It’s been a fun year for films, with long awaited remakes, reboots and sequels, exciting new adaptations and original talents coming to the fore. Not that there weren’t disappointing efforts along the way of course. How well do you remember the film year just going? Are there any that stood out either for positive or negative reasons? Below is a super-size quiz on a random mix of films released in the UK within the past 12 months.
With the latest James Bond film Spectre being released later this year, the timing of The National Film Museum’s Bond in Motion was wonderfully timed. Quite unsurprisingly, it has been extended.

Not to mention his love of a Martini, his armed combat skills and his incorporation of gadgets. And who can forget his love of the finest sports cars and alternative getaway vehicles?
