Seven days have passed since our last quiz, which means it’s time for us to put on our special overalls and descend back into the mine of geeky trivia. Metaphorical pickaxes in hand, we’re chipping away at the week’s news in search of morsels of intrigue that will test your knowledge, push your memory to the limits, and also hone your ability to pick a fake answer from a lineup.
This week, the mine has been kind to us, offering plentiful nerdtastic news for us to squeeze into quiz questions: in the big screen world, Andy Serkis has been confirmed as Venom 2 director, while Disney has unveiled is plans to reboot Home Alone and loads of other family favourites; in telly land, a Mindhunter season 2 trailer has arrived and an Event Horizon TV series has been announced; and in the game zone, some interesting Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare news dropped, and some of the biggest companies came together to combat unfair loot boxes.
Also, while we’ve got your attention, do you fancy some recommendations? NOS4A2 and GLOW season 3 lead our list of what’s worth watching on TV this week, while Blinded By The Light saunters into cinemas with a banging soundtrack of Bruce Springstein tracks. And if you want some free gaming fun, the PES 2020 demo is worth a look if footy sims are your cup of tea.
And now comes the time where our week of toiling in the quiz mine will finally pay off. Below you’ll find twelve questions, ranging from the silly to the serious (but most of them are silly), based on the week’s geeky news. Can you get a perfect score?
