Lots of Hollywood movies take place in space and on other planets, and since the director can't go to the other planets, locales on Earth have to suffice. As geologists know, there are landscapes on our planet that do a good job of looking otherworldly, and so geology became a central part of the movie plot.
Sooo....how well do you know your planet, and how well do you know sci-fi movies? Name as many localities as you can in the pictures below, and name the movies in which these landscapes starred.

And what places did I forget? What would you add to a quiz like this?
