An avid Avengers: Endgame fan, Agustin Alanis, 30, of Riverview, Florida has watched the blockbuster film 116 times in a quest for a world record.
Alanis is gunning for the Guinness World Record for “most cinema productions attended — same film,” and he’s in good shape to do that. On Thursday night, he sat through viewing 116 with no end in sight. His goal is 200 viewings, or close to it.
“I wasn’t planning to try and break (the world record) to begin with,” Alanis said. “But I had watched it every day since it came out for two weeks, and just like the movie shattered records, I decided to do it as well.”
Alanis said he’s a Marvel fan who’s watched 2014’s Captain America: Winter Soldier numerous times at home, and he knew he could stand the repetition — at least for a Marvel film.”I don’t think I would try it with another movie,” he admitted.
The current record is held by Tony “Nem” Mitchell when he was setting the record with Avengers: Infinity War. When Mitchell spoke to me, he had seen the film a mere 45 times, but he went on to watch it a total of 103 times, earning himself an invite to the premiere of Avengers: Endgame.
