Extinction Level Event: 25 Landmarks Destroyed in Film and TV

The Easter Island Statues (as destroyed in Mars Attacks!)

City: Easter Island
Also Destroyed In: n/a

This is among the best landmark destructions ever put to celluloid. The only reason it isn't more culturally significant is that we know a lot of you slept through middle school geography and don't even know what the hell Easter Island is. Easter Island is one of the least-inhabited islands on Earth, populated mostly by stone heads instead of, like, people. Granted, toppling them doesn't carry the same weight as blowing up New York or London, but we defy you to find a more entertaining weapon of mass destruction than an intergalactic bowling ball.
