    Technically, yes. But I'd love to see the skirmishes leading up to the assaults on Skynet's Los Angeles complex and the Cheyenne Mountain offensive. All with plasma rifles and under the cover of darkness, of course ;)

    And without John Connor being turned into a fucking Terminator at the last minute.

    Would have loved to see "The Event in Upstate New York" that was shouted out on the radio in Logan. Too bad they cut that moment from the script.

    Kind of obscure, but I've always wanted to write a prequel to 1960s BRIDES OF DRACULA. How exactly did the Baroness's son become a vampire, before she locked him away in that tower?

    The assault on Lenningrad where Snake Pliskin flew the Gulffire and the bank job with Harold i.e. the Brain in Escape from New York.

    "So, did Conan return the wayward daughter of King Osric to her home. And having no further concern, he and his companions sought adventure in the West. Many wars and feuds did Conan fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon his name and, in time, he became a king by his own hand. And this story shall also be told."

    But, when?!

    What happens to Richard Dreyfuss after he goes with the aliens in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

    What things were like in the perfect world Matrix from "The Matrix" that failed because humans could sense it was fake.

    What happens to all the people who went religious crazy in "The Mist" that were left in the grocery store once the military showed up. Actually I would like a entire movie about Thomas Jane's character after the movie as well. How does anyone ever come back from something like that.

    What happened to Jabba's hideout after everyone was killed? I hope he didn't have any more pet Rancor's who are left trapped and with no way of getting food or water.

    OP: The way Obi-Wan explained the old days in Star Wars, instead of how it was carried out in the prequels. Kenobi's brief description painted a mental picture of a history that seemed ancient and serious--like the stories that influenced George Lucas at that time. Biggest lost opportunity of the franchise was to not have the prequels capture the feeling of those few lines of dialogue.

    Not movies, but TV...

    B5's Telepath War.

    Hell, I'd settle for a novelization at this point. AFAIK, JMS has never gone into detail about the Telepath War, except for a couple of tidbits:

    Lyta Alexander and Lennier die.

    The conflict is apparently NOT between mundanes and telepaths, but is in fact the Psi Corps vs. an alliance of mundanes and 'good' (i.e. non-Psi Corps) telepaths.

    Comet TV recently aired 'It! The Terror from Beyond Space' and it would have been interesting to see the first expedition get attacked by the creature.
    The survivor tells of heading back to the ship when a sandstorm came up and the creature was there running beside the jeep, picking the astronauts off one by one.

    It's a TV show rather than a movie, but I wouldn't mind learning more about what exactly Rick was up to in all the years he was away from his family in Rick and Morty.

    BATTLE OF JAKku

    On screen we only see some strewn wreckage, but one was a freak'n Supper Star Destroyer lying on it's back!

    It does make an appearance in a video game with both Imperial and rebel capital ships exploding and falling out of the sky, but i want to watch the orbital fleet action.

    I'm still wondering how there could be anything LEFT of Jakku after a crash like that. I would have thought that a SSD would obliterate any planet it crashed into. (At the very least, why is there still a recognizable starship hulk left?)

    Could have been on a different Earth with a different version of his family. He has memories of holding baby morty, but in the current universe, he was never around during that time period. I'm pretty sure that he left his original Morty (perhaps Evil Morty) in a bad situation and replaced them with his current family, much like they did in the S1 "kronenberg" episode.

    Pretty much everything mentioned in the latest Transformers movie with the Transformers helping out in various world events over history including World War II. That sounds immensely cooler than what we got (and have gotten) in the movies.
