Crypto-Trivia

The cryptogram below contained three trivia-style clues, as well as an implicit instruction as to how they are to be combined to yield the answer to the contest. To increase the challenge, certain names and words in the clues were replaced by their first initials (followed by a period) before the encryption took place.


 

 

(ABCD EFGHHBXN N.P. GE RBXN C. GXL C.Y., IYK GCEK BE WGEF GE E.W. BX AKT’E VHKVKEZL EZHBZE “FYZ E.W.W.,” GE JQZZX N.) T (IBFY “FYZ,” FO EZHBZE EFGHHBXN M.N. GE F.P. GXL M.D. GE L.E.) T (ABCD EFGHHBXN D.D. GE N.G. GXL W.W. GE W.)
 

When the message is decoded and the initials are replaced by the correct proper names, it reads:

(FILM STARRING GERARD BUTLER AS KING LEONIDAS AND LENA HEADEY, WHO ALSO IS CAST AS SARAH CONNOR IN FOX’S PROPOSED SERIES “THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES,” AS QUEEN GORGO) X (WITH “THE,” TV SERIES STARRING JOEL GRETSCH AS TOM BALDWIN AND JACQUELINE MCKENZIE AS DIANA SKOURIS) X (FILM STARRING MARCELLO MASTROIANNI AS GUIDO ANSELMI AND CLAUDIA CARDINALE AS CLAUDIA)

The clues yield 300 x 4400 x 8.5 = 11,220,000.
