Hollywood temples

Since the Ta Prohm temple at Angkor now is being referred to as the Angelina Jolie temple I wonder if a Maya temple should be labelled the Mel Gibson temple (although the temples in that movie were non-existing ones, apart from perhaps the temple of the five stories at Edzna that shows up somewhere)? Another ancient monument famous for its participation in a Hollywood production is Al Khazneh at Petra where the end of the Indiana Jones III movie takes place. Are there any other such monuments whose fame among non-archaeologists comes from the movie industry?
