Throughout all our world our differences can be drawn across many lines, but one of the best pastimes which we can bond over and celebrate our different perspectives is in the world of film.
Even the most nihilistic, self-absorbed person in the world can’t deny they have a habitual adoration for going to movies – even if it’s by themselves (I myself am a self-confessed solo cinemagoer).
Compare The Market is hyper-aware of the nation’s love for going to the cinema and they’ve created an elaborate video quiz to see how much of a movie buff you really are. So make yourself comfortable, open a bag of popcorn and feast your eye on this video-based movie teaser which will test your film knowledge.
How many film references can you spot?
There are plenty of clues to decipher, from classics such as The Great Escape and The Seven Year Itch to family favourites The Lego Movie and Babe and heartwarming comedies such as Little Miss Sunshine and Notting Hill.
Put together by Meerkat Movies to celebrate their 12-month membership, the video brain teaser hides a total of 52 clues; a film title for each week of the year.
The clip takes you through a first-person perspective, capturing the journey of any joyous film fan making their way from box office to snack bar and screen to seat.
As the movie-goer makes their way through the car park, a series of passersby give hints relating to popular motion pictures throughout the years.
With dancing men and groups of chattering women filling the cinema lobby, viewers approach the snack counter to be handed a freshly popped box of popcorn.
As you watch through the eyes of a film-fanatic, more well-known movie moments are recreated up the staircase and into the theatre screen.
Before taking a seat to enjoy the latest release, a few more iconic clues are revealed before the clip comes to a close.
Julie Daniels, Head of Customer Rewards at Compare The Market says:
We really wanted to celebrate our fantastic year-long Meerkat Movies reward through the magic of cinema.
We’ve borrowed some of the most iconic film references and mixed them with some silver screen techniques, to create a piece of cinematic content which highlights the sheer variety of genres that can be enjoyed with our offer.
We hope viewers have fun trying to spot all 52, but we won’t be surprised if a few cleverly placed clues are only caught by keen-eyed movie fanatics.
