Added DiffLines:

* The ''Film/ResidentEvil'' film series is very bad with this.
** Angela Ashford, the little girl who was at the center of the plot in ''Film/ResidentEvilApocalypse'', vanishes with nary a mention by the third film.
** Jill Valentine was also in the same boat as Angela until she reappeared in ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''. However, neither she, Leon, Becky or Ada were worth being spoken about again after the BolivianArmyEnding they were given in ''Film/ResidentEvilRetribution''.
** Chris, Claire and K-Mart were captured by Umbrella at the end of ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''. [[spoiler: Claire was later shown to have escaped in ''Film/ResidentEvilTheFinalChapter'', but she didn't bother to let anyone know what became of Chris and K-Mart.]]

* ''Film/TheMask''. Peggy Brandt, who seems to disappear from the main action towards the end. [[spoiler:In a deleted scene, her death is shown: Dorian Tyrell caught her trying to sneak off with her money, at which point he threw her into a newspaper machine. This being "The Mask," her death was cartoonish: an "extra edition" came out of the machine, printed in red ink. Peggy's visibly pained face was on the front page, along with the accompanying headline.]]

* Averted in ''{{Film/Titanic 1997}}''. The fate of a surprising number of minor characters and extras can be known by either [[AllThereInTheManual reading the script]] or paying very close attention to the background, or by reading a historical book if they're real people.
** A notable exception are the two Swedish brothers, Bjorn and Olaus Gunderson, who Jack and Fabrizio were rooming with.

* In ''Film/NottingHill'', William Thacker has a series of disastrous blind dates. However, the last one is a seemingly perfect match for William. After her scene, no mention is ever made of her again.
** William's subsequent conversation with Max and Bella strongly hints that though "She's perfect, perfect", William [[ItsNotYouItsMe is not sufficiently attracted to her to pursue the matter]].

* ''Ted'': Mila Kunis was unable to commit to ''Ted 2'' due to her pregnancy, so Lori was written out as her and John getting a divorce after two years of marriage. Considering her role in the first one and what she did for John and Ted in the end, it's hard to see how things went bad and her and John's relationship would not be stronger after that. In addition to the events in the sequel seeming to contrast the central theme of the first movie and make it pointless since John and Lori fell apart anyway, it almost seems like she was never meant to be sympathetic in the first place, but that's clearly not true. One can't help but wonder where she went after that too, even if John's not paying her alimony. She can't clearly be gone from their lives forever.
