375 Movie Trivia Questions and Answers in Every Genre

Movies are a major part of many people’s lives because of the feelings and thoughts they can generate, the escape they can provide, and the overall joy they bring into our lives. If you are like me, you truly love a good movie. If you are a movie fan, these 375 movie trivia questions and answers are for you. When I wrote these questions, I tried to include every single genre of movie in existence and focus on the films that are most broadly loved within each movie type category.

Since many films can cover a few different genres, there may be some overlap between question categories and the movies that are included in the questions. Irrespective of this, these 375 movie trivia questions, will provide you with hours of entertainment and a real challenge about the most significant and beloved movies from the last 100 years. Since there are an incredible amount of movies that have been created since the development of the motion picture, I chose to focus on movies that were the highest grossing in sales, the most appreciated by viewers, and the highest rated by critics (with a few exceptions since some very popular movies were panned by professional movie reviewers).

Please enjoy these 375 movie trivia questions below. They would work great for your next trivia night with friends, and just as effective for a challenging game to test yourself on your movie trivia knowledge. I hope you enjoy reading these trivia questions as much as I enjoyed researching and writing them.
