TRIVIA – POST-APOCALYPTIC FILMS
Post-Apocalyptic films are defined as “denoting or relating to the time following a nuclear war or other catastrophic event.” So with “War for the Planet of the Apes” in theaters and in honor of our special guest who wrote the post-apocalyptic film “Book of Eli,” I thought we’d test some Cinema Squad Trivia on Post-Apocalyptic films.

  • Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman are writing & directing a Mega Man film for Twentieth Century Fox.
  • Sony Pictures optioned the rights to Action Lab Comics series Princeless.
