Film Quiz Friday: Sequelizer 4.0 – Live Free Or Quiz Hard

This week's film quiz is all about sequels, like Die Hard 4

Sequels are harder to name than we make it look, but this week’s film quiz includes another bunch of second-movie subtitles.

In a heated script dispute during the production of Die Hard 4.0, Bruce Willis famously got on the phone with executives at 20th Century Fox and asked, “Who’s your second choice to play John McClane?” Our now-annual Sequelizer quiz rounds are all about second choices… specifically the good, bad, and weird choices of second-movie subtitles.

Once you’ve completed all three film quiz 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. And let us know if we should continue the gag next year – do I have to make the fifth Sequelizer a load of crap?
