* The look [[SilkHidingSteel Sansa Stark]] often manages to give [[TheCaligula Joffrey Baratheon]] in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. She does it after [[spoiler:having to watch her father's decapitated head on a spike, and when Joffrey acts as her "father" giving her away at her wedding to Tyrion]].

Added DiffLines:

** Tyrion gives a fantastic one while threatening Joffrey in "Second Sons" and another to Tywin and the entire DeadlyDecadentCourt in "The Laws of Gods and Men."
** Dany keeps an impassive expression throughout Master Kraznys' string of insults because she's pretending not to speak his language, but the last time he calls her a bitch, she gives him one of these when he's not looking. Kraznys' horrible flame-y death ensues shortly after.

Added DiffLines:

** Zod's actor, Creator/MichaelShannon, is actually well-known for doing good Kubrick stares appropriately so, considering he's normally typecast as crazed and / or violent types.

* Gary Oldman taught Conan O'Brian how to do something like this during an interview near the end of Conan's run on Series/TheTonightShow (Oldman also related a story how he used it to scare off a paparazzi reporter). Seeing the normally upbeat Conan do this was unnerving.

** He also does this when trying to solve a crime in "The Sign of Three". Probably not at the best time though; [[spoiler:he does it in the middle of his best man speech at John's wedding.]]

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', as his posture is often slightly hunched over, is practically ''built'' to give these stares. [[spoiler:Perhaps this is most noticeable when he's sitting in the holding cell, even more so when he joins in the clapping for Gordon's promotion.]] As it happened, GaryOldman told Creator/HeathLedger after this was shot that his performance was reminding him of Alex in ''Film/AClockworkOrange''; Ledger admitted he had just been watching that film in his trailer.

* Quite a few of the talking heads of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' had this as their "angry" animation.
** In [=FO2=], the Kubrick Stare ratchets up in increments as you [[BerserkButton pushed their buttons]]. In particular contrast with President Lynne's "superior civilization" poise, which would fade until her lips were locked in a ''snarl''.
* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow'', Soma Cruz's character image get this expression when he's influenced by Dracula, but not the rest of the time.
