John's +1 is someone he brought for this specific reason - she's knowledgeable about movies. John is confident about two of them. He brings down Amy, his sister-in-law. She's a big Brad Pitt fan. She agrees that A is The Big Short and C is Troy. B is Munich but that isn't a Brad Pitt Movie, and D is Fury. John goes with Amy's gut.

John jokes that this made it much easlier for him. His goal was to get some life-changing money and he's right on the threshold. His students would tell him a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (the slave trade)
