Nobody demanded it, but now we’ve done it – this week’s film-themed Friday quiz is a Friday-themed film quiz, with plenty more movie trivia to spare.
Quizmasters are a cowardly and superstitious bunch, so we were hardly going to do a round themed around the “13” bit of today’s date, were we? In any case, as well as coming up with 10 whole questions about one day of the week at the movies, we’ve got teasers on acting Oscar nominees, romantic comedy taglines, and closing credits music. What could be finer???
Once you’ve finished all 30 questions, 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. Enjoy your weekend!
