Film DeathsEdit

  • The Mission (1986) [Father Gabriel]: Shot dead by Portuguese soldiers while peacefully crossing the courtyard towards the mortally-wounded Robert De Niro. (Thanks to Michael, Nilescu, and Sheena)
  • Dead Ringers (1988) [Beverly Mantle/Elliot Mantle]: Playing a dual role as twin brothers, "Elliot" dies on a makeshift operating table when "Beverly" performs surgery on him to "separate" them; his body is shown afterwards when "Beverly" wakes up and discovers him. "Beverly" later commits suicide (off-screen) by taking a drug overdose; their bodies are shown afterwards lying together.
  • Kafka (1991) [Franz Kafka]: While Jeremy is still alive in the final scene, he's shown to be coughing up blood due to advanced tuberculosis, so it's quite strongly implied that his death is very near.
  • M. Butterfly (1993) [Rene Gallimard]: Commits suicide by slitting his throat with a mirror. (Thanks to Lucas)
  • Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) [Simon Gruber]: Killed in a helicopter explosion (along with Sam Phillips) after Bruce Willis shoots at an overhead power line, causing it to fall into the helicopter's rotating blades while Jeremy is trying to shoot Bruce. (There is also an alternate ending scene where Jeremy accidentally shoots himself, using a weapon which Bruce placed in front of him).
  • Lolita (1997) [Humbert Humbert]: Dies (off-screen) of a heart attack. (Thanks to Andrew and Tommy)
  • The Time Machine (2002) [Uber-Morlock]: Rapidly ages to death and turns into a skeleton as the time machine goes through time while Jeremy is trapped outside the protective sphere, whilst hanging onto Guy Pearce's neck. (Thanks to Kelly, Adam and Tommy)
  • Eragon (2006) [Brom]: Accidentally impaled with a spear when Robert Carlyle throws the spear at Ed Speleers and Jeremy intercepts it (he dies sometime after on the back of the dragon Saphira). His body is later seen being perfectly preserved. (Thanks to ND, Drew and Tommy)
