Movies where the main character dies.

Normally in movies, either the supporting character or not important character dies. But here are some movies I can think of where the lead does die:
Braveheart (1995)
From Hell (2001)
Titanic (1997)

Can anyone else think of more?

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

Another movie where Leonardo DiCaprio dies. Wasn't he the lead in The Departed and he got shot in that?

What, do you got your period?

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

Oh yeah he died (and was the lead) in that one too.

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

And also Romeo and Juliet too. Does American Sniper count? Because I know the movie ended with the Chris Kyle funeral thing and I felt like crying like a baby.

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

Emma was such a great character.

After Emma passes, Aurora says she had thought that death was going to come as a relief, but that she was wrong. That line by itself makes me choke up every time. MacLaine was excellent and deserved her Oscar.

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

In Titanic, Jack is actually the Secondary Co-lead not the Main Character…. The Main Character is actually ROSE. An example of a Lead Character dying would be if say Jennifer Lawrence's Winter Bone Character died since she was the Sole Lead…

Re: Movies where the main character dies.

Too many to name.

Leads have been dying in movies since the beginning of the art form.

When Lillian Gish, Donald Crisp and Richard Barthelmass, the three leads in Broken Blossoms, (1919) all died, the camera looked around, couldn't find anyone left alive to photograph and the film came to an end.

Actors drool over the idea of a death scene, and audiences love to see them croak.
