* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy directed by Creator/PeterJackson, it can be said, effectively brought HighFantasy (or perhaps even MedievalEuropeanFantasy) in general to the attention of film audiences, but results from attempted films of this genre have been mixed, on one hand, we got successes like ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. On the other; commercial flops like ''Film/{{Eragon}}''.

** The above revival also ensured that subsequent films would be DarkerAndEdgier teenage- and adult-oriented films rather than the all-ages kind that had been before, such as ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and ''Film/ManOfSteel''. However, family-marketed superhero films are on the rise again, thanks to 2012's ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and 2014's ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' and ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014''. Additionally, a reboot of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' is slated for 2017.

** The act that would truly re-ignite the Boy Band craze formed on the next season of the hit UK show Series/TheXFactor. Music/OneDirection were put together by Simon Cowell after their members narrowly missed the cut as solo acts. Although the group finished third, their debut single "What Makes You Beautiful" debuted at #1 in the UK. One Direction would go on to achieve massive worldwide success on a scale that no British boy band has ever achieved, and even broke into one market that their predecessors failed to make it in: the United States. The Wanted also had a massive global hit with "Glad You Came" around the same time One Direction started to break through, but their hype was quickly extinguished by their rivals.

** It saw another decline during the early-to-mid 2010s when many adult cartoons started falling heavily under the AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark trope, but managed to get relaunched again (albeit at a very slow pace) with the successes of ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', and even ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty''.
