Completing a movie marathon on a series of films is a norm among film enthusiasts but this YouTuber has watched the latest Marvel film ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ so many times that he’s caught the attention of not only IMAX but the film’s directors, Russo Brothers too!
YouTuber ‘Nem’ watched ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ 47 times
Tony Mitchell, aka Nem, has got more than 400,000 subscribers on his YouTube channels dealing with gaming and music (https://bit.ly/2JwlQXk). He’s caught the attention of the film world by starting a non-stop spree of watching the latest Marvel Studios film 47 times. Suppose an average film ticket costs USD 10, this means he’s spent $470(Dhs 1,726)!
Directors Russo Brothers offered him an invite for Avengers 4
Social media users seemed shocked seeing Nem post tweets of himself at the cinemas going for the movie. Among them have been the film’s directors, the Russo Brothers, who also followed him and sent him an invite to the set for re-shoots. Fun fact, Russo Brothers only follow 18 people on Twitter.

IMAX decided to reward Nem too!
Nem’s craze for the Avengers film turned out a surprisingly successful publicity stint and much to his surprise, high-resolution projection giant IMAX has offered him 50 free tickets, praising his effort to “push the limits for moviegoing.” He’s now giving the tickets to his 22,500 Twitter followers to watch Marvel’s next film ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ next month.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is close to the $2 billion mark.
Since its release on April 26th, the film has enjoyed tremendous success worldwide and is well on its way to becoming the first superhero film to cross the $2 billion mark. In the US alone, according to Forbes, it has crossed the $650 million mark. Currently, the film is battling it out in the box office against blockbusters like ‘Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom’, ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and Marvel’s very own ‘Deadpool 2’.
