Wordle for movie buffs – Boxed is the daily knowledge game for movie buffs | Movies | Entertainment

Wordle has become one of the staples of the internet at this point. The daily thesaurus scraper, now owned by The New York Times, is part of the morning routines of people all over the world (including me!).

But if you’re more into your movies than your grammar, there’s a new game for you.


Framed has been running for 13 days at this point and only shows players a single screen of an infinite number of movies.

Players who think they know the answer will then have the option of typing in the name of the movie.

If you get it right – congratulations! If it’s wrong – don’t worry! A new screenshot from the same movie is posted, giving yet another chance to get it right.

Alternatively, if the player needs another hint, they can hit the jump button, nudging them to the next screen.

Players will have six chances to guess the correct movie, otherwise they will be put to shame.

You can start playing Frame HERE.

If you want to get hints for today’s game, scroll down.


The foreground shows a man’s back in the woods.

It’s not immediately obvious who this actor is, or what kind of time period he is in.

There’s something terribly magical about her surroundings – but what does that mean?


It’s the iconic David Bowie playing a legendary real-life scientist.

Although the British pop superstar is best known for his massive hits – such as Star Man, Let’s Dance and Life on Mars – he’s also been a big act.

It was one of Bowie’s last acting appearances, just ten years before his untimely death.


Surely that could have been a better clue, am I right?

Players got a glimpse of what looks like a dramatic courtroom.

Who is judged? What is their crime? Has anyone been wronged?

This may be more important to understanding the movie than you think.


This shot shows the now-revealed first clue actor – if you know your cinema.

This British star tinkers with something invisible in an elaborate workshop.

Vices and concoctions can be seen around him, and in the background a figure looms.

This invisible person wears a bowler hat and has darker features on his face. But are the two characters alike?


He’s a Marvel superstar that fans might know from the Black Widow movie.

The usually red-haired actress is now in her natural blonde, in a dress that looks particularly period-centric.

Could the star be in love with one of the protagonists?


A great machination is transported by horse and cart to an unknown destination in the middle of the night.

The director of this film certainly enjoys creating brash and subtle environments in Dark Knights.

Where is this machine going? Is this whole ordeal a secret? Will it ever be reused?

By now you should have figured out exactly what the movie is – but don’t worry if you haven’t; there is always tomorrow!

Play Framed here.
