* ''Film/BreakerBreaker'' [[NoEnding ends suddenly]] right after the climactic showdown between ChuckNorris' JD and TheDragon Strode. Do you get to see what happened to the other townsfolk after the truckers' rampage destroyed Texas City? Nope. Do you see what became of Arlene and her son? Nope. Hell, you don't even get to see if Strode is dead or just unconscious. A brief scene suggested that BigBad Judge Josh was killed when one of the truckers crashed through his bedroom, but the scene is so badly shot, you can't even tell if the truck even hits Strode, and you don't get so much as a DeadHandShot as confirmation.

* In ''Film/DemolitionMan'', you never do find out what the three seashells are for.

* In ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart2'', as in [[Literature/TheHungerGames the book]], we never find out the fate of [[spoiler:Caesar Flickerman, who is last seen broadcasting Katniss' apparent death for the Capitol audiences, or Snow's personal assistant, Egeria, who gets dropped from the plot as soon as the rebels take hold of the Presidential Palace despite being possibly there the entire time]].

** The film's novelization has the children escape the ship [[spoiler: just before the bomb is teleported aboard.]]
* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'':
** You might remember that librarian ghost who gave just about everyone the willies. It's too bad nothing is said about what happened to her!
** Her story becomes a plot point in the 2009 video game.

* A minor antagonist in the first {{FilmSeries/Transformers}} movie named Barricade stops showing up during build-up to the finale and is never mentioned again for the rest of the film. The disappearance caused speculation about what happened to the character.[[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Barricade_(Movie)#Notes]] [[note]] Barricade finally showed up in ''TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' and was killed during the finale.[[/note]]

* In ''Film/BatmanForever'', both Two-Face and The Riddler learn Batman's SecretIdentity and swing by Wayne Manor to trash the place. The former ends up dead and the latter so mentally broken he's no threat of ever revealing it, so HappyEnding right? What about the entire ''team of henchmen'' who went along to help? Even ''if'' Riddler and Two-Face never told any of their henchmen the reason they were attacking Wayne Manor (which is already a stretch), it's incredibly unlikely they didn't figure it out once they got there.

* [[{{Irony}} Ironically]] enough, ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' had this with its titular musical (apparently called ''Twinkle Towne''), in the first film. You'd think with all the importance placed on its callbacks, we'd get some focus on the musical itself, like maybe showing Troy and Gabriella practicing songs or scenes from it, right? Well, you'd be wrong - after the performance of '' Breaking Free'' it's never brought up again, not even in the sequels.

* About 20 minutes before ''Film/MyFairLady'' ends Col. Pickering decides to search for poor little Eliza who went AWOL. He determinedly walks out of the library set - and is never seen or heard from again.

** The short "Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise" has the Stooges destroy the saws of a farmer. The farmer warns them that they will work for him until they pay for the broken saws. However, in the next scene, the Stooges are walking on a dirt road. We're LeftHanging as to what happened with the farmer - did the Stooges replace the saws or did they run out on him when he wasn't looking?

* TheGrimReaper is apparently still running amok in the "real" world at the end of ''Film/LastActionHero''. Since he declares that he's following a list, and doesn't touch people who aren't on it, he presumably doesn't make any real impact on the world - he only touches people who would have died anyway.

** In ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'', the end title theme says that there are 'seven James Bonds.' Actually, there are eight in the film - David Niven (Bond himself), Peter Sellers (Tremble, codenamed James Bond), Terence Cooper (Cooper, codenamed James Bond), Woody Allen (Jimmy Bond), Daliah Lavi (Lady James Bond), Joanna Pettet (Mata Bond, codenamed James Bond), Barbara Bouchet (Moneypenny, codenamed James Bond), and Ursula Andress (Vesper, codenamed James Bond). However, the scene that accompanies this song, with the 'seven James Bonds' in Heaven, is lacking Terence Cooper, who apparently somehow DIDN'T die in the casino explosion...? Or they may mean Lady James Bond, aka The Detainer; she was last seen before her attempted escape from a second-story bathroom window. Given the extended period of time between her entering the bathroom and the explosion, it can be assumed that she either fell to her death (the first floor IS rather tall), or that she was still trying to descend the drain-pipe during the explosion.

* ''Film/RedLights'' left many plot threads dangling. [[spoiler: Did Buckley call ''himself'' all those times with his powers and not know it? Was he responsible for the strange things going on at Silver's office, and were the apparently possessed people there stooges, or did he unconsciously influence them? Additionally, while Silver's supposed "thought transference" was explained, they never said anything about the "thought photographs" which he produced that Shackleton said had "no scientific explanation." Of course that could have been faked too- you don't see how though.]]

* ''Film/TheWarriors'': Who was that talking on the phone to Luther at certain points in the film? This person is never named or even ever heard speaking, and all the viewers learn is that whoever it is must be in on the conspiracy against the Warriors somehow ("We set, all right") and is someone Luther knows on a fairly personal basis ("Yeah, you take care of yourself"). Many fans have speculated that it must have been some representative of the New York [[TheMafia Mafia]] - a group that would naturally want to disrupt the alliance of all the street gangs and might have paid off Luther to make sure that didn't happen.

* For the first third of ''Film/Chef!'', Scarlett Johansson's character, Molly, seems to be the female lead, but when the action switches from California to Miami she vanishes from the movie. No affront to realism, just to our expectations. The cameos by Dustin Hoffman and Robert Downey Jnr do advance the plot (such as it is) but we expect Johansson's character to be developed.
* At the beginning of [[Film/SiebenZwerge 7 Zwerge - Der Wald ist nicht genug]], two kids report a fire to Speedy. He makes them promise to keep it going until he gets there because he hates it when he responds to a fire only to find that it already went out before he arrived. The kids agree, but before Speedy can get to the fire, he is recruited into the main plot, and the fire is never heard about again. One wonders how long they managed to keep it going.

''(he never does)'' [[note]] According to WordOfGod, the watermelon was part of a Banzai Institute project to combat hunger in Third World countries by air-dropping genetically modified fruits and vegetables designed to remain intact after being dropped from extremely high heights. They dropped the project because they realized that in order to remain intact, the ultra-durable fruit would have to be so tough that it would be inedible.[[/note]]
