100 Movie Trivia Team Names

100 Movie Trivia Team Names

In the world of pub trivia, choosing the perfect team name is one of the most important things you can do. But great names don’t grow on trees, so it always helps to have some inspiration to draw from. And it turns out that movies can be an excellent source of material.

Below you’ll find a list of the American Film Institute’s list of 100 Years…100 Movies – 10th Anniversary Edition. These are what they consider to be the 100 greatest movies of all time. Using these films, we’ve put together a list of movie trivia team names – one name inspired by each film.

Fair warning: some films and franchises naturally lend themselves to good content. There are countless Disney Trivia Team Names or Star Wars Trivia Team Names, for example. Team names for Schindler’s List or Platoon or Saving Private Ryan have the strong potential to border on being insensitive, and would be hard to do right. But even serious films have actors or actresses that could lend themselves to a punny or witty team name. So even if your favorite film is The Deer Hunter, you could still make a Christopher Walken or Robert De Niro name pun.

On that note, here is our list of 100 movie trivia team names.
