Avengers Endgame opened last week, sending what looks to be a record number of people to their local theatre to see what happens to their favourite superheroes.
At three hours and two minutes, Endgame takes its time in ending the story, which is great for the movie, but maybe not so great for your bladder if you opted to bring a beverage into the film with you.
If you’re planning to go see the film, one of your best bets before you go is to download the app Runpee. It’s been around forever, but now is a good time to remind everyone that it’s an option.
Runpee works for a number of popular films, but Endgame is one where it can really come in handy.
With the app, you can let it know when the movie starts, and then it will let you know through a gentle vibration when you have time to pop out for a quick bathroom break or to refill that beverage (no judgment!).
While you’re out, the app will tell you exactly how much time you have before the action picks up again, and it will give you a short written synopsis of what you’re missing so you can enter the theatre ready for what’s next.
If you don’t want to run the app, then a number of sites have broken out when the right time to step out it (although you’ll miss out on Runpee’s synopsis of what you missed).
It recommends not leaving your seat at all if you’re more than 2 hours into the movie, but it has three distinct suggestions for when might be a good time to make a run for it before that two-hour mark.
Ideally, you don’t want to miss any of the film, but if you’ve gotta go, it’s good to know when you can and not miss out on any pivotal scenes.
