* Horror Films remain central to Creator/{{Universal}}'s [[Franchise/UniversalHorror identity and history]]. The runaway success of these properties in TheThirties and TheForties made them a ton of money leading to an early example of SharedUniverse, with {{crossover}}s, spin-offs and endless sequels and reboots. These properties do tend to be revived from time to time such as the Creator/BrendanFraser ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy''.

* Creator/SonyPictures are very possessive of ''Franchise/SpiderMan'', a character they introduced and popularized on the big screen and which made them a lot of money. As such, its producers do their best to ensure that their license of the character and its IP from Marvel never escapes their grasp. They have made (as of 2019) seven theatrical live-action films and one SpinOff (''Film/{{Venom|2018}}'') from this property. The design of Spider-Man (namely the logo and titles for the first film) inspired the font of UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 establishing that Spider-Man and Sony have a corporate synergy. In the same year, they put out a UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 exclusive game, ''VideoGame/SpiderManPS4''. In addition they have brokered a deal with the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' that provided them a major share of profits and allowed them to keep hold of the license. That deal seemingly came to an end in August 2019 when Disney wanted a larger share of financing and thus profit, which might mean Sony will take Spider-Man out of the MCU.
