A Florida man has reclaimed his Guinness World Record title for most movie productions of the same film.
Ramiro Alanis, of the Tampa suburb of Riverview, watched “Spider-Man: No Way Home” 292 times between Dec. 16, 2021 and March 15, 2022, according to Guinness.
In a video he posted on Twitter on March 15, Alanis can be seen at various stages at the XScape Cinema in Riverview.
Factoring in the length of the film, which is 2 hours and 28 minutes long – plus upcoming attractions and the inevitable commercials before the main feature – Alanis sat in a theater for 720 hours, or 30 days.
This is the second time Alanis has owned the Guinness brand. In 2019, he watched “Avengers: Endgame” 191 times, but that record was surpassed in 2021 by Arnaud Klein, from Reims, France, who watched “Kaamelott: First Installment” 204 times. Alanis actually watched the Avengers movie 202 times, but 11 views were disqualified because he took bathroom breaks, Guinness said.
“It may sound harsh, but bladder control is an important skill to have when attempting records,” Guinness said in a 2021 press release.
Alanis’ record-breaking debut effort surpassed the mark of Australian Joanne Connor, who watched “Bohemian Rhapsody” 108 times at the start of 2019, Guinness said.
The Guinness rules for achieving the record are clear. A person should watch the movie regardless of any other activity. In other words, no scrolling on his cell phone, no bathroom breaks (he’s already learned that lesson), and no naps during the movie. Additionally, the film must be watched until its completion, including the credits. Alanis, as a fan of Marvel movies, already knew to leave since there are always post-credits scenes.
His attendance had to be verified with a ticket stub and a statement from a theater attendant after each viewing, according to Guinness.
For the first few weeks of her final attempt, Alanis watched five consecutive screenings each day, CNN reported.
Alanis didn’t count how much money he spent on tickets during his recent record-breaking run, but he estimated it at around $3,400, according to Guinness.
Alanis said he pursued the record to honor his late grandmother, Juany, Guinness said.
“She was my #1 supporter and I want to remain the record holder,” Alanis said in the press release. “If anyone tries to break my record again, I want them to think twice before trying.”
Alanis said he loved all three actors who played Spider-Man and even met Tom Holland, but said his favorite version of the character was “Andrew Garfield and his redemption arc”.
