  • Miracle Mile (1988) [Ivan Peters]: Killed (off-screen) along with Lou Hancock, when the nuclear missiles strike the city, after they decide to spend their last moments together rather than try to escape. We last see them saying goodbye to their granddaughter (Mare Winningham) before driving off to have breakfast together. (It's debatable whether any of the characters survive the movie, but I'll only be listing the ones who make no attempt to escape and thus have no chance of survival.) (Thanks to Kyle)
