Welcome back to Film Quiz Friday – our summer break is over, and we’ll be delivering three rounds of movie-related quizness every week from now until Christmas. Still to come this year, on top of the regular quiz themes, we’ll have a few more franchise-themed quizzes, including Back To The Future, The Lord Of The Rings, and allegedly, there’s a new James Bond film out next month too, so we must do something for that.

But for a change, this week’s film quiz is more of a pot-luck affair. (Or is it?) Anyway, 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. Let’s go!
