* Deliberately invoked with The Cremaster Cycle, a set of five art films by Matthew Barney. The cycle totals nearly 7 hours of viewing time, is not available on DVD, and is completely incomprehensible unless you've read either the creator's website or the published statement of purpose. Various books have been published to act as companion supplements.

** The ''Film/MarvelOneShots'' also serve a similar function. For instance, ''[[Film/MarvelOneShots The Consultant]]'' shows what happened to the Abomination after ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', and reveals [[spoiler: that he was initially picked as a potential member of the Avengers before the Hulk joined up]]. ''All Hail the King'' reveals there is a real Mandarin, something that isn't stated in ''Film/IronMan3''.

** ''VideoGame/TRONEvolution'' explains most of this as well, but is much more vague and less sympathetic towards Clu. For now, it appears that the comic is canon. ''TronUprising'' adds a lot more detail to the time period between the coup and the second film. And even on the first film, the {{Novelization}} has a truckload of detail about the Program world that couldn't make it onto the screen. That ''isn't'' counting the [[CanonDiscontinuity discredited game and comic book]] that the fandom will also use as resources.

* ''Film/{{Quintet}}'' centers around a fictional board game, but the film itself doesn't really describe the rules in detail. In its theatrical release, the audience received a pamphlet with a detailed explanation of the game.

* ''Film/DonnieDarko'' itself. One of the reasons it has become a cult LoveItOrHateIt film is that it is not self-contained at all. Nothing about the Manipulated Dead or Tangent Universe is ever explicitly (or implicitly!) stated, requiring you to read the script-book or check out the director's commentary at length to have any hope of getting the plot.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'':
** The name of the planet most of the movie is set in is Lythion, but you'd only know that by reading the original comics or a summary of the movie (in-movie it's only known as planet 16).
** Some of the background characters do have proper names, but you'd need to read a character sheet to know them. Some of these characters (notably Captain Sun) had larger roles in the comics, but in the movie most of what they did of importance in the comics is distributed between Durand Durand and Dildano.

* A classic example: If you're mystified by movie ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'', try the ArthurCClarke novel of the same name. It even has a nifty ''Franchise/{{Stargate|Verse}}''.
