It’s Friday again and we’ll be here every Friday, keeping you in quizzes for the rest of the year, with specialist rounds on movie stars, movie quotes, and movie mashups all lined up for the next few weeks and months. For now though, we’ve got another selection of 30 movie trivia questions to see you through the weekend. There’s an alphabetical theme to our specialist round this week, but it’s random quizness as usual in the movie history and pot luck rounds.

Once you’ve finished all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. Remember, 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. Time for some Alphabet Aerobics
