Quote... to be made.

Jeez.

I know, right. I blame the question. The Star Wars movie originally released in 1977 is clearer, should you want people to understand. That and, stating that you're looking for a prequal movie, not a television or Internet-based broadcast as the answer, should that be the case. Ambiguous questions lead to confusion. Confusion leads to suffering. Suffering leads to... Or something like that. 
Rimmer: "Aliens."

Lister: "Oh God, aliens... Your explanation for anything slightly peculiar is aliens, isn't it?

Rimmer: "Well, we didn't use it all, Lister. Who did?"

Lister: "Rimmer, aliens used our bog roll?"

I suppose I better let the hoi-polloi know the answers...

Science Fiction and Fantasy answers

1   The Nostromo is the ship in the film 'Alien'.

2   A NEWT is a Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test, the equivalent of A levels.

3   Judge Dredd is the lawman of the future.

4   Dragonlance is based on Dungeons and Dragons.

5   'And another thing' is the sixth book in the increasingly misnamed Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy trilogy.

6   Sindarin and Quenya are languages of the elves developed by J.R.R. Tolkien.

7   "In the darkness of the future there is only war" is the promise of Warhammer 40,000. They may have just
written 40K – that is an acceptable answer. If they have put just Warhammer, then half a point, and I'm being kind as that is the fantasy version of the game.

8   David Bowie is in Labyrinth.

9   The last scene of Rogue One ends just before the original Star Wars starts

10   It is Bilbo's hundred and eleventh – or eleventy one – birthday, and Frodo's thirty third – half a point each.
I have neither the time nor the crayons to explain why you are wrong.

Some of those you can get if you have general pop knowledge.

If, like me, you have very little, you'll be stuffed!

Still going?

Number 10 is "Papa Don't Preach", number 2 is probably "Jolene". Otherwise not a scooby.

4   "Common People" is a response to "Park Life".

5   Chuck Berry sang "Back in the U.S.A."
