We're not that daft. No clues here.

As the year draws to a close, we’re celebrating the end of a great year with the ultimate, fiendishly difficult, Christmas quiz. The theme of this quiz is ‘The End’ and in celebration of that magical moment when the end credit card comes up and the curtains began to move, we want to know if you can name films from our catalogue from just their final moments!

Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to get the clues which we’ll be giving out over the next few days.

THE PRIZE: The Ultimate Park Circus Christmas present.

Deadline 31 December.

The answers will be announced along with the winner early in the new year.
