** 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''.

* 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 DisasterMovie genre was left for dead by 1980, but experienced a resurgence in 1996 with Creator/RolandEmmerich's ''Film/IndependenceDay''.
* The ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' series did the same for [[SlasherMovie slasher movies]] by hanging a massive lampshade over the genre's numerous clichés, while still employing them to scary effect. It took nearly a full decade for the resurgence to die back down, being done in by two things: a massive glut of uninspired, low-quality slashers that either couldn't emulate ''Scream''[='s=] cheeky postmodernism, or simply didn't even try to, and the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} Massacre making any what Creator/RogerEbert called "dead teenager" movies very uncomfortable by way of TooSoon.
* 3D movies have had this [[PopularityPolynomial a few times]] - the most recent in the 2000s, first with IMAX 3D, then animated flicks such as ''ThePolarExpress'', and culminating in 2009's ''Film/{{Avatar}}''.
* ''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}}''.
* There'd hardly been any SwordAndSandal epic movies since ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' had come out in 1963. Then along came a little film called ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' in 2000, and the genre became big again.
* R-rated comic book/superhero movies had declined after ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' underperformed at the box office, as well as studios believing that the R-rating was box office poison compared to the more economically viable PG-13. This sentiment was not helped by the fact that the few that did come out between 2009 and 2015 weren't big hits. But after a little film called ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' proved a critical and commercial success, there have been announcements from 20th Century Fox that their latest ComicBooks/{{Wolverine}} movie will be R-rated, as well as rumours that ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' will have an R-rated director's cut, suggesting that the R-rated comic book/superhero movie may be experiencing a resurgence.

** After a rather dormant period in the late 1990s, the genre got another major reboot in 1999 with the success of ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' The show revitalized the entire genre and was the TropeMaker for many game show elements in use today � AllOrNothing money ladders, {{Lifelines}}, dramatic sets and music, {{Commercial Break Cliffhanger}}s and of course, massive payoffs. This led to the WhoWantsToBeWhoWantsToBeAMillionaire trope.
