Film Quiz Friday: The 180-Minute Edition

Share this Article:

Find a comfy seat and reconsider that extra-large soft drink, because this week’s film quiz covers some movies that are more than three hours long.

We’ve got a long bank holiday weekend ahead of us, so what could be finer than a round dedicated to long films? That’s why we’ve dedicated 10 of this week’s 30 questions to films that either hit or exceed the three-hour mark, as well as the usual movie-related trivia. To borrow Futurama’s logic, if it took about 180 minutes to write, it’ll probably take 180 minutes to play, right?

However long it takes, this is all just for fun, 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. Please do get in touch in the comments and let us know how you did (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Now, if you’re sitting comfortably, let’s begin…
