Film Quiz Friday: Let Them Fight!

Godzilla Vs Kong
Share this Article:

Square up to this week’s film quiz, featuring 30 film-related questions and some pitches for Godzilla X Kong-size movie title fights.

Movies used to have proper titles, like 2021’s Godzilla Vs Kong. Now its sequel, Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire, has forgotten the immortal words of Ken Watanabe’s Dr Serizawa in the 2014 Monsterverse-starter Godzilla, and it’s shoved some sort of smoochy noise or Family Fortunes wrong answer klaxon in there instead. This is unacceptable!

But rather than let it ruin our long weekend, we’ve done our bit for the balance of cinema in this week’s film quiz by replacing the word “And” with “Versus” in TEN other movie titles and called that round two. On either side of this silliness, there’s the usual movie trivia, with subjects including comedy sequels, horror franchises and fictional royalty.

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 all just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 32 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback.

Ready? FIGHT!
