Film Quiz Friday: Dramatic Effect!!!

Share this Article:

As Shazam! Fury Of The Gods strikes cinemas worldwide, this week’s film quiz trades question marks for exclamation marks…

Exclamation marks are usually an emphasis of last resort, but we’re not running out of quiz themes just yet, honest – why, in the weeks to come, we’ve got rounds on Quentin Tarantino, the Alien franchise, and the wonderful world of Disney animation. We’re not struggling, it’s just that, for now, exclamation marks happen to appear at the end of several answers in this week’s quiz.

Once you’ve completed all 30 movie trivia 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). Would we like any other lovely feedback?! Yes! Yes!! A thousand times, yes!!!
