Suresh Joachim of Toronto and Claudia Wavra of Germany claim to have broken the world record for continuous movie watching, after seeing 57 films in 123 hours in a plastic-glass house in New York's Times Square.
A Guinness World Records spokesman said it appears the nondynamic duo have broken the record but said it will take two weeks to officially verify.
The attempt began Oct. 2 when eight challengers started watching “Iron Man.” After 72 hours, only two remained.
Never miss a local story.
They watched “Thelma and Louise” until the end on 3:10 p.m. Tuesday.
Susan Sarandon, a star of that film, dropped off the final film.
The rules: Each movie had to be viewed until the last credit rolled, and competitors couldn't divert their eyes from the screen. They were allowed 10-minute breaks between movies.
Joachim, a Canadian of Sri Lankan descent whose Web site says he holds 32 Guinness World Records, told The New York Times that he had a higher purpose than a desire to impress chicks with having watched every last Truffaut film.
On his Web site, he writes: “To spread my message in World I am attempting new world records with the aim of spreading world peace and to create an awareness of suffering children.”
