Kirsten Dunst Civil War
Share this Article:

In this week’s film quiz, 30 movie-related questions on subjects such as Peter Pan, Robin Hood, and the movies of Kirsten Dunst.

Starring in this week’s new thriller Civil War, Kirsten Dunst has become a heck of a movie star since her early acting days. Her career spans from acclaimed roles as a child star, through her graduation to teen-movie lead roles, all the way up to her more recent work, which has earned her oodles of indie cred and awards nods. Actors like Dunst are never knowingly underappreciated when it comes to Film Quiz Friday, so she’s the subject of this week’s Round 2. And if you fancy some further reading, here’s Ryan’s 4-star review of Civil War.

On either side, there’s a couple more rounds of movie trivia, with the odd bonus point or two up for grabs. Once you’ve completed this week’s film quiz, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is all just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 33 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. And as El Trousias, maiden of the clouds, blows the quiz horn – let the quiz begin!
