    I guess Obi-Wan's death in Star Wars was a shock.

    Another one is in the movie Final Destination. I don't know the character's name or the actress that played her but I think she was the girl friend of the guy who was the main character's rival. In the movie everyone's death but hers showed what minor things happen to them before they died. Her's was sudden. One moment she was talking and the next, hit by a bus.

    That black guy in the movie Night Of The Living Dead.

    He was the main hero through the whole movie, then in the final minutes of the movie....bang.

    One movie that REALLY shocked me was the movie Boy's Don't Cry. Hilary Swank played the main character, and her death was completely shocking.

    Wow, I wonder if this whole thread should be a spoiler.......

    I was saddend to hear of his passing plus learing that he did not recover from his injuries that permanently sidelined him from the show...

    The reason WHY I put spoiler tags on Bridge To Terabitha?

    "The Well Manicured Man" in the TV series The X Files met his sudden death in the one and only X Files movie (1998).

    The elderly black dude in The Shining. I didn't understand why all of that character development and trekking across the country only to eat it as soon as he got into the hotel.

    At the time of its release in 1982, the death of Mr. Spock in the movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" was a big deal, even though the ending left it open that he'd be resurrected. And he was in the next release, "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock." On the special edition DVD of Star Trek II, the original ending would have been a final end to Mr. Spock. However when the movie was sent out to a test audience before general release, the people left the theater in such a gloomy state that the ending was extended to include the shot of Spock's coffin on the Genesis planet and his voice closing the movie with the familiar "space the final frontier...." prose.

    And while not surprising, several years later on "Star Trek Generations" the producers killed off Captain Kirk. And Data died in the last Star Trek NG movie, "Nemesis".

    I forgot about Star Trek 3, the death of David Marcus was kind of unexpected compared to rumored demise of Mr. Spock in Star Trek 2 and the previewed destruction of the Enterprise in Star Trek 3.

    The "Darren Stephens" character in BEWITCHED didn't die. Dick York left the series for health reasons and his role was taken over by Dick Sargent.

    THE DIRTY DOZEN - all except the Charles Bronson character, Major Reisman (Lee Marvin), and the warrant officer.

    TALE OF TWO CITIES - Sidney Carton went to the guillotine in place of Charles Darnay.

    JAWS - "Quint" gets eaten. In the book, "Hooper" (Richard Dreyfuss character) is also killed by the shark.

    That one blew me away. At first I was disappointed, but after a while the realization sunk in that the plot twist made for a much more impact-ful film.
    Don't be mean,
    try to help.

    In the deleted scenes of "L.A." Peterson did live somehow and is seen at the end of the film.

    York did not leave the series at first....
    Injuries from a side movie role he was doing took a toll on his ability to keep up playing the role on TV. He eventually bowed out in 1969.....

    As the line Will Ferrell said in the movie version.........THERE WERE TWO DARRINS AND NOBODY NOTICED!!!!!

    Frank Sinatra's character Ryan in "Von Ryan's Express." That was devastating.

    Well drat. I can't remember the movie name or actor's names. The movie was about a pair of relationships. A single makeup artist with a little girl meets up with a single undertaker with a little boy. At some point the boy goes to find something the girl lost and runs into a bee's nest. The boy is "allergic to everything".

    At least that's the way I remember it. I might be confusing two movies.

    Yep that is My Girl - I used to love that movie.

    Another one for me was A Walk to Remember when the girl dies from cancer. Obviously, by the time she died you knew it was coming, but when I was shocked with the twist she had incurable cancer. (It's the movie with Mandy Moore & Shane West)
