Movie Screenshot Contest - Bits to be won!

I propose a little game, I post a bunch of images from random movies out there and people try to identify the name of the character and the movie.

Each correct answer earns a point, at the end of the contest I'll give some Bits to those with the most points.

The rules:
  • I'll post only a few pictures at a time, as they get answered more will be posted. If people get stuck and things get slow, I'll post a couple more as well.
  • If you only get the movie name or the character name but not both correct, it's not worth any points.
  • If there's multiple characters in the shot, any one character will do unless explicitly stated otherwise along with the image.
  • When posting your answers, don't quote the original image as it will waste bandwidth and screen space. But make sure to quote the question number you are answering.
  • If multiple people answer, the earliest dated correct post will be awarded the point. In the event of a post being edited, the date of the last edit will be used to determine the post date so don't edit your post unless you really have to!
Prizes:
I'll be putting up 100,000 Bits in prizes.
If only one person competes, the prize will not be given but I'll still complete the competition in case someone comes late to the game. If three or less people compete, all prizes will be combined into one big first place prize only.

If no one competes, I'll keep going until I get too depressed to continue and give up Smilie Smilie

If more than 3 people compete, the prizes will be as follows:
1st place: 60,000 bits
2nd place: 30,000 bits
3rd place: 10,000 bits

If people wish to donate additional bits to the prize pool to make it more interesting, it will be divided amongst the the places the same way as the above.

A running scoreboard will be kept here in the first post.

pludi: 18
Perderabo: 8
vino: 5
Ygor: 1
reborg: 3

Still unanswered:
12, 24, 23, 37, 38, 40
