5. What is the name of the 2013 sci-fi film starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts who are stranded in space?

Answer: Gravity

"Gravity"'s storyline was compelling: Bullock and Clooney are sent to fix a telescope in space when their craft is damaged by space debris. The highly acclaimed movie touches upon themes of survival, spirituality, and meaningful vs. meaningless deaths. It was filmed largely in studios in the U.K., though a landing scene used the striking landscape around Lake Powell, which is on the border of Utah and Arizona. The film won eight of the 11 Academy Awards for which it was nominated.

7. The film "Argo" was named after the film-within-a-film that was used as a ruse to rescue hostages from a hostile country. In what country, whose national currency is the rial, was the film based?

Answer: Iran

"Argo" was based on the true story of U.S. diplomats who were detained in Tehran, Iran during a hostage crisis. In order to remove them, a group of C.I.A. and Canadian intelligence agents posed as documentarians and managed to move the Americans to safety. Although in reality many countries were involved in the rescue, the movie focused on an American agent, played by Ben Affleck. "Argo" was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won three: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Editing.

9. What director, originally known for "Dazed and Confused", was responsible for the 2014 coming-of-age film "Boyhood"?

Answer: Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater used unusual techniques to create "Boyhood", which was about a boy named Mason and his family. Linklater would bring the cast together, shoot scenes for a few weeks, then stop filming and go about their own lives. Then the cast would reconvene a year later and shoot more scenes, and so on, for 14 years. This allowed the film to follow the character of Mason growing up in real time. The film and the cast won many awards, especially Patricia Arquette who played the mother, Ethan Hawke who played the father, and Linklater for directing and producing.

10. What was the name of 2012 film named after a famous director known for making suspenseful movies from the 1920s to the 1970s?

Answer: Hitchcock

"Hitchcock" had a formidable cast, including Anthony Hopkins as the famed director, Helen Mirren as his wife Alma, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, and Toni Collette as the director's assistant Peggy Robertson. Despite the stellar cast, the movie was only nominated for one Academy Award, for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
