It’s a long Easter weekend ahead, so we’ve packed some suitably bumper-sized questions into your regular Friday quiz. It’s 30 questions as usual, but you’ll find a bunch of them cover kaiju, mutated animals, and various behemoths in cinema, somehow packed in between the usual selection of regular-size movie trivia. You’ll find a couple of cheeky seasonally relevant questions too.

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. Please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 as usual this week) and give us any other lovely feedback. Have a good weekend, and let’s get ready to rumble…!
