Historically iconic actors and actresses
Over the last century there have been countless iconic actors and actresses emerging in the film world, and many of these have gone on to become genuine cultural icons.
For this reason there are bound to be at least a few quiz questions centring on legendary actors and actresses during a move quiz, so it is essential that you have at least a basic understanding of this.
So, make sure you are aware of some of the all time greats such as Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. These are just a few examples, but to increase your chances of winning a film quiz we would definitely recommend doing a bit more research.
Some of the most famous directors
And it’s not just the actors and actresses that become massively famous off the back of popular films either, because the directors responsible can also achieve seminal status. In fact, you are more than likely to encounter a movie quiz question based on film directors, mainly because it will be a way for quiz masters to try and catch people out with slightly more obscure questions.
For example, remember the director behind historic films such as E.T, Saving Private Ryan and Jurassic Park is Steven Spielberg. Or, alternatively, the man responsible for directing Goodfellas and The Wolf of Wall Street – Martin Scorsese.
Successful box office smash hits
Another way in which movie trivia quiz questions can be made to be slightly more difficult than your average is to focus on successful box office smash hits. In fact, as far as trivia goes this is a great way to catch people out, because it isn’t really something that most of us will know or care too deeply about.
A good one is to always know what the highest grossing film of all time is, and that award currently goes to Avengers: Endgame from 2019. Beware of the potential for a trick question here, however, because 1939 film Gone With The Wind can also be called the highest grossing film of all time if you factor in inflation.
