This week’s big new cinema release is Bullet Train, and having already covered films on rails recently, we’ve been rummaging in William Bradley Pitt’s back-catalogue for some of the next 30 questions. On top of that, we’ve got questions on subjects including box-office smash hits, Oscar winners, and, er… The Emoji Movie.

Once you’ve finished all three 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 make sure you grab a snack, so you’ve got something to eat while playing – seems to work for Brad!
