Share this Article:

It’s time to separate your First Avenger from your Last Knight with our weekly film quiz, which covers sequels, remakes, and all kinds of films in between.

Ready for another trilogy of trivia questions? In the week that Sister Act 3 was announced and On The Rocks didn’t turn out to be Sofia Coppola’s sequel to the Russell Brand version of Arthur, we’ve been thinking about the sequel subtitles that go where fancy numerals and plain-old numbers just won’t do. On either side of that round, we’ve got lots more movie-related teasers to end the week.

Once you’ve answered all 30 questions, 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. Here we go…
