Well, if we're talking about closeups of characters (I'm going by how recognizable It is and looking at movies that have characters with very distinctive looks.):

Star Wars-Darth Vader
Iron Man (MCU movies in general)
They Live-The Aliens
Alien-The Alien
Men In Black
James Bond shouldn't be too hard to make recognizable
Frankenstein
The Matrix-Agent Smith (Would probably be tough to distinguish this one from MiB if you did Neo. Agent Smith just has that expression and attitude that sets him apart.)
The Terminator-T-800 with damaged eye.
X-Men movies-any
Enemy Mine
Star Trek, probably? I don't think there's a more iconic spaceship than the USS Enterprise.

Damn it! I should have thought of that!
Nice! Thank you for the suggestions! But they're not just face closeups, sometimes iconic scenes as well.

Horror, science-fiction, fantasy all usually have easy to distinguish visuals.
From others: Dr. House, CSI, Twin Peaks

WHEEL!
OF!
FORTUNE!!!!
Also now that I think about it, maybe Pacific Rim, or Hellboy, too.
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

A lot of cartoon characters are really recognizable because they have bizarre body shapes instead of just looking like humans. Especially if you get the character in the middle of some kind of exaggerated movement, like sneaking quietly with long steps, or hitting someone with a mallet, or screaming. Spongebob Squarepants, Bugs Bunny, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Bender, Goku, or Marge Simpson would all be instantly recognizable.

A lot of title screens for TV shows that have an opening sequence would also be pretty recognizable. Modern live-action shows don't have these any more, but all older shows do, as do modern cartoons. You can tell what these are immediately:

This definitely dates me but:

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

Simpsons, TMNT, or any other very popular and distinctive cartoons, would translate well to a small size.

Any TV show or movie that got an NES game adaptation could also work (as you'd have sprites to reference!)
