Before launching our Friday Folly, a quick pointer to the new Storm poll in action. Vote for your favourite typo headline – even if you didn’t play the game midweek.
Now for the fun. Below is a bank of four-letter movies. Choose from these, or others you recall, or a movie of any length, where you can jumble in a letter to make a fake sequel. FORTY, say, which is TROY + F, could be about Achilles with gout in his heel. Or Helen’s facelift.
In the same vein, BLISS + A = BASILS: Harry Joy quits the honey-making fantasy to run a boutique hotel in Torquay. While FINALES (ALIENS + F) is the last Ripley chapter, I promise. You get the drift. Pick any movie and pitch your best sequel as a synopsis.

Couldn’t think of a Q-candidate in the four-bunch to allow for a pangram sequence… (Pitch any sequel in the Comments below. Best wins our TGIF admiration.)
