 mph before it sped up a pipe ramp and smashed through the glass structure. The record for the most cannon rolls in a car was also achieved in a Bond film, earned by Adam Kirley for the 2006 film Casino Royale.
