This week’s film quiz is brought to you by the number 4, with 30 questions about fourth instalments and other famous Fours on film.

Every fourth instalment has to be somebody’s favourite, right? As Expend4bles hits cinemas and takes the bold, Fant4stic approach of caving in its own title with the number 4, this week’s film quiz takes on movie quartets (or “quadrilogies”, if you like) and fourth instalments in between lots of other movie teasers.

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. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 32 this week!!!) and leave us any other lovely feedback. Remember, there are three rounds – there will not be a fourth…
