About This Quiz

The world of entertainment is bigger than any one of us can comprehend. We all know that a blockbuster movie can rake in a ton of cash, even over $1 billion at the box office. But if that's just one movie, what does all of Hollywood manage to do in a single year? Well, in 2017 alone, movies pulled in over $43 billion at the box office. That number is so big it may as well be a gajillion dollars. It's more than any single person could ever spend in a lifetime. But one thing you can understand with a number that big is that we love movies. As a people, we can't get enough of the escapism. Whether it's the story, the acting, the action, or the effects, there's something in a movie to appeal to pretty much everyone.
