A Florida man has set the Guinness World Record for the ‘most cinema productions attended for the same film’, after watching “Spider-Man: No Way Home” 292 times IN THEATERS. Ramiro Alanis bought multiple tickets to the movie starting on opening night Dec. 16. To qualify for the record, he couldn’t participate in any other activity during the screening, or even leave for a bathroom break until the credits finished. He also had to provide a ticket stub and written statement from a theater employee proving he had obeyed the rules. While he doesn’t have an official count, Alanis estimates that he spent around $3,400 in movie tickets to set the record.


The teaser trailer for Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Love and Thunder” has officially arrived, and it looks awesome. In the 4th Thor film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ll see the return of Chris Hemsworth’s hero as he appears to be on a journey of self-discovery. As Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine blasts in the background, he says: “I want to choose my own path.” Love and Thunder will see the return of fan favorite Natalie Portman as ‘Jane’, for the first time since “Thor: The Dark World”. Director Taika Waititi has said the movie, which is a direct sequel to “Thor: Ragnarok”, will use elements from the Mighty Thor comic book, in which Jane takes on the powers of the God of Thunder.

Star Wars” actor Ewan McGregor will marry his “Fargo” co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead tomorrow, according to reports. 51-year-old McGregor is set to tie the knot with Winstead, who is 37, in Los Angeles, after meeting in late 2016 when they played a couple in the FX TV series. A source says: “They are more in love than ever” after welcoming their first child together in June 2020, a son named Laurie. The couple bought a home in the Topanga Canyon area of Los Angeles in 2019.

Liza Minnelli’s longtime friend Michael Feinstein claims the Broadway icon was “sabotaged” at the Oscars by being “forced” to use a wheelchair that sparked concern about her health. During the broadcast, Minnelli took the stage with Lady Gaga to present the Best Picture award. Aside from sitting in a wheelchair, she also notably flubbed some of her teleprompter lines. Friend and collaborator Feinstein said in an interview that she “only agreed to appear if she could sit in a director’s chair, ’cause she’s been having back trouble,” and didn’t want people to worry about her. However, 5 minutes before she was set to appear, a stage manager told her she had to use a wheelchair. Feinstein believes the last-minute change was made because producers “were all shaken up because of everything that had happened earlier” a reference to the Will Smith/Chris Rock slapping incident.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Netflix is planning to add commercials, and not everyone is here for it. After years of resisting ads, Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings said this week that the company is “open” to adding lower-priced, ad-support plans “over the next year or two.” Hastings explained that “allowing consumers who would like to have a lower price and are advertising-tolerant get what they want makes a lot of sense.” But the news didn’t settle well with everyone, with some people threatening to cancel their subscriptions. Many wondered why Netflix, couldn’t simply offer an ad-free tier at a lower price than its current 3 tiers, and another called the fact that the streamer doesn’t feature ads “the whole reason people pay”.

If your preferred method of devouring Oreo cookies is twisting it into 2 parts, you might have noticed that the filling usually sticks completely to one chocolate wafer or the other. Well, diligent researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology decided to work on the problem. Crystal Owens, a Ph.D. candidate in mechanical engineering used some of the high-tech lab tools there to solve this ongoing Oreo enigma. She and her colleagues invented an “Oreometer” — a 3D-printed device designed for Oreos. The team twisted the sandwich apart with the new Oreo tech and inspected the creme-to-cookie ratio on each side. They also experimented with variables such as dunking the cookie in milk and using different Oreo flavors and the Double Stuf and Mega Stuf varieties. The result? Unfortunately, no trick for opening Oreos to evenly distribute the good stuff was found. The “Oreology” team determined that the crème may stick to one side strictly due to the way they are manufactured, packaged and stored, which is totally out of our control, as Oreo lovers.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An animal park in Germany that had named one its wild boars “Putin” held a ceremony this week to rechristen the hairy hog following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The park operator says he named the nearly 200 kg (441 lb) boar after Russian President Vladimir Putin 3 years ago because of its Russian genetic heritage. But lately, whenever he did a roll call of the boar for visitors, a shiver went down his spine when mentioning Putin, given the war unfolding just west. He soon came to the conclusion that no pig deserved such a name, so the park announced a search for a new one. About 2,700 suggestions poured in, and “Eberhofer” – the name of a policeman from a popular Bavarian book series – won the vote.
