Destruction Of Skyfall Lodge

Bond's family home is destroyed

He never liked the place anyway… today’s clip is the destruction of Bond’s ancestral home in Skyfall (2012). Special effects supervisor Chris Corbould said: “We built a third scale model of the house and two-third-scale models of the helicopter.”  The scene was devised with two explosions. A small explosion that creates debris which knocks the helicopter off course and sends it careening into the house. The fuel tanks then ignite, causing a massive second explosion. “We used 150 stacks of dynamite and a couple of hundred gallons of fuel for that one,” said Corbould proudly.
