The thread about opening-with-endings got me intrigued by this one and what examples people can think of. The main criteria is: time gap must be immediate or a few days/weeks minimum (not months or years), and could you in principal splice end and beginning together as one film?

The ones that come immediately to mind for me are:

Resident Evil: Retribution - I really like its rewind opening, and does pick up immediately from end of Afterlife (sort of).

Star Trek II and III

Alien II and III

Any other suggestions welcome

I watched the sequel to Cloudy with a chance of meatballs and the sequel actually takes place like 2 minutes after the 1st one.

Isn't that debateable? Because between "Beneath..." and "Escape from...", Cornelius, Zira and Dr Milo would not only have had to find Taylor's ship in the inland sea, but recover it, repair it, and understand how it worked prior to coming back in time in it. Although, this does fly in the face of the destruction of Earth in "Beneath..."

I dunno, a bit ambiguous that one.

I believe Insidious 2 follows immediately on from Insidious, though I've not seen 2 yet.

Regards

Evil Dead 2.

A lot of people mistakenly believe Ash went back to the cabin with another girl called Linda and played the incantation tape again. In actual fact, the first few minutes of the film are a condensed remake of The Evil Dead. The sequel part begins at the exact moment the original ends, with the unseen force hitting Ash and sending him flying through the woods.

As already mentioned, Back to the Future runs immediately into Part 2. Of course, as the part of Jennifer had been re-cast for the sequel, they were fores to re-shoot the last few minutes of the original film. The continuity is amazing for 5 years later!

Evil Dead 3 Army Of Darkness starts immediately after part 2 also iirc
