2022 hasn’t been anything like business as usual for the film industry after the challenges of the last couple of years, but on the bright side, it’s the first 12-month stretch in a while where cinemas haven’t been forced to close. Accordingly, there have been a lot of new releases, both on the big screen and on streaming services, and a fair few big movie news stories too. And so, until Film Quiz Friday returns in 2023, enjoy this big film quiz all about the year that was.

There are 22 questions about this year in film, plus an extra-special bonus round. No prizes for full marks or a high score, but we hope you take pride in bragging rights. Once you’ve had a go, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this page. Please do get in touch in the comments and let us know how you did (scores out of 32, this time!) and give us any other lovely feedback. See you next year!

Can you name any five of the top ten highest-grossing 2022 releases at the UK cinema box office this year? Please note, these are all films released in the UK from 1st January 2022 onwards, NOT including holdovers from 2021 like Spider-Man: No Way Home, which first appeared in last year’s top ten. All answers are correct as of 23rd December 2022.

Rules and scoring, then – you can pick up to five films and have 1 point for each correct answer that appears anywhere in the top ten, and that’ll get you up to 5 points.

However, if your five answers match the top five films, in any order, treat yourself to an additional 5 bonus points as well. You’ll find out how many points you’ve got by clicking through to the answers below…
