Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £4.99: right here!

De La Soul once sang that 3 is a magic number, which is only partly why we bring you three rounds, with 10 movie questions each, every Friday. As always, this is just for fun, so you don’t need to show your working, but bear in mind that you should only need 30 letters in total to answer Round 2 – more on that when we get there, LOL, BRB, and what have you!

Once you’ve completed all 30 questions, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. Please do get in touch in the comments and let us know how you did (scores out of 30 as usual this week) and give us any other lovely feedback. Three, two, one, here we go…
