  • Avatar Reclaims Its Crown

    In 2010 Avatar blitzed the previous record to become the highest grossing film of all time. In 2019, Avengers: Endgame inched past and has held the title for the past two years.

    On Saturday, Avatar's box office total reached $2.802M. Enough for it to reclaim its crown as the highest grossing film of all time.

    Since records began, only eleven films have held the title. How many can you name?

  • A Celebration of Dancing In The Movies!

    We claim absolutely no credit for this wonderful short film. We just came across it and had to share it.

    The brain-child of Brazilian film-editor Diego Carrera, it is an astonishing celebration of dancing throughout movie history, cleverly and beautifully put together.

    Turn the sound up on your PC, tablet or phone and lose yourself for five and a half minutes...

  • The Christmas Movie Poster Quiz!

    Many people have told us how much they enjoy our movie poster quizzes. We are delighted that many have used them during Zoom calls to bring friends and families together during a difficult year.

    So, what better time for another quiz than at Christmas!

    No matter your age, we think there is a poster there for you. How many can you recognise??

  • Polish Movie Poster Quiz - The Answers

    Last week's blog post provided a fun quiz based on the unique Polish take on twentieth century movie posters. (If you haven't found it, do take a look before you open this poster!)

    This week, we give you the answers!

    How many did you get right?

  • Polish Movie Poster Quiz - How Many Can You Recognise?

    In last week's blog post we provided a brief introduction to Polish movie posters and we also promised you a Polish movie poster quiz, so, here you go!

    You will know ALL of the films but some of the posters are easier to identify than others.

    How many can you identify? (No cheating!)

  • The Stars of Movie Posters Quiz!

    Given the fantastic response to our earlier movie poster quizzes, we have devised another!

    Everyone has their favourite actors and the best of them can amaze us with their versatility. With modern make-up and CGI, they are often almost unrecognisable.

    Below you will find ten fantastic actors. All have played a range of roles in major films. We have taken some of their movie poster images and combined them.

    How many can you identify?

  • The Pixelated Movie Poster Quiz - The Answers

    In last week's blog post we published The Pixelated Movie Poster Quiz. For reasons we haven't been able to fathom, some Apple devices refuse to show the answers when the pixelated posters are clicked.

    So, for all those frustrated by not being able to get the last one or two answers, here they all are!

  • Quiz - The Pixelated Movie Poster Quiz!

    Following the fantastic response to our 'An A to Z of Movie Posters' Quiz, here is our latest family friendly round for your next lock-down quiz!

    We have taken fifty well-known movie posters and pixelated them. In some cases we have taken off the name of the movie too as that would have been just too easy!

    Whilst everyone will know most, there are a couple of harder ones in there too.


  • Quiz - An A to Z of Movie Posters!

    Even if you aren't a movie poster nerd, you will know far more movie posters than you realise.

    They capture an entire film in one image. Often, when you think of a film, it is the movie poster that you picture, rather than a specific scene from the movie.

    So, here is our first movie poster quiz. An 'A to Z' of movie posters. You will know all of the films - but how many can you recognise??
