As anyone who has participated in a game of movie trivia can tell you, few sources are as helpful when it comes to getting answers as the Internet Movie Database, with IMDb themselves announcing today that they'll be launching a virtual trivia event that fans can take part in, with the inaugural event celebrating all things Marvel. As if earning bragging rights on a leaderboard isn't enough of an incentive, select winners will also be eligible for prizes, including various Fire TV devices and IMDb-branded merchandise. The first game will be taking place on Tuesday, June 8th. Fans can head to IMDbtrivia.com to register for the event.
Per press release, "IMDb, the world's most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content, today announced the launch of IMDb Trivia, a live monthly virtual game that lets entertainment fans connect with each other and put their knowledge of movies and TV shows to the test.
