It’s a New Year and a new film quiz for you to get stuck into – subjects this week include Westerns, box-office landmarks, and quizzes in films.


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

We hope you’ve all had a nice week off quizzing, but it’s time to get stuck into another 30 movie-related teasers. It’s quizness as usual in 2022, and just to double down, we’re starting off with a film quiz about quizzes in films. In weeks to come, we’ll serve up lots more trivia, quotes, taglines, and (most imminently) some questions about an actor you would think we’d covered already, this being Film Stories.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. We’ve started so we’ll finish…
