AMC to host 31-hour Marvel movie marathon before Avengers: Infinity War
March 14, 20182 min read
Have you ever been watching a Marvel film and thought, "Man, I wish I could watch 31 hours of this non-stop to see if my brain would still work afterwards." Well, AMC is conducting a new research study that will allow you to do just that. In an effort to find the very limits of our ability to binge watch something the theater will be screening all of Marvel's films back-to-back, culminating, we assume, in the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War.
What does 31 hours of Marvel include? No TV, obviously, but that should be all 18 movies from the company, starting with Iron Man. AMC started doing this back in 2015 with the release of Age of Ultron, and even back then it seemed ridiculous, but now it's verging on some sort of Russian sleep-deprivation study. If you committed to doing this you'd be awake for more than a day, and sitting in a theater for nearly all of that. Of course, if it's like the previous marathon, then you'll be able to get up and leave, but leaving is for the weak and your family would be shamed for generations.
Tickets aren't on sale yet for the marathon, and it looks like AMC isn't giving up much info yet. We can assume the Marathon will start around 29 hours before the first screenings of Infinity War on April 27, but we don't know which theaters will host this deadly gauntlet of comic book action.
So, who is up for it? I mean take-days-off-work, drink-six-cans-of-Red-Bull, and wish-your-family-goodbye up for it?
