Today's Framed answer

If you've taken a look at all of our hints but still haven't managed to crack what today's Framed answer is, we won't keep you in suspense any longer.

Framed #77 is...Jaws! Spielberg's classic creature feature sees the beach town of Amity Island plagued by a spate of shark attacks. Local police chief Martin Brody is then forced to hunt down the shark and save the population as Mayor Larry Vaughn is unwilling to keep the beaches closed.

As the death toll rises, Brody teams with oceanographer Matt Hooper and shark fisherman Quint to hunt the shark and put an end to its rampage.

Framed tips — how to be great at Framed

If you're looking for a few tips to help you up your Framed game, we've got a few pointers that we think will help make the next movie just that little bit easier to guess.

  • Use the search bar: Framed only counts a guess once you submit an answer, meaning that one of the best tips we can offer is to try out as many alternatives before using up one of those precious six guesses. Next time you're guessing, try entering a few movie titles in the search bar without hitting "submit". This will help you check whether you're on the right lines.
  • Not every film is in Framed's database: this is another reason to use the search bar, as you won't find every single movie ever released in Framed's database. 
  • Watch out for movies with multiple titles: if there are alternate titles involved (like Framed 17, for example), your best bet seems to be going with whatever title was used in the US.
  • Look for clues: Since Framed is a visual game, your best option is simply to try and identify major themes or icons from each still — a close-up on a dashboard likely means cars play an important part in the movie, for example.
  • Actors: following on from the above tip, actors are likely your most obvious visual clue here. Certain directors favor particular actors, so if you recognize a famous face anywhere in the picture that might help you identify other characteristics from the movie.
  • Try narrowing things down by genre. Genre is by no means a failsafe, but if you've just unsuccessfully tried out a movie, try and think of similar films in the same genre to help dream up more guesses.

What is Framed?

Like other Wordle spin-offs, Framed puts a slight spin on the much-loved word game. Instead of asking you to guess a random word every day, Framed presents you with six different stills from a movie and tasks you with figuring out which film you're looking at. 

The objective is to try and guess in as few attempts as possible so you can show off your top-quality film knowledge. If you want to join in on the fun, head over to the Framed site. 

If you're after more games to play, there are plenty more Wordle alternatives out there for film fans. Star Wars lovers should definitely check out the Star Wars-themed version called SWordle (opens in new tab), and there's also Lordle of the Rings (opens in new tab) which is perfect for Tolkien buffs.
