* Likewise, ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' used this when Bender's worried that a bureaucrat he insulted is standing behind him. Cue the Reveal Shot and that bureaucrat saying that she is in fact, [[BehindTheBlack in front of him, less than a foot away]].

* In ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' story "Pastoral", when Cammie [[FollowTheWhiteRabbit follows the kitten into the barn]], we get a shot of her fact, half in shadow, showing her shock; then we get her back in the house working on a new email that shows she's decided [[spoiler:to become a SecretKeeper for Roustabout's SecretIdentity]]. Only after her finishing it do we we get the RevealShot [[spoiler:that shows Roustabout and her cousin kissing]].

** "Think Fast, Father Ted". Jack crashes a car into two lorries. When Ted and Dougal inspect the car, the front (all we can see) looks okay, and Dougal hopes the car isn't damaged. Cue the RevealShot, and we see that the back of the car has been scrunched like an accordion.
** "Kicking Bishop Brennan Up the Arse". It's the end of a long FawltyTowersPlot, and Ted is performing the last bit of fast-talk he needs. It looks like Brennan is about to be fooled. Then comes the RevealShot, and we see that Ted is (without realizing it) standing next to an incriminating photo that has been blown up to the size of a house.

* A commercial for WNBC radio in the 1980's had people talking about Creator/HowardStern, and ended with Don Imus saying "Please don't listen to any of these people. Howard Stern is just as same as I am." - then the camera pulls back to show Imus wearing a straitjacket and standing in a padded room.

* ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'': The first panel shows a close-up of someone asking Beetle whether [[SexySecretary Ms. Buxley]] had walked past in a bikini. The next panel shows the larger scene with Beetle having stepped in his can of paint and a general mayhem around them with soldiers still staring transfixed and having crashed their cars and whatnot. [[DistractedByTheSexy Yes, she had.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' has Rocky teaching the chickens to fly. One shot has him getting all the chickens to run off of the roof of a coop. When it gets to Ginger's turn, she runs, jumps... and stays in the air, flapping her arms. Then she looks down, and it turns out she's standing on the pile of chickens who had gone before her.

* Used in ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'': The Brothers speak with agent Maury Sline to get a gig for the following night in a sauna. After closing the deal, we see that the entire ten-person band has been there the whole time.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNMVMNmrqJE Tomorrow Belongs To Me]], from ''Film/{{Cabaret}}''. Starts out as a nice song, and then you start to see the swastikas...
* In ''Film/AFishCalledWanda'', one scene begins with a shot of what looks like Archie standing against a building, beginning to deliver what sounds like a sincere apology to Otto. Then the camera flips upside down and pulls back, revealing that Otto is dangling Archie out of a window by his feet.



* The ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Fellowship of the Ring]]'' movie -- we open with a shot of a dark menacing tower in Mordor, apparently Barad-dûr, home of Sauron. Then the camera pulls back... and back... and back... until we are able to get a full view of the ''ungodly immense, dozens of times larger and infinitely more menacing'' tower that is the ''true'' Barad-dûr, revealing the initial tower we saw as one of the hundreds of (relatively) tiny lookout towers spaced around Barad-dûr's outer wall.
* Used in ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'': The Brothers speak with agent Maury Sline to get a gig for the following night in a sauna. After closing the deal, we see that the entire ten-person band has been there the whole time.
* The finale of ''Film/MysticPizza'' does this with a woman and her fiance, who were at odds throughout the movie. [[spoiler:The camera pans out to reveal her wearing a wedding dress, showing that she decided to go through with the wedding despite everything.]]

* The ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Fellowship Used in ''Film/ILoveYouPhillipMorris''. Early in the movie it is suggested that Steven (the protagonist) is heterosexual and happily married. In a scene he is shown passionately kissing his wife, and the camera cuts into a scene of Steven having sex, his sexual partner being off-screen. One can't help but to assume he is having sex with his wife, until the camera pans out revealing his sexual partner to be a ''man''... To top this off Steven narrates: "Oh, did I forget to mention I'm gay?"

of the Ring]]'' movie scene.
* ''Film/{{Innerspace}}'':
** The opening credits occur over weird, shifting, oddly coloured shots which suggest a bizarre, alien world, in keeping with the film's plot. Then, the camera pulls back... to reveal we've been watching ice cubes swirling around a glass of whiskey.
** When we first see Martin Short's doctor's office, it's a close-up of some palm trees. But then the camera zooms out to reveal it's simply a poster.

* This is how ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'' introduces us to [[BreakoutCharacter Captain Jack Sparrow]]. Standing proudly atop his ship's mast, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome hero music blaring...]] and then widens to reveal that not only is his "ship" a dinghy, it's almost totally sunk, hitting the bottom as he jumps onto the dock.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0 short movie]] ''Film/PowersOfTen'' (and imitators) is entirely based upon this trope.
* The opening scene from ''Film/SafetyLast'' makes it look like an execution is about to unfold. We see the hero behind bars, the gallows waiting in the back, his sobbing relatives and a minister comes to shake his hand. Cut to a shot from a wider angle which reveals the setting to be a train station and the occasion to be a TrainStationGoodbye.



** The opening scene of ''Film/ANewHope''. First the Princess' ship goes overhead, everything is normal. Then the Star Destroyer starts to slowly go overhead... and goes... and goes and you realize that the ship is HUGE. At this point, if you were first watching it in 1977 when it came out, you suddenly realized how awesome this movie was going to be. Differs from the others in that the Star Destroyer enters (and enters and enters!) as opposed to the camera zooming out. (Parodied, of course, in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''.)

* Used as a fakeout and then straight-up within one scene in the ''Series/{{Alias}}'' episode "Phase One", which ends with [[BigBad Sloane]] telling [[TheDragon Sark]] to 'check in on [their] new asset'. The sound of a ringing phone transitions to the next scene, where it is revealed Sark is calling...[[BlackBestFriend Francie]]! However, the camera then pans around to another angle to show the real Francie's corpse with a bullet wound in the forehead.



* ''Series/BandOfBrothers''. In "Crossroads", there's a flashback scene where Captain Winters apparently shoots a lone, unarmed, and surrendering soldier. Later in the episode we get more details; turns out he's opening fire on a whole company.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. "I Was Made to Love You" opens with Buffy pounding away at what appears to be a punching bag, but a wide shot reveals it's Xander in a huge padded sumo suit.
* In ''Series/{{Coupling}}'', Jeff is trapped in a photocopier (ItsALongStory), and in order that his colleagues shouldn't know that it was him trapped, refuses to come out until they've all gone home. He walks into work the next morning, secure in the knowledge that no-one knew he'd made a prat of himself the previous day. He sits down at his desk. And the camera pans up to reveal... 500 A4 photocopies of his head, pasted to the wall behind him.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E1ThePilot "The Pilot"]], [[TomboyishName Bill]] is flustered on stepping out of the TARDIS to realize she's no longer in a university basement, but a city in broad daylight, and the Doctor's clearly enjoying it -- then he steps aside so she can see the excellent view of the Sydney Opera House.

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Frasier reacts with horror to the news that the mysterious Eddie will be moving in to his apartment, along with with his Dad. Cut to Frasier and Martin watching TV -- and then we get our introduction to Eddie, himself.
* In the last episode of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' Season 6, the camera focuses on [[spoiler: Lyanna Stark's newborn]] son and then switches to [[spoiler: Jon Snow]], [[TheReveal revealing]] they're the same person.

From all the shots so far, it looks like the chasm is pretty wide, though the other ponies clear it easily. When Fluttershy finally gets enough courage to try, Twilight Sparkle says a DontLookDown right in the middle, which [[GravityIsAHarshMistress somehow]] seemingly causes Fluttershy's jump to terminate in the middle because she gets frightened.
