Movie FX Blast Blows Out Windows In Hamburg.

A special effects explosion, intended to blow up a few crates, wound up blowing out the windows of at least 50 shops and houses in Hamburg, Germany, the online British entertainment publication Ananova reported today (Monday).

A spokesman for the film crew was quoted as saying, At least we got it all on film -- it was really spectacular." Ananova said that experts had underestimated the force of the blast. It did not give the name of the film company, the name of the movie, or the date when the explosion occurred.
