Must Solve: Name the 50 Movies in Daily Mail's Blockbuster Quiz!

December 28, 2010

Blockbuster Quiz

Lots of people had fun naming video game titles in the Arcade Aid game as part of the viral marketing for Tron Legacy, but let's face it, video games aren't exactly our bag of chips (though we do enjoy playing them from time-to-time). So why not try your hand at naming a whole slew of movies with nothing but a single image hinting at a total of 50 films? That's the idea behind The Daily Mail's Blockbuster Quiz (via Geeks of Doom) as they have put together one big illustrated picture containing visual hints and puns for readers to name the 50 film titles contained within. Some definitely jump right out at you, but others aren't so easy to figure out.

Here's the Blockbuster Quiz image for you to stare at for hours (click image for larger version):

We've featured games like this before with Empire's Cryptic Canvas movie painting from last year, but this one isn't limited to films from the past 20 years alone. I still haven't figured out all of the, and if you're not as patient as I am, there's an answer key for you to see which ones you haven't figured out. Hopefully this is a fun way to pass the slow news flow leading up to 2011, and maybe you can challenge your friends and family to name as many movies as possible for some fun (especially those of you trapped by the snow on the East Coast!). Can you name all the movies?

Hand holding the compass is Saving Private Ryan

@ #5....hand holding compass is "North by North West", look at the arrow...

Also, none of these are images of scenes or meant to be visuals from films, it's more like a pictogram...think pictionary...

I got 43 out of 50. I am pretty happy with that result. I am mad at myself for not getting Batman though.

@10 He's the guy in the middle in a suit holding two cricket bats. As this is from an English news-paper there are some images that won't make too much sense for other nations. Such as Shane Warne (Australian cricketer in front of taxi), Prince Edward (bottom right) and the guy with cricket bats.

I'm guessing the person with the lion's head is supposed to represent The Chronicles of Narnia franchise.

Jezza on Dec 31, 2010


Nope, that looks like 'The Lion King'. It's all about movie titles.
