Las siguientes muertes desgarradoras de películas son difíciles de atravesar y aún más difíciles de olvidar. Ya sea que tengan lugar en una película clásica para niños, una película de superhéroes de gran presupuesto o un romance condenado, tirarán de tus corazones y te harán alcanzar tus pañuelos.

2Tony Stark Vengadores Juego Final
Era Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, quien lanzó todo el universo cinematográfico de Marvel, por lo que es apropiado que el final de su historia haya sido épico. En Fin del juego Tony es reacio a tratar de cambiar el pasado, por temor a perder a su hija, Morgan (Lexi Rabe), pero finalmente cede y se une al equipo en su misión de retroceder en el tiempo y deshacer el "chasquido" que acabó con la mitad de la población mundial.

La película termina con todas las personas que tocó llorando a Iron Man, y un mensaje holográfico conmovedor del propio padrino del MCU. Te amo 3000 también, amigo.

4 4Beth March Pequeña mujer
Esta muerte ficticia es un rito de paso tan universal que se convirtió en una broma sobre Amigos.

Forrest le rinde homenaje al convertirse en capitán de un barco camaronero y darle a su compañía un nombre que luego sería llevado por una cadena de restaurantes familiares de novedad de rango medio, que es un poco hortera cuando recuerdas el origen de la misma.
9 9Hillary Whitney Playas
Es un clásico llorón por una razón. Playas narra la amistad de C.C. Bloom (Bette Midler) y Hillary Whitney (Barbara Hershey), dos mujeres con fortalezas muy diferentes y sueños muy diferentes que se separan y vuelven a verse varias veces a lo largo de sus vidas. Lamentablemente, Hillary se interrumpe cuando le diagnostican un problema cardíaco grave y no puede recibir un trasplante a tiempo.

11Marley Marley y yo
Si estás viendo una película de perros, generalmente puedes suponer que terminará en la muerte del perro. (¡E incluso si no es así, es mejor prepararse para lo peor!) Esto no fue una sorpresa para los lectores de las memorias exitosas en las que se basa esta película en particular, pero es aún peor verlo todo en pantalla. Al menos el laboratorio amarillo que se porta mal en la película vive una vida larga y plena y es amado por su familia humana. En cualquier caso, la escena en la que Marley finalmente se duerme es al menos un asunto de tres tejidos.
Logan es diferente a cualquier otra película de X-Men. Hugh Jackman aparece como Wolverine por última vez en la franquicia, y esta brutal y sombría despedida del personaje no tira golpes. En esta película de línea de tiempo alternativa, los fanáticos también pierden Patrick Stewart's Charles Xavier, pero la mayoría de las lágrimas están reservadas para Logan, cuyos poderes curativos sobrehumanos se han ralentizado.

Son las maquinaciones de su villano hermano, Scar (Jeremy Irons), que conducen a Mufasa's (James Earl Jones) final prematuro, pero es Simba (Jonathan Taylor Thomas y Matthew Broderick) quien lleva la culpa, hasta que regrese a Pride Rock para derrocar el desolado imperio de Scar. La estampida por sí sola es suficiente para asustar a los jóvenes espectadores, pero la visión de Simba tratando de despertar el cuerpo sin vida de su padre es difícil de olvidar para cualquiera.
15Artax, La historia interminable
Esta película de fantasía orientada a los niños de 1984 trata algunos temas bastante adultos, especialmente en la escena donde el joven héroe Atreyu (Noah Hathaway) pierde a su fiel compañero, su caballo Artax, en los Pantanos de la Tristeza.

There are many casualties in the Battle of Hogwarts and the events that lead up to it, but the loss of Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) trusty owl, Hedwig, is a tough one. She's completely innocent—a piece of collateral damage, really—and doesn't deserve to be hit by the killing curse while the Order of the Phoenix attempts to whisk Harry from his aunt and uncle's house to safety. The poor kid has already mourned so many people close to him, and Hedwig is just salt in the wound.
20Leslie Burke, The Bridge to Terabithia

21Augustus Waters, The Fault in Our Stars
When Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) meet in a cancer patient support group, he's healthier than she is.

23Satine, Moulin Rouge!
"The woman I loved is dead," Christian (Ewan McGregor) tells the audience in the opening of Moulin Rouge! So the ending of Baz Luhrmann's take on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth doesn't come as a surprise, nor does the courtesan-turned-actress' tuberculosis diagnosis. (If a character in a period piece coughs blood into a handkerchief, you know that's what you're dealing with.)

25Spock, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
This 1982 sequel ends with Spock (Leonard Nimoy) entering a radiation-tainted engine room to save his ship and all of his crewmates from being blown up into nothing. To make matters worse, Kirk (William Shatner) watches Spock go, separated from him by just a sheet of glass. "I have been and always shall be your friend," Spock says, before reminding Kirk to "live long and prosper.

27Han Solo, Star Wars: El despertar de la fuerza

But instead of coming home, Kylo Ren runs his father through with his lightsaber in the hopes of snuffing out the pull he feels back to the light. And Chewie (Peter Mayhew) has to see it all go down!
28Rue, Los juegos del hambre
As it's all about a televised every-man-for-himself cage match and a long-simmering rebellion, Los juegos del hambre trilogy is heavy on the death scenes (and offscreen demises as well). The death of Rue (Amandla Stenberg), however, stands out. One of the youngest tributes in the first movie's Games, Rue becomes an ally to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) But they can't stay alive together for long, and Rue is killed by a spear meant for Katniss. The way in which Katniss reacts to her death—preparing her body with flowers and saluting the cameras—goes against the spirit of the event and ignites another uprising.
29Bing Bong, Inside Out
Humans are bundles of conflicting emotions. Pixar's Inside Out is about how challenging it can be for children to accept that that's true. Most of the film takes place inside Riley's (Kaitlyn Dias) head, where different feelings battle for dominance and then learn to work together. In the place where Riley keeps her memories, Joy (Amy Poehler) meets and talks with Bing Bong (Richard Kind), Riley's imaginary friend. For Joy to escape the "Memory Dump," Bing Bong determines, he has to allow Riley to forget him, grow up, and use other mechanisms to work through her emotions. So he sacrifices himself to the past, adding to the bittersweetness of the movie.
30Maggie Fitzgerald, Million Dollar Baby

Against the advice of many, Frankie does as she requests, telling her as she goes that his nickname for her—"mo cuishle"—means "my darling, my blood" in Irish.
31Guido Orefice, Life Is Beautiful
Before Jojo Rabbit, there was Life Is Beautiful. While the former features bumbling officers and an imaginary, over-the-top Hitler, the latter finds its comedy in the performance of Roberto Benigni, who plays an Italian Jewish man who turns surviving a concentration camp into a game for his young son. His efforts are rewarded when the boy is rescued by Allied soldiers, but Guido (Benigni) will never know it. He's executed by the Nazis with freedom just within reach.
32Andrew Beckett, Philadelphia
In the early '90s, it wasn't common to see the experience of living with AIDS portrayed on screen. So it was massively significant when Tom Hanks starred in Philadelphia as Andrew Beckett, a lawyer who sues his firm for wrongful termination. He and his representation, the initially hesitant and homophobic Joe Miller (Denzel Washington), prove that Andrew was discriminated against for his status and his sexuality. But Joe succumbs not long after the court rules in his favor, after bidding farewell to his family, Joe, and his partner, Miguel (Antonio Banderas)
33Maude, Harold & Maude
Everyone seems opposed to the romantic love that develops between 18-year-old Harold (Bud Cort) and 79-year-old Maude (Ruth Gordon), but that doesn't stop them. The death-obsessed teen is taken with the older woman's lust for life, leading him to examine why it is that he stages his own demise for fun. It's unexpected then, when Maude reveals to Harold on her 80th birthday that she's purposely taken an overdose of sleeping pills, having no intention of getting any older. She put an expiration date on her life and holds herself to it, and there's nothing Harold can do but remember her.
34Sam Wheat, Fantasma
There wouldn't be any movie if Patrick Swayze's Sam Wheat didn't die in the first act of Ghost, but knowing it's coming doesn't help. Fortunately, it's not the end of the love story between him and his girlfriend, Molly (Demi Moore), as Sam sticks around to protect her and take care of some unfinished business. The twist of the knife is that Sam wasn't the victim of a random mugging but of a targeted attack by his best friend, Carl (Tony Goldwyn), who suspected that Sam was onto his illegal activities at the bank where they worked together. At least Carl gets his, and Sam and Molly get some real closure.
35Ricky Baker, Chavales en el barrio
Ricky Baker (Morris Chestnut) is a high school quarterback with a promising future. A college football scholarship will get him out of Crenshaw, where gang disputes are heating up. Pero John Singleton's acclaimed drama isn't a fairy tale, just a realistic portrait of life in South Central L.A. in the '90s. So it's a future Ricky never sees: He's shot by a gang that's rival to his brother's and dies without knowing that he scored high enough on the SATs to qualify for financial aid.
36Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie, Steel Magnolias
This tale of the bond that exists among several generations of Southern women is packed with quotable moments ("You know I love you more than my luggage"), but it's not all laughter and sunshine. Julia Roberts plays Shelby, a young woman with type 1 diabetes who is determined not to let her condition prevent her from being a mother. She never does fully recover from giving birth to her son, despite the kidney she gets from her devoted mother (Sally Field) But she dies having experienced something she dearly wanted, and her friends can't begrudge her that.
37Brooks Hatlen, Cadena perpetua
Hope is the key theme of The Shawshank Redemption—another Stephen King adaptation set in a prison. Unfortunately, hope doesn't sustain all the characters as it does Andy (Tim Robbins) and Red (Morgan Freeman) Brooks Hatlen (James Whitmore), the oldest inmate and prison librarian, finds it impossible to cope in the real world after he's finally released. He hangs himself after sending a letter to his friends back at Shawshank, describing the overwhelming fear he felt living outside.
38Stanley Uris, It Chapter Two
The sequel to 2017's Eso (hi again, Stephen King!) finds the now adult members of the Losers Club returning to Derry, Maine to try to kill It for good. Unfortunately, not all of them make it there. Part of the curse on Derry is that the ones who left forgot their childhoods almost entirely, including their fight against Pennywise. When Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) calls Stan (Andy Bean) to ask him to return, Stan's memories come flooding back and he decides that he can't endure another showdown. Leaving his wife downstairs planning their next vacation, he calmly draws a bath and, in his final words to his friends, "takes (himself) off the board."
39Robbie Turner and Cecilia Tallis, Expiación
The romance between the high-born Cecilia (Keira Knightley) and her housekeeper's son, Robbie (James McAvoy), is doomed by a lie and by World War II. Spurred on by both her wild imagination and her own crush on Robbie, 13-year-old Briony (Saiorse Ronan) comes to believe that Robbie raped her sister and their cousin, unable to process that one encounter she witnessed was consensual and that the other was a case of mistaken identity. Briony proves to be an unreliable narrator in the film, too. A scene where she apologizes to Robbie and Cecilia years later is her fiction; Robbie dies before Dunkirk is evacuated, and Cecilia perishes during the Blitz.
40Cleo Sims, Frankie Sutton, and T.T. Williams, Set It Off
In this bank robbery thriller, four friends tired of the hand life has dealt them decide to steal a better one. But with the police closing in, their glory days can't last forever.

41Fantine, Les Misérables
Life is no walk in the park for this tragic heroine of Victor Hugo's.

She sells everything she can to stay alive and provide for her child: her teeth, her hair, and finally, her body. Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is able to give her the comfort of knowing that her daughter will be taken care of before she goes, and the audience gets Hathaway's crushing rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream."
42Silas Trip, Glory
This Civil War film portrays the experience of black Union soldiers, who risked their lives without being sure whether or not the triumph of the North would even benefit them. Among the original characters created for the film is Silas Trip (Denzel Washington), a former slave who is bitterly realistic about what might await him after the end of the war. Still, he fights bravely, carrying the Union flag into battle at Ford Wagner, and he's shot dead not long after his Colonel, Robert Shaw (Matthew Broderick).
43Billy Flynn, The Champ
This boxing melodrama aims shamelessly for the heart, focusing on the relationship between washed-up boxer Billy (Jon Voight) and his son, T.J. (Ricky Schroder), who calls him "Champ." Despite being warned not to get back in the ring, Billy does it anyway to prove his worth to his kid. He collapses after he defeats his opponent, living just long enough to see T.J. una vez más. If you can watch little Ricky Schroder tearfully imploring his dad to "wake up now" without shedding a tear, you're stronger than the rest of us.
44Everyone, Rogue One: Una historia de Star Wars
You don't have to be a math genius to work the numbers on Rogue One. An immediate prequel to A New Hope featuring characters who aren't present in the original trilogy?

As Rufio dies in Peter's arms, he tells Peter he wishes that he had had a dad like him.
48The Iron Giant, The Iron Giant
Kind of like a boy-and-his-dog story—if the dog were actually a 50-foot robot—The Iron Giant has a lot to say about humans' capacity for violence and fear of the unknown. Though he was most likely intended to be a weapon, the Iron Giant (Vin Diesel) found by nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes (Eli Marienthal) is gentle, protective, and curious. Their friendship leads the Giant to shoot himself up into the sky to intercept a military missile, completely destroying himself but saving Hogarth and his town. The Iron Giant does have a happy ending to offer, though: The Giant can be seen restoring himself in the final scene, and it can only be assumed that he'll end up back with his buddy.
49Radio Raheem, Do the Right Thing
It's the death of Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn) that takes a match to the tension that simmers beneath the unbearably hot Brooklyn summer of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing. Named for the boombox he carries, Radio Raheem is killed by police after a fight breaks out in Sal's, the Italian-American pizza shop where Lee's Mookie works and frequently clashes with the owner's racist son (John Turturro) The unjust murder inspires Mookie to throw a trash can through the window of the pizzeria, leading to the full-scale uprising that has been building throughout the film.

In the end, he makes one final decision for himself. He tells Diana that he loves her and leaves her with his watch, then takes off in a plane loaded with a deadly poison that would cause countless casualties. Diana, who is immortal, remembers him forever. (Somehow he's back in action in the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, though the "how" hasn't been revealed just yet.)
