I am writing to inform you that I have constructed another set of clues that will each lead you to a movie title. To make it more interesting, each of the movies has something in common. Whatever that something is leads into the final clue.

1.

<h1>hit</h1>

2.

P227, M4

3.

iddqd

4.

A Konami hit performs music

Final.

Common(1,2,3,4)+FB

Hint:

Just to be even more confusing, the final answer is not a movie.

Hint #2:

The final answer is the name of something you could have seen in an auditorium.

I'm really not convinced that this is a well-constructed puzzle. One or more clues might be a bit of a stretch. I don't feel good about it. Someone will probably solve it anyway. :/

OK, let's have a go. 4 is quite the stretch, but all the other match perfectly (at least in my head).

First the common:

Common(1,2,3,4)+FB

The common is Mark Wahlberg, add FaceBook to that and we get Mark Zuckerberg and the answer is Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (a hip-hop group led my Mark Wahlberg).

Now the clues:

<h1>hit</h1>

This will make "hit" big. It will even make it "the biggest", so The Biggest Hit (1998)

P227, M4

The name of 2 guns, so 2 Guns (2013)

iddqd

A cheat code that will make you invincible in doom, so Invincible (2006)

A Konami hit performs music

Now this one will be a stretch... Konami, had this game Guitar Freaks. Later Guitar Heroes popped up. In Guitar Heroes there was this character, who is named Izzy, which is the nickname of the titular character of Rock Star (2011) Thanks to Cerberus's answer, this should actually be Contraband (2012), derived from Contra - a Konami game (part of Konami Classics Series: Arcade Hits), and band.

  • $\begingroup$ I knew it had something to do with Mark Wahlberg and eventually Zuckerburg, but couldn't get all the connects. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 18 '15 at 10:41
  • $\begingroup$ So close! Wrong on the final answer, though. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Jun 18 '15 at 12:27

In addition to dmg's answer, the fourth clue most likely refers to

Contraband (2012), Contra+band, of which the cast also includes Mark Wahlberg.

This is partial answer. As each clue lead to a movie title,

First clue says

Biggest hit, I am not sure about parameters to define biggest hit : So Avatar(2009) or The Big Hit(1998)

Second clue

P227, M4 both are guns so, Guns(1990) or 2 Guns(2013)

Third clue

iddhq is cheat code for shooter game Doom which gives God mode. Doom(2005) is also a movie.

Fourth clue

Movies related to Konami games, Silent Hill(2006) or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(2014)

All 4 movies suggest answer is related to war, killing, guns.

Note that this is just a partial answer...

The first clue leads to the following:

The largest hit. In the HTML code <h1>hit</h1> h1 means a header, and it is the largest one.

The fourth clue(not really sure...)

Konami Digital Entertainment is an Arcade Game Company famous for making games such as YUGIOH! and series such as TMNT. But I do not understand how Konami is related with music.

Edit(for 4):

A game company and music, what do they have in common? -- Entertainment! This must somehow be related to the answer.

Another partial answer...

2.

2 Guns. P227 and M4 are both guns.

3.

Doom. iddqd is the cheat code to activate God mode in the cult classic game Doom.
