Briefly, extra scenes include:
- The traditional extra scene that hints at what might be involved in the next movie of a series.
- Bloopers, interviews, etc.
- Photos from the movie or real life events.
- Sound effects outside of the music.
- On screen text that doesn’t relate to the credits.
- Simply put: an extra is anything that isn’t just the standard rolling credits.
How does RunPee’s ‘Anything Extra’ end scene feature work?
There are two levels of information RunPee provides. We provide the “basic” yes or no information about Anything Extra in a movie without needing a Peecoin. You can view that here on Runpee.com/anything-extra, or in the RunPee app on the Movie Info Screen for the film in question. This ‘entry-level’ part simply tells you if there is or isn’t anything more to see after the credits begin. But that’s really only the start of the info you need to decide if you should skip the Extra, wait around, or just make a speedy bathroom dash in the hopes you can still catch the Extra scene(s). If you want more than a simple yes/no, then open the Peetimes for that film and take a closer look.
There’s a whole lot more than a simple “yes/no” when a movie has bonus scenes, and RunPee has ALL the important deets
If there are scenes during and/or after the credits and you want the specific details (what the scenes are like, how long they last, if we recommend waiting to watch them, and how far into the credits the extra bits are), you can only access that information in the app by going to the Peetimes Screen (which uses a Peecoin).

Great! But what counts as an extra scene?
This is a question that’s perplexed us for years. Most of the time it’s very clear if there is, or isn’t, an extra scene. But there’s a lot of middle ground, with people wondering, “Did that count as something extra? What about this little thing?”
After years of debating, this is what we use as a guideline for deciding if a movie has anything extra: if there is anything at all other than the standard rolling credits and music, then that counts as Something Extra, with the notable exception of what we call Title Credits.
Title Credits are those “fancy” credits that sometimes run for about the first two minutes after a sci-fi, fantasy, animated, or superhero movie. Those don’t count as an extra, since they don’t advance the plot — usually. If the Title Credits deliver something additional to the story then we might count that as an extra.
Bonus scenes before the credits are not mentioned, since we assume you are still in your seat.
So…the short answer:
If there’s so much as a “Boo!” during, or at the end of the credits, then we count that as an extra. Our fans let us know if we missed anything at all, even if it’s just a dedication to someone in the cast or crew.
Here’s the most important part you need to know:
We describe the Extras in detail — without spoiling anything — and tell you if they’re worth waiting for. Some people use the RunPee app just for our Extras feature!
We see movies on opening night and there have been occasions that there wasn’t anything extra in our viewing, but later viewings did have extras, and in a few cases there have been extras, but only for the opening night premiers. (I think Hollywood is just messing with us sometimes.)
