One Star Wars fan can now claim "ultimate champion" status over all other fans. After a marathon contest held by Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, Jim Braden now holds that crown after watching Star Wars movies for 46 hours straight in the theater.
Braden won "tens of thousands of dollars" of prizes along with his ultimate champion trophy for outlasting other competitors in a marathon showing of Star Wars. It started with the first six episodes in the series, followed by nine straight showings of the newest entry, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Some of his prizes included seven years of free movies at the theater and enough collectibles to fill any fan of the Force's desires.
"We put ourselves through hell mentally and physically,” Braden told Variety. “Watching it became almost a hallucinatory experience… one other guy complained of having chest pains and dropped out.”
Psssh... watch all of canon in chronological order in one sitting: 1, 2, Clone Wars (six seasons), 3, Rebels (season and a half), 4, 5, 6, 7, then let's talk, Braden (please don't do this you would die).
