* ''Series/DoctorWho'' had two films starring Peter Cushing as 'Dr. Who' (his real name) which took place outside the series' continuity. "The Five Doctors", a 90-minute special to celebrate the 20th anniversary, was basically a Movie. A canon film was the 1996 Paul [=McGann=] [[MadeForTVMovie TV movie]], which was an attempt to get the show back on track after its original 1989 cancelling. The [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor 50th anniversary special]] is being billed as a movie, and showing in theaters along with the global simulcast.

** Reviews for The Motionless Picture were better than one might expect based on how commonly it's panned today (Ebert gave it 3/4 stars, and it's got a 45% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is ... well ... ''rotten'' by the stated standards, but significantly higher than a lot of arguably better movies). While it didn't meet its over-optimistic revenue expectations, it did at least make back its budget 2-3 times over, which was good enough for Paramount to green-light a (lower-budget) sequel after booting Roddenberry, who was perceived to be much of what went wrong with the first one.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BlueMountainState'' ended after 3 seasons. While the final episode did have a finished story arc, fans really wanted there to be a 4th season (mainly because people spend at least 4 years in an American college and fans wanted to see Alex Moran's senior year) to the point where they signed a petition. The result was a movie released on February 2, 2016, known as ''The Rise of Thadland''.

* ''SexAndTheCity'' took 4 years to get the movie out. Originally planned for the year after, but Kim Cattrall wanted more money for the work. (and who can blame her?) So it dragged on for a while until Kim got a deal.

* ''{{Tracker}}'' had a movie of sorts that was really a couple of episodes edited together and released as ''Alien Tracker''. The poor quality and fan refusal to buy it is probably what made Lion's Gate think [=DVDs=] wouldn't sell, and [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes no season set was ever released.]]
