This is week 2 of the Movie Trivia Contest, so to recap, here are the rules:
I will ask 2 questions about a movie each Saturday. Correct answers will be worth 10 points each. Then there will be a bonus question worth 5 points. You have the potential for 25 points each week, with a possible 100 points total by the end of July.
One week this month, I will announce in advance the movie I'm going to watch, so those of you who find you're older than or younger than or have different tastes from the movies I watch, will have a chance just like everyone else.
As always, it's the honor system! You may watch the movie, or you may ask someone else who's seen the movie, but you can't research the answer on the internet.
So that everyone has a fair chance, please email your answers to me instead of using the comments section to answer the questions. I will post my email address at the end of the post each week.
Okay, here are the questions for the second week of the Contest:
Question 1: Name the 1985 movie about extraterrestial beings that starred, among others, Wilford Brimley, Brian Dennehy, and Steve Guttenberg.
Question 2: What planetary beings did the aliens claim to be? In other words, what planet did they come from? (yes, I know that's poor grammar, but whatever..)
Bonus Question: What book did Steve Guttenberg begin reading after he discovered his passengers were aliens?
You may email your guesses to me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime between now and when I post the answers on Tuesday.
