Mystery Category: Title Characters
Name the person or persons who played the title character(s) in a high-grossing film from 2019.
M1. Captain Marvel
M2. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (name both)
M4. Alita: Battle Angel
Final Category – Movie Titles
Of the movie titles beginning with the letter “S” on the list of highest-grossing movies of all time, five of those are part of the Star Wars or Spider-Man series. What is the sixth film?
We picked an “S” film that didn’t make as much money as the correct one (though we came close)! That’s OK, movie trivia is always fun, even if you don’t end up with an Oscar for your efforts! Or even a Golden Globe…Saturn awards are actually the coolest!!!
As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Scarlett O’Hara – though who would want to read about you if you were classy?
