* Fans of Disney's ''HighSchoolMusical'' have been shipping Chad and Ryan ever since the second movie had them sing a song featuring a good number of innuendos (including, but not limited to: Ryan's ''"You'll never know if you never try"'' and Chad's ''"I'll show you how I swing"'') while holding onto a phallic object (a baseball bat, seeing as they were playing baseball, a game with terms that commonly serve as metaphors for sex) and then having them [[SexyShirtSwitch wear each other's clothes]] afterwards with no explanations. The fact that Chad is in a (albeit very casual) relationship with Taylor and Ryan eventually finds a love interest in Kelsi in the third movie has not deterred shippers the slightest. Justified because the Chad/Taylor and Ryan/Kelsi relationships seem [[PairTheSpares too convenient]], and Chad and Ryan ''did'' have a lot more chemistry with each other during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7B9Nv-Z9ag that dance number]] than with their respective girlfriends.
** Interestingly, Chad/Ryan also seem to be more popular than series OfficialCouple Troy/Gabriella, with the amount of fanfiction for Chad/Ryan far surpassing that for Troy/Gabriella. [[note]]over four times as many in fact on AO3[[/note]]

combined Steve/Bruce/Tony) tend to be more popular than those characters with their het love interests such as Jane, Pepper, Peggy, and Betty, mostly due to the fact that those characters are nearly/completely absent from the film (or, in Peggy's case, old).
** However, this only applied to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', and not to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse movies that those characters originated in. But in the case of Captain America, Steve/Bucky tends to heavily rival, if not eclipse, Steve/Peggy and Steve/Tony in many fan circles. Which makes sense -- Steve's relationship with Bucky is arguably the biggest overarching theme of his
series OfficialCouple Troy/Gabriella, of films, and by extension, his character arc.
*** And the ''Film/{{Thor}}'' movies, where Thor/Sif and Thor/Loki are both more popular than Thor/Jane.
** Loki/Black Widow often gets this treatment thanks to a healthy dose of FoeYay they recieved in the film when they're not slashing Loki
with the amount male members of fanfiction The Avengers. It's enough to rival, even eclipse, fans of Hawkeye/Black Widow.
** ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' also gives us the [[ImpliedTrope heavily-hinted]] but not outright canon ship of Black Widow/Hawkeye. Unfortunately
for Chad/Ryan far surpassing its fans, it was sunk in ''Age of Ultron'' [[spoiler:thanks to TheReveal that for Troy/Gabriella. [[note]]over four times Hawkeye is HappilyMarried with kids]]; as many a result people started pairing up Natasha with either Steve, based on their strong chemistry in ''Winter Soldier'', or Bucky, based on their canonical relationship in the comics.
* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'':
** Inverted. Although the movie hasn't even come out yet, pre-release implications that Bruce Banner and Black Widow would become a couple have been met with fairly unanimous disapproval and mockery from the fanbase, with both shippers and nonshippers accusing the two of being StrangledByTheRedString. Time will tell whether fan opinion is premature or whether it will upgrade to a straight example or at least a BrokenBase, but the initial reaction combined with the
fact on AO3[[/note]]that Bruce was already one of the least popular partners for Black Widow despite her LauncherOfAThousandShips status indicates a rather steep uphill battle for approval.
** Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is currently starting to be shipped with two people: Clint Barton and Steve Rogers. The first for the use of AllLoveIsUnrequited and giving her an epic speech, and the second for supporting and helping the twins and being... [[NiceGuy Steve Rogers]].
** Possibly as popular as the above would be Wanda/Vision, for all the ShipTease, and the added bonus of them being a couple in the comics.
* [[LesYay Jess/Jules]] is this in ''Film/BendItLikeBeckham''.
* ''Film/BillAndTed'' has, well, [=Bill/Ted=]. The fact that their actual girlfriends qualify as [[SatelliteLoveInterest Satellite Love Interests]] helps.



* Disney's black sheep turned cult classic movie-musical ''{{Newsies}}'' has a small but rabid fandom that definitely seems to prefer [[HoYay Jack and David]], instead of the canon Jack and Sarah, sister of David. [[SatelliteLoveInterest It's not hard to see why.]]
* There was a good amount of fans shipping Gandalf and Galadriel from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' but then [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZZloOPRnQ8 that one scene from the Hobbit]] blew it up. The other movies and the RL relationship between the actors that played them do nothing but fuel the fire.

* Fans of the Creator/RupertGrint movie ''Film/{{Cherrybomb}}'' can generally be split into two categories: devoted [[HoYay Malachy/Luke]] shippers who simply ignore Michelle's existence; and batshit crazy, ''foaming-at-the-mouth'' Malachy/Luke shippers who openly detest Michelle and loudly [[DieForOurShip wish her dead]]. This is
a small but rabid fandom pretty extreme reaction given that definitely in canon, both guys are seemingly straight and spend most of the movie competing for Michelle's affections. That said, several cast members have alluded to the strong homoerotic subtext of Malachy and Luke's relationship, so it probably doesn't exist ''entirely'' in the minds of [[YaoiFangirl yaoi fangirls]].

** Logan/Rogue is much more popular than Logan/Jean or Bobby/Rogue, and it's actually the #1 couple of the original trilogy.
** Charles/Erik is ''the'' official pairing in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', even according to certain screenwriters and actors. It's incorporated even in fics that involve the younger X-Men (by having them act as parents), and those who do ship Erik/Raven or Charles/Moira are a small minority. Charles/Erik even managed to supplant Logan/Rogue as the most popular pairing of the film series--just look at the [[http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Logan*s*Rogue%20(X-Men)/works difference]] in the sheer [[http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Erik%20Lehnsherr*s*Charles%20Xavier/works number]] of stories on ''Archive of Our Own'' for proof. Creator/JamesMcAvoy wasn't kidding when he called it the "[[https://vimeo.com/84781468#t=4m35s Brangelina of X-Men]]"; Cherik has become such a phenomenon that British TV host [[Series/TheGrahamNortonShow Graham Norton]] took notice of it and showed [=McAvoy=] and Fassbender some of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrwnzT8vK0w fanart and fanfiction]]. On the other side of the pond, [[Series/{{Conan}} Conan O'Brien]]'s [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x320yqo interview with the two actors]] was almost exclusively about their onscreen/offscreen HoYay, and a Cherik fanvid was screened at the end.

* The ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned'' fandom in general favors the vampire/vampire pairing Lestat/Akasha over the human/vampire pairing Lestat/Jesse. This despite Akasha being portrayed as pure evil and a bloodthirsty megalomaniac who wants to drink the world dry, Akasha had EvilIsSexy going for her while Jesse was made into a DamselScrappy and mousy VampireVannabe who just got on viewers' nerves.
* A chunk of the ''Film/NowVoyager'' audience seem to prefer Dr Jaquith as a romantic partner for Charlotte, finding Jerry a little dull in comparison to the charming Jaquith. Bette Davis herself said that she imagined Charlotte marrying Dr Jaquith after the film ended, as Jerry was 'too weak' for Charlotte.

The sequel [[PanderingToTheBase panders]] to this by making Katie into a [[TookALevelInJerkAss cheating bitch]] out of nowhere, and featuring a kiss between Dave and Mindy at the charming Jaquith. Bette Davis herself said film's end.
* By ''far'', the most popular pairing in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' fanfic is Harry/Eggsy. ''Despite'' the fact

* ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' and Diaval become popular almost as soon as
the film ended, as Jerry was 'too weak' released.

The fact that the film makers [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally planned on them]] ''being'' an [[UnholyMatrimony actual couple]] just adds fuel to the fire.

for Charlotte.those who like LesYay, there's shipping Maleficent with said child, Aurora, in a similar vein to the FanPreferredCouple of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', [[IncestYayShipping Anna/Elsa]].

* Ryan and Natalie from ''Film/UpInTheAir'', mostly due to the fact that in the final act it's revealed Ryan's love interest, Alex, [[spoiler: is married with a family]].
* Fans of ''Film/AnEducation'' like to pair Jenny with Danny, especially since her love interest in the film [[spoiler: is married]].
* Mary Poppins and Bert are this in ''Film/MaryPoppins'', in large part due to Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke's chemistry. It is even implied to be made canon in the ''Broadway Musical'' when [[spoiler: she kisses him on the cheek]].
* ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' and Diaval become popular almost as soon as the film was released. If you have the VillainProtagonist and her [[TheDragon Dragon]] act LikeAnOldMarriedCouple and practically raise a child together, then you can expect the fans to start shipping them. The fact that the film makers [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally planned on them]] ''being'' an [[UnholyMatrimony actual couple]] just adds fuel to the fire.
** Or, for those who like LesYay, there's shipping Maleficent with said child, Aurora, in a similar vein to the FanPreferredCouple of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', [[IncestYayShipping Anna/Elsa]].
* Fans of ''Film/KickAss'' tend to prefer shipping Dave/Kick-Ass with Mindy/Hit-Girl, instead of his official love interest Katie. The sequel [[PanderingToTheBase panders]] to this by making Katie into a [[TookALevelInJerkAss cheating bitch]] out of nowhere, and featuring a kiss between Dave and Mindy at the film's end.
* BillAndTed has, well, [=Bill/Ted=]. The fact that their actual girlfriends qualify as [[SatelliteLoveInterest Satellite Love Interests]] helps.
* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'':
** Inverted. Although the movie hasn't even come out yet, pre-release implications that Bruce Banner and Black Widow would become a couple have been met with fairly unanimous disapproval and mockery from the fanbase, with both shippers and nonshippers accusing the two of being StrangledByTheRedString. Time will tell whether fan opinion is premature or whether it will upgrade to a straight example or at least a BrokenBase, but the initial reaction combined with the fact that Bruce was already one of the least popular partners for Black Widow despite her LauncherOfAThousandShips status indicates a rather steep uphill battle for approval.
** Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is currently starting to be shipped with two people: Clint Barton and Steve Rogers. The first for the use of AllLoveIsUnrequited and giving her an epic speech, and the second for supporting and helping the twins and being... [[NiceGuy Steve Rogers]].
** Possibly as popular as the above would be Wanda/Vision, for all the ShipTease, and the added bonus of them being a couple in the comics.
* By ''far'', the most popular pairing in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' fanfic is Harry/Eggsy. ''Despite'' the fact that [[spoiler: Harry was believed to have died. [[Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle The sequel]] hints that's not true.]]
* While nothing actually happens in ''Film/SchoolOfRock'', a lot of people like to imagine that Dewey and Ms Mullins dated after the Battle of the Bands. This is mainly brought on by the bar scene, where Dewey is able to get her to let her hair down a little.
* In the film adaptation of ''Film/TheHobbit'', the most popular ship among fans is Thorin/Bilbo. Runner ups for the two, individually, are Bofur/Bilbo and [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Dwalin/Thorin]] and [[FoeYay Thranduil/Thorin]].
** There are actually quite a few ships that are popular among the fans, and with many different characters, including [[MayflyDecemberRomance Thranduil/Bard]], [[IncestYayShipping Fili/Kili]], [[InterspeciesRomance Kili/Tauriel]], Dwalin/Ori, Dwalin/Nori, to name a few.

* Fans of Disney's ''HighSchoolMusical'' have been shipping Chad and Ryan ever since the second movie had them sing a song featuring a good number of innuendos (including, but not limited to: Ryan's ''"You'll never know if you never try"'' and Chad's ''"I'll show you how I swing"'') and then having them [[SexyShirtSwitch wear each other's clothes]] afterwards with no explanations. The fact that Chad is in a (albeit very casual) relationship with Taylor and Ryan eventually finds a love interest in Kelsi in the third movie has not deterred shippers the slightest. Justified because the Chad/Taylor and Ryan/Kelsi relationships seem [[PairTheSpares too convenient]], and Chad and Ryan ''did'' have a lot more chemistry with each other during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7B9Nv-Z9ag that dance number]] than with their respective girlfriends.

*** When the film came out, it did ''not'' take long for fans to start shipping [[TragicVillain Kylo Ren]] with [[ActionGirl Rey]]. Fans were intrigued by the characters' intense [[FoeRomanceSubtext interactions]], considering them to be ''much'' more interesting and ripe with [[FanficFuel possibilities]] than the potential for a Rey/Finn romance. The fact that it is strongly suggested that Kylo Ren has a VillainousCrush on Rey--he bridal carries her, watches her sleep and even volunteers to be her teacher--only added fuel to the fire. However, the ship is the source of a major BrokenBase, with many other fans disliking FoeYay or theorizing that they might end up being related.

*** Actually the ship was met with derision for pairing up the mass murderer who kidnapped the terrified Rey against her will. Holding her in an interrogation room helpless and in obvious terror while telling her [[UnfortunateImplications he can take anything he wants.]] Attempting to [[MindRape force himself into her mind. Causing her obvious trauma and pain]] Only failing when she fought back with the force.[[{{Patricide}} Killing the nearest thing to a father figure in front of her, and his actual father.]] Slamming her into a tree and mortally wounding her best friend who tried to stop him. Funny enough the whole possible incest thing is the least problematic thing some fans have with that ship.
*** Funny enough, is not the aptly named Reylo who wins the fan favorite race in both amounts of fanart and fanfiction, but the practically non existent canon relationship between [[TragicVillain Kylo Ren]] and [[KnightTemplar General Hux]]. It quite literally doubles the amount of works on Archive of our Own for the first one, and keeps winning momentum. See [[http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Rey*s*Ben%20Solo%20%7C%20Kylo%20Ren/works here]] and [[http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Hux*s*Ben%20Solo%20%7C%20Kylo%20Ren/works here]]. It doesn't help that Reylo has been branded as abusive and problematic in many parts of the fandom, creating a massive backlash against it.

* There was a good amount of fans shipping Gandalf and Galadriel from {{Lord of the Rings}} but then [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZZloOPRnQ8 that one scene from the Hobbit]] blew it up. The other movies and the RL relationship between the actors that played them do nothing but fuel the fire.
