Fun Friday: Volume 1, Issue 3

What he has to say:


It is time for some fun factoids!  In this issue of Fun Friday, I am going to test your movie knowledge.  

I’ll start off with a fairly easy one. The latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie comes out today. Johnny Depp is a huge star now, but everyone has to get their start somewhere. Do you know the name of the first movie he starred in? The answer is here.

Speaking of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, how many of those movies has Geoffrey Rush appeared in? You can find the answer here.

Midnight in Paris also comes out this weekend and stars Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams. What other movie have these two starred in together? You can find the answer here. That movie also stars someone else who is in the upcoming sequel to The Hangover. The identity of that actor can be found here.

Thor is in theaters now and is the latest movie from Marvel Comics in is of a series of films that will lead up to The Avengers.  Some of the other movies included in this series are Ironman, Ironman 2, the soon-to-be-released Captain America, and the 2008 version of The Incredible Hulk.

The Hulk character has been played by several different actors on both the big and small screens: Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno, Eric Bana, and Edward Norton. Who will be playing the character in The Avengers? The answer can be found here.

Later this summer Chris Evans will be unveiling the next chapter in Marvel’s master plan when he plays Captain America. Can you name the other superhero Evans has played? The answer can be found here.

Not too long ago, we sat down and re-watched How to Train Your Dragon (review here).  Gerard Butler – who was one of the main characters in the film – got his big break playing manly man King Leonidas in 300. Just a few years earlier, he played a part that was very different from his breakout role. What romantic drama am I speaking of? Find out here.  

The Governator has gotten himself into a bit of hot water lately. But for many years he starred as the leading man in some of the most popular action movies of all time. Do you know what Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first role was? Find out in this hilarious clip.

Enjoy and let me know how you did!
