Today not only the current year ends but also Sir Anthony Hopkins turns 81 and can look back on an extensive acting career. So in honour of his life of acting and due to popular demand we're starting a new topic challenge. From 2018-12-31 12:00 UTC to 2019-01-11 23:00 UTC we're challenging you to all your great questions about Anthony Hopkins and the films he was in.1

Once the challenge is over, we'll tally the results and winners (by question score) here. Also don't forget to suggest and vote for new topics for our next possible challenge.

    @KharoBangdo It seems to be a more general question. But the pactical truth is...I simply missed it for exactly that reason. I don't really check every single question. I primarily go by tags and titles.
