Movie Screenshot Game

I’m not in a writing mood, so let’s play a little game. I’m starting it off, but if you win, you can continue the game. Here’s how the game is played:

  • I’m going to post a screenshot from a movie. If you’re the first person to guess the movie, you win!
  • If you win, you have to continue the game by posting a screenshot on your blog with the same rules outlined here (please link here as well). The winner of your round will host the next round, and so on.
  • If you don’t have a blog (and if you don’t want to start one), I’ll host the next round as well (the screenshot should still come from the winner, if possible). If you do have a blog, but the winner of your round doesn’t, you should host the next round too.
  • Once the winner posts their screenshot, I’ll link to it from this post. Each winner needs to link to the next winner, and so on.
  • Only movies are eligible. No television shows.
  • If no one can figure out the answer within 3 days, then you’ve stumped the internet. If you want, you can give hints. If we still have no winner, then congratulations, you’ve won. Maybe I’ll start a hall of fame or something. Give everyone the answer, and post another screenshot (or pass the baton to someone else, and link them). If you decide to host the next round, be nice, and post an easier screenshot. This game would be no fun if you keep posting random landscapes from obscure Italian films.
  • Update! Optional Rule: If you want, winners can “tag” 5 other bloggers they’d like to see post screenshots on their blogs. This rule was added in November of 2007 to see how it affected adoption of the game.

I guess that’s a good start. I’m sure the rules could use some tweaking here or there, but we’ll cross that bridge when and if we get there.

Let’s kick things off with a ridiculously easy screenshot (click for larger image):

Screenshot game, Round 1

Please answer in the comments. First right answer wins! And yes, I know, this is probably too

easy, but I’m interested to see how this game spreads (or if it speads).

Update: We have a winner. Swipe for answer: The Matrix. Alex is hosting Round 2 of the game!

Updates: I’ll keep a list of all future rounds here:

Update: Added a new optional rule, and brought the game back from death with round 24.
