Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios’ latest Spider-Man movie is so good that you’d have to watch it hundreds of times to fully appreciate it. Or, at least, that’s what Ramiro Alanis thought, a Florida resident who ended up seeing the film not once, twice, but nearly 300 times. Alanis managed to watch Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times (a total runtime of 720 hours, or 30 days) and not go completely insane between December 16, 2021, and March 15, 2022, earning him a coveted new spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. The previous record was held by another lunatic named Arnaud Klein, who watched Kaamelott: First Installment, a French film centered around the Knights of the Round Table, a total of 204 times. Spider-Man: No Way Home has made nearly $2 billion worldwide since its initial release on December 15, 2021.

Florida man watches Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times to break record (Guinness Book of World Records)
In order for each viewing to be successfully counted towards the record total, the movie must be watched independently of any other activity. That means Ramiro couldn’t look at his phone, take a nap, or even go to the bathroom whilst the movie was running.
This is something Ramiro learned the hard way when he first achieved the record, as 11 of his viewings were disqualified due to bathroom breaks being taken.
The film must be watched to completion each time, including all of the credits. Ramiro was already used to doing this though, as every Marvel fan knows not to leave before the post-credits scene.
In addition to every ticket stub being submitted as evidence, a statement was taken from a theatre attendant after each viewing to confirm that Ramiro was watching the film throughout.
