This week's question: A mysterious 10-foot tall, stainless steel monolith was discovered in a remote desert canyon in southeast Utah, and then vanished just days later. Some suspect the unexplained object was the work of a prankster artist — others say it was aliens. If Hollywood were to make a movie about the true story behind this mystery monolith, what would it be titled?
