Blockbuster films are known to carry a good amount of runtime minutes, keeping most audience members glued to their seats (hopefully not sleeping). With the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming in just over a month from now, AMC Theaters revealed just how long moviegoers will stay seated in theaters: two hours and thirty-one minutes. That's 151 minutes of you holding your piss (and hopefully just that). You might not want to drink too much before and during the movie. If you think you have to take a piss before the movie starts, do it. You don't want to be that person that gets up, quietly excusing yourself to each of the people you have to pass up before getting to the aisles, then rushing to the bathroom, and finally repeating the process to get to your seat, only to have missed a pivotal scene of the film.

Do NOT use the bathroom during this scene.

151 minutes isn't much compared to other blockbuster films. Cleopatra and Nymphomaniac holds the title to the longest films. Cleopatra comes in at 248 minutes (four hours and 28 minutes), while Nymphomaniac clocks in at 325 minutes (five hours and 25 minutes). Sorry, Hollywood, but I ain't got time for that.

Assuming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just as exciting as it seems in the trailers, then 151 minutes will fly by quickly without you realizing it. But if it isn't, don't be surprised to hear people snoring in theaters. Personally, I can't do evening movies, let alone a two hour flick or you will catch me sleeping. I don't care how good the movie is. If it's late for me, I'll be snoring right through it (I'm sorry if you were part of the audience during Lord of the Rings: Return of the King's midnight screenings in San Francisco).

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released on March 25, 2016 with a runtime of 151 minutes (in case I didn't emphasize it enough above).


Does BvS: DoJ's runtime scare you?
