Florida-based personal trainer Ramiro Alanis just broke a Guinness World Record by watching “Avengers: Endgame” in a movie theater more times than any other person.

  • Specifically, he broke the record for “The Most Cinema Productions Attended – Same Film.” Each viewing was in a movie theater. It’s unclear how many movie theaters he watched the film in, or if he had to buy private showings because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • He watched “Endgame” 191 times in 94 days, beginning on April 26, 2019.

Alanis celebrated the achievement with a tweet, saying, “I’m Officially Amazing!!!”

Alanis told the Guinness World Record that the achievement took a huge toll on his social life, his family and his general well-being.

  • “The most difficult part about this attempt was giving up my social life with my family, the gym (I lost 16 pounds of muscle) and managing my work hours and screening times at the theaters.” 
  • He said the support I got from family, friends, managers and staff from the theaters I visited” and the support from fans helped him see through to the end of the road.
  • So what does he suggest if you’re trying to break a record? Well, “plan accordingly to your record attempt and prepare yourself as much as you can, physically and mentally, all things are possible.”

I tried something similar years ago — watching the entire 22-film Marvel Cinematic Universe in one sitting at the Marvel movie marathon. That took about 61 hours. This guy spend 573 hours watching “Endgame.” That’s essentially nine Marvel movie marathons — of the same movie — in 94 days. Wow.
