Creed, Ant-Man, and Magic Mike make a trio of Part Threes in cinemas now, so this week’s film quiz highlights other third instalments…

Movie trilogies rarely stay trilogies for long these days. There’s a lot to be said for a beginning, a middle, and an end, but when you can make entire cinematic universes out of middle, final third instalments seem to have fallen out of fashion. That will probably be true of this week’s Creed III as well, but as always, we’ve got a trilogy of trivia for you anyway.

Once you’ve completed all 30 questions, 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. Three rounds altogether and that’s the way we like it…
