* Played with in ''Film/BabylonAD'', when Toorop plots their journey on a high-tec map that includes pop-up information. They haven't taken the journey yet, so it serves as exposition, but it's clearly influenced by the map version of this trope.

* Parodied in ''TinyToonAdventures.'' The red Indiana Jones travel montage line moves across the map. Cut to Buster Bunny sitting on top of the red line, muttering, "Someday I'm gonna have to buy an actual plane."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/AgathaChristiesGreatDetectivesPoirotAndMarple'' uses the method of having a moving line on a map to indicate traveling long distances. A notable case can be seen in the four chapters dedicated to ''Literature/TheABCMurders''.

* Played painfully straight in ''Anime/TheDaggerOfKamui'' to show the protagonist's trek across various parts of the globe.



[[folder:Film]]
* Appears in all four ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' films, mainly as a homage to its use in the 1930s serials which inspired the movies.
* The beginning of ''{{Robin Hood Men in Tights}}'', as Robin swims his way from Jerusalem to England.

* Subverted cleverly in 2005's ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'': In a {{Flashback}}, young Willy runs away from home to become a chocolatier, and the next moment we see him striding forward as flags of many nations flutter past him. It all comes to an end, though, when a guard tells him the Hall of Flags is closing for the night.
* Parodied in the ''ArbyNTheChief'' movie, when Chief is escaping from LA it zooms out to the lines, except that since Chief has no idea where he is going, the lines are a tangled mess.
* Tooki Tooki Bird in the ''GeorgeOfTheJungle'' movie.
* In the spoof film ''Film/TopSecret'', they show this as a set of dots working along a streetmap: then have them eaten by Pac-Man.
* The live ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' movie shows the red line on a map version of this; showing the Grinch traveling through the "dump-it to Krumpit" garbage chute out of Whoville to the top of Mount Krumpit.
* ''Film/TheWarriors'' opens with the leaders of titular gang traveling to The Bronx. The rest of the movie is them leaving it.
* Used in ''{{Tooth}}'' to show the kids travelling across the country.

mess.



* The movie ''Film/ImJuli'' depicts a journey through half of Europe, where Romania is portrayed entirely through still shots - not by choice, but because the Romanian government denied their shooting permit.
* Happens in the ''Film/VanHelsing'' movie.
* Used briefly in the ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' movie.
* ''[[Film/RoadTo Road to Zanzibar]]'', of course, uses the comedy version where the line starts meandering chaotically.
* The ''Film/JamesBond'' movie ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' pans over a map to show a ride with the Oriental Express through Yugoslavia. A cheap method but understandable. With a budget of only 2 million USD Bond was still low budget at that time back in 1963.
* ''Film/TheGunsOfNavarone''. In true ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' style! The travel around the Aegean as they start their mission is represented by reduced-opacity shots of planes in flight and a map background.
* Used in ''The Rules Of Attraction'' when Victor travels around in Europe.



** Also, the closing credits of the sequel, showing Lightning [=McQueen=] and Mater travelling across the world and visiting car versions of various world landmarks other than the ones in Japan, France, Italy, and England (ie The Sagrada Familia cathedral in Spain shaped like sparkplugs, windmills in the Netherlands shaped like cooling fans, the Atomium in Belgium shaped like car pistons, the Parthenon in Greece shaped like a car's radiator, St. Basil's cathedral in Russia shaped like a car's diffrential casing, the Pyramids of Egypt shaped like the Mitsubishi logo, a rock structure in Africa shaped like a mix between a pickup truck and [[Disney/TheLionKing Pride Rock]], the Dubai hotel in the United Arab Emirates shaped like a car's tailfin, the Taj Mahal in India shaped like a car engine, Angkor Wat in Thailand shaped like more sparkplugs, the Petronas towers in Malaysia shaped like a truck's smokestacks, the Great Wall of China shaped like a highway, the Sydney Opera House in Australia shaped like more car tailfins, the JesusChrist statue in Brazil shaped like a Mercedes Gullwing, etc) before returning to Radiator Springs.

* ''Film/HomewardBoundTheIncredibleJourney'' subverts this. When the pets initially set off to find their owners, the screen dissolves into a physical map of California as if this trope was being invoked. Then suddenly a teacher's pointer whaps onto the map - we soon see it's actually a pull-down classroom map of California with the teacher talking about the Sierra Nevadas, while the kids are staring out the window wondering about them.
* Played straight in ''Film/TheRebound'' as a way of showing one of the main characters gaining maturity and life experience.
* Parodied in ''Film/TheMuppets'' with the car's "Travel by Map" button. Its even a plot point- unlike conventional travel, no time elapses when you travel this way.



* Done in ''Film/SkyCaptainAndTheWorldOfTomorrow'', with map grid lines and place names overlayed on the scenery they fly over. As with ''Indiana Jones'', this is an aspect of the film's nature as an homage to 1930s pulp fiction.
* A possible parody in ''Film/{{Hook}}'': As Peter Pan takes flight for the first time, he flies over Neverland and you see map grid lines and a large map compass beneath the Neverland sea.
* A comedy one in ''Film/CannibalWomenInTheAvocadoJungleOfDeath'', possibly because of the guide (played by BillMaher).
* Played straight in the opening scene of ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', where it is used to show the refugee trail from Paris to Casablanca. Bonus points because it starts with a shot a of the globe and zooms in to Europe/Northern Africa.
* In ''TheLegoMovie'', 80s astronaut minifig Benny finally gets to build a spaceship. The scene then gets an rapid-fire montage of the heroes flying through all the sets, with Benny screaming "SPACESHIP!" with each passover.
* In the form of [[ArtShift animations]] in ''Film/YouthInRevolt''.
%% * ''Film/TheWolfman2010''
* One shows up in ''Film/KillBill'' when The Bride flies to Japan.
