Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' secretly started all those dark and edgy superhero films because Creator/AngLee was able to depict repressed emotions, an abusive father and a semi-corrupt military.

* ''Film/SnowWhiteATaleofTerror''. Even more so than the original fairytale.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' was particularly dark, even after the previous film's destruction of Vulcan, with a villain whose attacks on Starfleet recalled al-Qaeda terrorism and [[spoiler:the revelation of a semi-fascist xenophobic warmongering faction within Starfleet]].

Added DiffLines:

*The Spawn reboot movie is following the R superhero movie tend and will be targeting a more mature audience. It will also have less superhero elements and will be more of a horror movie. The 90's spawn movie was the opposite of this (witch resulted and backlash from fans and critics).

* The ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries'' in general. Robots are getting ripped apart, blown up, or their faces bifurcated. The added sex appeal (and not much else) is supplied by Megan Fox. Although amputation, decapitation and on at least one occasion, crucifixion, were all features of the 80s transformers comics. And ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' cranks it UpToEleven, with [[spoiler: humans being assassinated]], as well as having [[spoiler: Sentinel Prime launch a full scale Decepticon assault on Earth, complete with scenes of carnage.]]

** Apparently ''Film/TheLastJedi'' is going to be ''even darker'' than ''TFA'', and the teaser poster even has a '''red''' logo to boot!

** Even the 1982 Original was a D&E risk on Disney's part, their second attempt after ''Film/TheBlackHole''. Recall that 5 years earlier, they released ''Film/PetesDragon1977'', which was one of their most saccharine entries. The classic had a few nasty deaths (including an InvoluntaryBattleToTheDeath), ColdBloodedTorture, and some heavy-duty religious themes. Then, there's the infamous DeletedScene that's just shy of a full-blown sexual encounter...
** The ''animated series'' entry, ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' manages to get even more Grimdark. Scenes of mass murder, witch hunts over the Renegade, a HeroWithBadPublicity. And Tron himself tries to ''kill his apprentice'' in cold blood for intervening in a rampage of revenge against the man who tortured him. It's saying a lot about the franchise when one of the LighterAndSofter entries is a [[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh first-person shooter]] that was [[CanonDiscontinuity exiled from canon]].

* According to ''The Tracking Board'', the [[Film/SonicTheHedgehog film adaptation]] for ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is supposedly getting this treatment, though because a script has not yet been written, it's too early to tell.

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'' similarly makes great use of its R rating; featuring much more brutal violence than previous Wolverine films and a story that deals with many themes of mortality and TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior from X-23 [[spoiler: and a finale that results in many characters from the previous films being KilledOffForReal, including Logan himself]].
