While there are many reasons to see a movie, especially one as amazing as Avengers: Endgame, breaking a world record might not be on the top of your list. But it was for Agustin Alanis, who now holds the number one spot for the most times someone has seen the same movie in theaters.
Endgame has only been in theaters for a month and a half, making Alanis' feat all the more impressive. According to CinemaBlend, fan Anthony Mitchell previously held the record, as he saw Avengers: Infinity War 103 times in the theater when it premiered in 2018. When Alanis tied with Mitchell on Sunday, he went to Twitter to share the news.

Today I tie this legend @NemRaps with 103 views watching the same film in theaters. You sparked this to be done, so I honor you brother.#avengersendgame @Avengers @ChrisEvans @Russo_Brothers @Kevfeige @RobertDowneyJr #tigrevengador @louisde2 #Avengers https://t.co/VVBVlhR53b pic.twitter.com/OFJYeRrTk5
Each time Alanis has gone to the theater, he logs a visit by taking a picture of himself with his ticket and a staff member of the theater, if he can. Just to make sure he beat Mitchell's record, Alanis logged his 110th viewing.

They are SHIELD...Well, actually Hydra. But, we didn't know that yet.#avengersendgame #TigreVengador @RobertDowneyJr @ChrisEvans @Russo_Brothers @Avengers @jimmyfallon pic.twitter.com/wYzak4gnGR
Endgame is now hard on the heels of Avatar for the highest grossing film of all time. The 2009 James Cameron film holds the record at $2.78 billion worldwide, while Endgame is at $2.73 billion. Just like Alanis did, Endgame has its own world record to shoot for.
