* One of the new ''Film/StarTrek'' movie posters has ChrisPine in [[http://img.trekmovie.com/images/st09/Kirk_CharacterPoster_72DPI.jpg this pose]], which unfortunately makes Captain Kirk look like a dead ringer for Series/{{Dexter}}.

* King Thranduil pulls off some really chilling ones in ''Film/TheHobbit'', especially fighting orcs. Lord Elrond and Lady Galadriel can really pull off just plain terrifying ones too.

** [[spoiler:Femto]]'s KubrickStare during [[spoiler:The Eclipse]] is terrifying, since although [[spoiler:he's raping Casca, Guts' love interest]] purely out of spite, he's also staring at Guts the entire time.

* Try to find a photo of Creator/JamesCagney where he's [[TypeCasting in character]] and ''isn't'' doing this. (No surprise that he was one of Kubrick's favorite actors). See Gary Oldman's Tonight Show appearance below for a description of the Cagney version of the KubrickStare.

* The ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series refers to this as well; in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', Bellatrix Lestrange's mugshot apparently shows her with a KubrickStare (judging by its description).

** Creator/ZacharyQuinto plays his KubrickStare to terrifying perfection as both Sylar and [[Film/StarTrek Spock]] have had KubrickStare moments, even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eA4N7F7h2Xs demonstrating it]] as to why he's often cast as the bad guy.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': When questioned by Admiral Hackett on how they got the krogan and salarians to cooperate (answer: [[spoiler:by sabatoging the genophage cure]]), Shepard's response of "careful diplomacy" is accompanied by a KubrickStare and PsychoticSmirk.

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'': [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]] delivers a positively ''withering'' one to Pierce at Logan's hideout, when she walks towards him and [[DecapitationPresentation tosses the head of one of his Reavers]] at his feet. The fact it's being delivered with aplomb by an ''eleven year old girl'' just makes it even ''more'' chilling.

* Taliesin Jaffe, playing Percy de Rolo on CriticalRole, has a great one he pulls out when things get serious. Just watch him in Episode 25, taking an aimed shot at the man who cost him his family.

* 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]].

** 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.
