The theatre that shows this movie will never show another one.

Ever.

Who Is Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged? You're Kidding, Right? http://en.wikipedia...nfinitely_Prolonged
For either one of the two people on planet Earth that **HAVEN'T** read Douglas Adams "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, Wowbagger first appears in Adams' book "Life, the Universe and Everything." To be completely true to Wowbagger's character and disposition, I would be remiss if I did not now remind you that you're a jerk. A complete kneebiter. [Grogster, Feb 09 2014]

       That name does seem strangely familiar so detect a slight hint of pre-baking..   

       Also prebaked by that any director who made an interminable film, see* Lord of the Rings et al..   

       * that's 'see' as in example not as in recommendation.

       Butt Weight!!   

       There's More!!   

       Save your theatre ticket, ladies and gentlemen! You can include that ticket in your last will and testament, thereby passing it down through your family to the generations that follow you. Simply have them tell the ticket taker at the theatre that they just stepped out for a moment to suck on their towel.

       The thing is, [grog] old bean, that Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged *wasn't* infinitely prolonged, but eventually reached his last incarnation, no?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 09 2014
  

       That **IS** true, [MB]; however, as the length of this movie spans eons of time, subsequent members of your genetic line billions of years in the future (assuming the original theatre ticket lasts that long) will have long since come to terms with it as that fateful moment draws near. This subtle point was merely one of the agonizing decisions the producers of this movie had to deal with: Shall we name the movie "Wowbagger the Quite Nearly But Just Missed Being Infinitely Prolonged" (subtitled, "...The Ending Will Kill You..." --- in the end (pun, sorry, not) the producers decided to keep Wowbagger's name as it appears in the Douglas Adams books.   

       Besides that, the producers were grappling with the problem that the movie preview leading up to the premiere showing was several years long.

       I just plain don't want to go see it. Not me man.

       I think it's "a real kneebiter" you spleenkicker.

       Is it possible to make an infinitely prolonged movie that was not live? Even if preparation was made of film several years in advance, for an infinitely long movie those several years would soon catch up to real time with filming delays that slow the pace of creation below real time. Is there a way to make a movie longer than its footage by replaying shots etc? Wowbagger's endless film could show him watching all prevoius recorded camera footage including tv and movies as well as online content. Not a very interesting movie watching someone watching movies, but in an endless film that sort of thing should be expected.

       //...soon catch up to real time with filming delays that slow the pace of creation below real time...//   

       [rcarty], since Wowbagger had decided to insult the entire universe **in alphabetical order**, that DOES involve a lot of tedious flying back and forth across vast tracts of inky void; therefore, since these scenes can be annoyingly long they can be looped for decades, giving the producers all the time they need to film lots and lots of insults to be spliced in at a later date.
Grogster, Feb 10 2014
  

       It simply has to be longer than the longest potential lifespan of the viewer, and could involve some kind of plot looping device.
RayfordSteele, Feb 10 2014
  

       // some kind of plot looping device //   

       Well, you could make a movie about Agrajag, a sort of "Rosencranz and Guildenstern Are Dead" for the Hitchhiker's Guide ...

       Shouldn't this be a musical, rather than a movie, on the basis that it's easier for a musical to feel like it's infinitely long?
hippo, Feb 10 2014
  

       [8th], actually, Agrajag *WILL* be in the movie, fairly early on I would think (certainly in the first 1,600 years of production), since his name occurs early in the alphabet. As a dramatic twist, the film could show him getting killed by Arthur Dent right after Wowbagger delivers his payload.
Grogster, Feb 11 2014
  

       But he keeps getting reincarnated ... so does Wowbagger cross his path more than once ? If not, he (Wowbagger) must have a priori knowledge of Agrajag's peculiar problem ...
8th of 7, Feb 11 2014
  

       No problem --- Wowbagger ran into Arthur more than once, too.
