The filming of the untitled 25th Bond movie was turned upside down: after Craig's injury to Jamaica in May, a blown out cascade hurt a member of the team.

EON Productions posted a statement on James Bond's official Twitter account about the incident at Pinewood Studios near London.

"When shooting a controlled explosion on the Bond 25 plateau today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the outside of the 007 scene," the statement said. "There was no injury on the board, but a team member off the stage was slightly injured."

Despite the two hiccups, the production company has previously said the film remains on track to meet the announced release date of April 8, 2020.
