* When the American Film Institute compiled their list of "100 Years... 100 Heroes & Villains" in 2003, Franchise/HannibalLecter was named the #1 movie villain of all time, while [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] was #3, Franchise/JamesBond was named the #3 movie hero of all time, and two different characters from ''Star Wars'' (Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo) both made the heroes list. Fast-forward 16 years: if you still believe that list, then Creator/MadsMikkelsen may very well be the King of the Villains. He not only '''is''' [[Series/{{Hannibal}} Hannibal Lecter]], he's also [[Film/CasinoRoyale the very first bad guy that James Bond ever fought]], and [[Film/RogueOne the man who built the Death Star]] to boot.

** Also worth noting was the [[NeverTrustATrailer advertising campaign]] making it look like it's a child-friendly animal movie. But once it got to the second half, it became [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids nightmare-inducing social commentary that only adults would understand]]. Over a year later since ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'s'' release, and all of a sudden it's back to being a child-friendly animal movie again, except this time for the sake of [[ShipTease shipping fuel]] for [[PortmanteauCoupleNaming WildeHopps]] rather than false advertising like before the movie was released.

** Also hilarious was the [[NeverTrustATrailer advertising campaign]] making it look like it's a child-friendly buddy-cop movie.

* ''The President's Analyst'', from 1967, has the title character (James Coburn) excitedly talking about his first session with his girlfriend: "You'd think he'd spend all his time worrying about China, or Russia? ...hasn't slept in ''eight'' nights worrying about ''Libya!''"

* ''Film/PowerRangers2017'': In 2015, a professional-level FanFilm named ''Power/Rangers'' was released as part of the "Bootleg Universe" that specifically parodied the idea of a DarkerAndEdgier reboot of a cheesy '90s property aimed at kids, which gained enough traction for several former cast members of the show to comment on it. Not only is the "gritty reboot" played completely straight here, but some of those same people even made cameo appearances.

* The thriller ''Outbound'' has Matilda, played by Creator/AnaUlaru. In the movie, Matilda is a prisoner for the crime of prostitution, and one of the people she ends up finding is her ex-pimp. Fast-forward to ''Series/EmeraldCity'', where Ularu plays Mistress West, [[MissKitty the owner of a brothel]].



*** Triply so when you find out that [[spoiler:the governments were building giant walls to protect them from the Kaiju... which fail miserably]].
*** ''Quadruply'' so, even; the similarities between Newt and Hanji Zoe, the perky, titan-obsessed mad scientist of that series, are not lost on fandom.

** ''Film/RogueOne'' retroactively makes the opening of ''A New Hope'' a hilarious example of RefugeInAudacity: Princess Leia [[BlatantLies tells Darth Vader that she and her ship were on a diplomatic mission]], despite Vader having ''personally'' witnessed the ship hightailing it from the Battle of Scarif with the stolen data on board.
