* 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.

** [[Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark]] has the mercenary team, who scatter into the undergrowth when the raptors ambush them in the field. Most were probably killed, but some apparently survived according to the script. You wouldn't know it from simply watching the film though.

* The original ''DawnOfTheDead1978'', apart from Peter and Francine themselves at the end of the film, leaves the fates of a number of survivor groups they encountered up to the imagination: what happened to the rest of the WGON News staff after Stephen and Francine stole the helicopter and left them? What happened to the rest of Peter and Roger's SWAT team and the people they had arrested after the two men deserted? The cops at the police dock who were planning to steal a boat and escape to an island? The convoy of rednecks and soldiers who the main characters flew over on their way to the mall? The surviving bikers who escaped at the end?

** In the theatrical version of the film, Golic is last seen still tied to the cot in the infirmary. [[spoiler:His death scene is included in the Assembly Cut]].
