1. SPECTRE explosion sets world record

    SPECTRE has officially set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Film Stunt Explosion. Barbara Broccoli, Daniel Craig and Léa Seydoux collected the award in Beijing on behalf of special effects supervisor Chris Corbould. The explosion was filmed near Erfoud in Morocco, and used 8,418 litres of fuel and 33kg of explosives.

    Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli 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.”

  4. Christopher Wood dies aged 79

    According to a tweet from Roger Moore’s official twitter account (@sirrogermoore) it seems that Christopher Wood, script author of The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, as well as author of the novelisations to these two, has died, aged 79. While the exact amount and nature of his influence on the scripts of these productions starring Roger Moore remain a topic of debate for fans and cineastes for years, there can be little doubt that his film novelisations still remain favourites with many fans of the literary James Bond; a remarkable achievement in its own right.

    Christopher Wood was a prolific writer, both under his real name and under a number of pseudonyms, and he also worked on the scripts for a number of adaptations of his ‘Confessions’ series. Another noteworthy work of his is the script for the 1985 Hollywood production Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.

    Team and members of hereby wish to express our sincere condolences to Mr Wood’s family and friends.

  6. ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ official video released

    The official music video for the SPECTRE theme track ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ has just been released (just under two hours later than the planned time of 0:07 in the UK, apparently prompting “a lot of angry emails going round”). It features new footage from the film interspersed with Sam Smith singing at various locations, including what appears to be Museo della Civilta Romana, a museum in Rome which is also the setting for a key scene in the movie itself.
