An on-set controlled explosion in the upcoming James Bond film went out of control as a stage was destroyed at Pinewood Studios and left one person injured.

This is yet another addition to the series of setbacks faced by the production. Right from Danny Boyle exiting the project over creative differences to Daniel Craig's ankle injury in May, these setbacks delayed the release of Bond 25. Initially slated for an October release, the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directorial, also starring Rami Malek, Ana De Armas, Naomie Harris, and Ralph Fiennes, will now release in April 2020.
