The Many Faces Of Hugo Weaving

This week, Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven has its premier, and with a cast that strong, I had no doubt that one in that group would end up being the focus of this week's quiz.
But guess what? I was wrong! A little Australian drama from 2015 called The Dressmaker also appears in North American cinemas, and when I mentioned Hugo Weaving was in it, everyone quickly voted for him.

I can try and elaborate on why this happened, but I'd better just say that Hugo Weaving is fucking awesome. Because let's face it: he is. And when we started collecting screenshots, it quickly became apparent that this was going to be one of our favourite quizzes ever.

So once again I'm going to use fourteen close-ups of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun. Try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all fourteen of them right).

Kurt Halfyard and Stuart Muller contributed to this story.

And here he is as Sergeant Farrat in The Dressmaker.

This picture isn't part of the quiz yet, but the others are. Browse through them all, and see how many you recognize!

#3 Gosh, it's that werewolf movie with Del Toro and Hopkins. Wolf? No, that's Nicholson's. ***Ooo, I got it now. It's The Wolfman. I never saw it since they usurped Rick Baker's practical effects for garbage CG effects.**
#4 The Matrix
#7 The Matrix Reloaded
#8 The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of the Ring?
#10 Captain America: The First Avenger (I hope he returns for Infinity War)
#11 The Matrix Revolutions
#12 Yuck!
#14 V For Vendetta

#6 Looks wicked!

I still need to see Oranges and Sunshine. Dunno it that one's in your quiz, but it's on my to see list.

All the easy ones seem to be taken so I'm just gonna check back periodically to see what #9 is. That shit looks crazy.

ManateeAdvocateSeptember 23, 2016 2:27 PM

Sorry. I think, maybe, that #9 is Priscilla Queen of the Desert or something like that. Never saw it.

Frank DupontSeptember 23, 2016 2:31 PM

#6 is Cloud Atlas

ManateeAdvocateSeptember 23, 2016 2:33 PM

Really? Hmm. I've really been on the fence about checking that one out. Did you feel it was worth your time?

KurtSeptember 23, 2016 2:59 PM

9 is indeed Priscilla, and it's a goddam classic. Eveyone should check it out, for the pingpoing balls scene, alone.

what? How come photos from 3 Matrix films and no "Reckless Kelly"?
1. Proof
12. Transformers 3: Dark Side of the Moon?

God of JoySeptember 24, 2016 2:14 AM

IMO Cloud Atlas is kind of an over the top ambitious puzzle box. Amazing script, conceptually very cool, some gorgeous scenes ... marred by some sub-par make-up and a little bit of political strangeness of seeing white actors in Asian make-up (within the context of the specifics of the narrative, yes, there is a reason for this - but it still makes things a bit uncomfortable at times). My 2 cents. It is one of my wife's faves.

Ard VijnSeptember 24, 2016 6:14 AM

All correct except 12.
That leaves 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 12 and 13...

Ard VijnSeptember 24, 2016 6:14 AM


Ard VijnSeptember 24, 2016 6:15 AM

That leaves 1, 2, 5, 12 and 13.

Ard VijnSeptember 24, 2016 6:16 AM

Both correct, and kudos for pointing out the RIGHT transformers film too!
That just leaves 2, 5 and 13...

ManateeAdvocateSeptember 24, 2016 11:54 AM

Cool. Thanks for the reply. I'm going to check it out now.

I am not going to bother wracking my image-filled (and addled) mind. Nevertheless, the pics made me realize how underrated Weaving is.

Andy OliverSeptember 29, 2016 7:01 AM

number 5 is Bodyline, a mini-series about the notorious 1932 (I think) Ashes series

Ard VijnSeptember 29, 2016 7:47 PM

Is the correct answer!
That just leaves 2 and 13...

Ard VijnSeptember 30, 2016 7:35 AM

Over on our Facebook page, Schuyler Z.a Morissette has identified number 13 as FRAUDS. Well done!
And there are two and a half hours left till the next quiz starts... will someone manage to figure out number 2 before then?

Ard VijnSeptember 30, 2016 5:55 PM

Well, that concludes last week's quiz. As usual, here are all the titles and the people who identified them. Not as usual, we have an un-guessed title in there. Alas...

1: PROOF (God of Joy)
2: LAST RIDE - unguessed
3: THE WOLFMAN (ManateeAdvocate)
4: THE MATRIX (ManateeAdvocate)
5: BODYLINE (Andy Oliver)
6: CLOUD ATLAS (Frank Dupont)
7: THE MATRIX RELOADED (ManateeAdvocate)
11: THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS (ManateeAdvocate)
13: FRAUDS (Schuyler Z.a Morissette)
14: V FOR VENDETTA (ManateeAdvocate)
