Third time’s the charm – naming sequels is hard to do, but can you identify the famous subtitles in this week’s film quiz?.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £1: right here!

In The Sequelizer, we asked you to name franchises from their sequel subtitles. In Sequelizer II, we called upon you to do it again. Now… well, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? Sequels come but once a year, every year, until we run out of titles, so we hope you enjoy this week’s bundle of movie questions.

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. 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. Stick around in case there’s a post-credits tease for Sequelizer 4.0: Live Free Or Quiz Hard while you’re down there…
