Film Quiz Friday: Last Dance Saloon

Channing Tatum
Share this Article:

Channing Tatum is back in Magic Mike’s Last Dance, and this week’s film quiz covers his surprisingly diverse filmography to date.

Of picking projects, Channing Tatum once said: “If I have a script, I’m going to read it five times slower than any other actor, but I’ll be able to tell you everything in it.” That thoroughness served him pretty well over the last decade or so – a no-go Gambit movie notwithstanding, he’s done dance movies, action franchises, romantic comedies, cop spoofs, serious dramas, mad sci-fi follies, and, as of this week, he’s rounded out an entire Magic Mike trilogy inspired by his days as a stripper. More than enough ground to cover in this week’s movie quiz, we reckon, so that’s what we’ve done.

So that’s one round on Channing Tatum, two rounds of the usual general knowledge randomness, and 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. As always, 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. Please note that the “no touching” rule is in effect though!
