AceShowbiz - A Florida man has perhaps proven to be the biggest Marvel fan. Ramiro Alanis has reclaimed his world record for the most cinema productions attended of the same film after watching "Spider-Man: No Way Home" 292 times.
To set the Guinness World Record, Ramiro spent 720 hours, which equals to 30 days, watching the latest Spider-Man film in theaters between December 16, 2021 and March 15, 2022. He sat through five back-to-back screenings each day during the first few weeks.
It wasn't all fun as it sounds since the long late-night viewings of the film caused Alanis to suffer from headaches, which he said were the most challenging part of the record attempt. He also had to hold his pee long enough since the terms of the record did not allow any other activities performed while watching the movie.
The terms of the record stated the "movie must be watched independently of any other activity." This meant Alanis wasn't allowed to take bathroom breaks, snag a quick nap or even check his phone while watching the film.
Still, Alanis was able to complete the record while balancing family and work obligations. He revealed that he spent around $3,400 on movie tickets in total over the three months it took to set the record, which he playfully documented on Twitter.
Alanis credited his late grandmother Juany as his biggest motivation to break the record. "She was my #1 supporter and I want to remain the record holder," he said in a new release by Guiness.
Alanis previously broke the record for the most cinema productions attended of the same film in 2019 after watching "Avengers: Endgame" 191 times. However, in 2021, Arnaud Klein snagged the title by watching "Kaamelott: First Instalment" 204 times.
To anyone thinking about overtaking Alanis' record, he advised them to "think twice before attempting it."
