The film's producer Barbara Broccoli and actors Daniel Craig and Léa Seydoux were on hand in Beijing, China, Tuesday, November 10 to accept the certificate on behalf of Oscar winner Chris Corbould, the movie's Special Effects and Miniature Effects Supervisor.
The scene was filmed June 2015 in Erfoud, Morocco and used 8418 liters of fuel and 33 kg of explosives, according to a release.
