It happens quite a lot in action and scifi movies, though shows and movies based on comic books seem to like this trope quite a lot. Also a common Anime Opening trope. It is somewhat common in a fantasy setup with magic or psychic powers to have someone perform this trope straight only for their latent abilities to trigger thus subverting the "futile" part of this trope.
