Film Deaths[]

  • The Trench (1999) [Pte. Rag Rookwood]: Killed in an explosion along with Michael Moreland, Ciarán McMenamin and several other soldiers when part of the trench is bombed. His body parts are later seen scattered all over the trench when Paul Nicholls discovers them after rushing over to their location, having heard the detonation.
  • Disco Pigs (2001) [Pig/Darren]: Suffocated by Elaine Cassidy. (Thanks to Shollum)
  • 28 Days Later (2002) [Jim]: Goes into cardiac arrest after first being shot in the chest by Christopher Eccleston, then suffering further injuries in a car crash; he is resuscitated in the theatrical release, but dies in the alternate ending included in the US DVD. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • Cold Mountain (2003) [Bardolph]: Shot in the back by Natalie Portman, after Jude Law tells Cillian to run.
  • Red Eye (2005): [Jackson Rippner] Shot in the chest by Brian Cox, he possibly dies as he glares at Rachel McAdams.
  • The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006) [Damien O'Donovan]: Executed by a firing squad. (Thanks to Catie)
  • Sunshine (2007) [Robert Capa]: Incinerated, along with Rose Byrne and Mark Strong, when the ship is engulfed by the sun in the process of re-igniting it. (Thanks to Vanda, Lizzie, Drew, Tommy, Tim, ND, and Joshua)
  • Inception (2010) [Robert Fischer Jr.]: In one dream world, he is shot to death by Marion Cotillard; in another, he falls to his death after being pushed from a tall building by Ellen Page. (He survives the movie in reality.) (Thanks to Tommy)
  • In Time (2011) [Timekeeper Raymond Leon]: Dies when his allotted time runs out, after he misses his chance to "recharge" during a confrontation with Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake. (Thanks to Tommy, Tim, Michelle, and Joshua)
  • Retreat (2011) [Martin]: Shot to death by Thandie Newton, as a mercy killing after he contracts the deadly virus. (Thanks to Tiffany and Tim)
  • In the Heart of the Sea (2015) [Matthew Joy]: Dies (off-screen) from an infection on a wound on his head. His death is confirmed when Brendan Gleeson tells Ben Whishaw that Cillian died on Henderson Island while Paul Anderson, Luca Tosi, and Nick Tabone (who were left behind with Cillian) were later rescued. (Historically inaccurate, the real Matthew Joy died in the lifeboat of the whale ship Essex after leaving Henderson Island.)
  • Anthropoid (2016) [Josef Gabcík]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the head rather than be taken prisoner by the Nazis.
  • Free Fire (2016) [Chris]: Accidentally shot in the chest by Brie Larson, on top of being shot multiple times. He dies shortly after talking to Brie.
