Small Details From Movies That Take Place On Other Planets

List Rules
Vote up the most out of this world details.

Whether they're set on Mars or an alien terrain from a galaxy far, far away, movies that place on other planets thrill viewers with science-fiction, heroics, and suspense. With all the work that goes into creating these worlds, however, sometimes the smallest details are what really make them shine. Fans online certainly seem to think so and have shared many of their favorites online. For example, in Avatar, when visiting an abandoned school on Pandora, Norm finds an old copy of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, which is quite fitting for the plight of the Na'vi. In The Martian, Mark strikes a familiar 'thumbs up' pose when taking a photo for NASA-- he's mimicking Fonzie from Happy Days, which is the only TV show he has available in his habitat. Of course, no list featuring other planets would be complete with some Star Wars. If you've ever wondered why R2D2 can never seem to stay put when they're told to, blame Anakin Skywalker. In Revenge of the Sith, he tells R2D2 to stay behind but never returns to get him.
