Film Deaths[]

  • Elizabeth (1998) [Queen Elizabeth I]: Eventually dies off-screen (in 1603 to be exact) her death is mentioned in the on-screen text at the end.
  • The Man Who Cries (2000) [Lola]: Killed in an explosion when a German plane drops a bomb on the ship, while she's swimming in the ship's pool.
  • The Shipping News (2001) [Petal Bear]: Killed in a car accident when her car goes through a guardrail and into the water; her body is shown afterwards when the car is pulled out of the water (then again when Kevin Spacey has a nightmare of her coming back to life). She later appears as a ghost to Kevin Spacey (presumably a hallucination he is having).
  • Heaven (2002) [Philippa]: The final scene shows Cate and Giovanni Ribisi ascending straight up in a helicopter until they disappear from sight; although the scene appears symbolic, if interpreted literally, they both presumably die in the inevitable crash shortly after the movie ends.
  • Veronica Guerin (2003) [Veronica Guerin]: Repeatedly shot in the back by a hitman while sitting in her car at a red light.
  • The Aviator (2004) [Katharine Hepburn]: Dies off-screen of old age/natural causes, several years after the movie ends.
  • Babel (2006) [Susan Jones]: Presumably dies from her wound after being shot by Boubker Ait El Caid. She is last seen being carried to the hospital. (It's unconfirmed to whether she died or not, but it'll be listed in case).
  • I'm Not There (2007) [Jude]: Details needed.
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) [Daisy]: Dies of old age/natural causes in her hospital room. (At this point in the movie, she was made up to look much older than she actually was at the time.)
  • Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) [Irina Spalko]: Disintegrates by the powers of the crystal skulls, when they overload her brain with knowledge.
  • Hanna (2011) [Marissa]: Shot in the head off-screen by Saoirse Ronan, after Saoirse first shoots her in the chest with an arrow; the movie ends just as Saoirse fires.
  • Thor: Ragnarok (2017) [Hela Odinsdottir]: Killed when Surtur (voiced by Clancy Brown) slams his gigantic fiery sword down on top of her in battle, as Chris Hemsworth watches on. (Mythologically inaccurate: in neither the Prose or Poetic Edda, which Norse mythology comes from, Hela does not die and in fact survives Ragnarok.)
  • Don't Look Up (2021) [Brie Evantee]: Killed off-screen when a comet collides with the Earth; we last see her with Tyler Perry before the comet strikes.
  • Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (2022; animated) [Spazzatura]: Providing the voice a monkey, Cate dies off screen of old age; her death is revealed when Gregory Mann visits her grave.
