ggg

a. Trainspotting released 1996 one Oscar nomination

e. Jaws released 1976 4 nominations 2 wins

r Lawrence of Arabia 1962 7 Oscars, 4 other nominations

"Star Wars The Force Awakens"

according to Badman

or should I say "Bannedman"

h. Footloose 1984

d. For your eyes only 1981

u. Silence of the Lambs 1991

has GCHQ given up tracking jihadis and turned to predicting the Oscars? 

Don't think so Sumo, I was trying to work out the significance of the number bottom right.

v. Alien

don't get the numbers

t is Moonstruck but don't get the 10

this is why I was shit at the GCHQ selection tests I did 25 years ago

Is the number meant to be the letter in the film's name? But then not sure why this would dictate what the next film in the series is.

n is American Beauty

p = Pretty Woman

s = Rain Man?

Badman pp Tricky has the answer, the number is the offset in the film title so the sixth letter of trainspotting etc. 

p. Pretty Woman

s. Rainman

GCHQ tried to recruit my brother. My mum hid the offer letter because she ‘didn’t want him sitting in a windowless room translating Chinese’. Always felt sorry for him. Then that guy died in a suitcase. Now I think he had a lucky escape. 

Had you seen Volenti's post before saying we must be able to get film 24?

Well W must begin with an S

looks like people dancing

Badman says you lot are khunts for ignoring his answer (only volenti noticed)

and that W is obviously Saturday night fever

khunts

 

Sorry, the last 'khunts' was supposed to be 'thick khunts' for not getting W.

Personally I still see a bloody snake on the plane

You’d think GCHQ would have picked a more diverse selection. 

But why is the question "what is the 24th film" as opposed to "what film do the following 23 films represent"?

Star Wars The Force Awakens isn't the next film in the series, to be labeled "x".

I have googled and it is Sex Tape

FFS I have never even heard of it

Badders has been banned because he's the internet equivalent of keeping dirt in the pocket of your cricket whites.

I had the answer within 14 clues with some pretty substantial gaps (everything between j and u).  

I didn't even attempt the codebreaking tbf as I am spectacularly useless in that area - love a good movie trivia quiz though

I maintain they could have come up with a more iconic final poster though. Twats.

Saturday Night Fever is incorrect

 

Sex Tape is the correct answer for W

well quite

I suppose if you have already cracked the clue you don't need the final S and could stick any old shite in

in which case I would have gone for some obscure arthouse Japanese film from the 40s or summat rather than some shit Cameron Diaz film
