‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ tops list of most deaths in films

2014 film labelled the most deadliest film ever

Guardians of the Galaxy has been labelled the most deadliest film, according to a new study.

A study – titled ‘Director’s Cut’ and conducted by price comparison website Go Compare – places the 2014 superhero movie at the top of a list of the most deaths in films.

The on-screen body count from Guardians of the Galaxy is estimated at 83,871, largely thanks to a single scene that sees 80,000 characters die.

2014’s Dracula Untold comes second with 5,687 deaths, followed by 2002’s The Sum Of All Fears with 2,922, The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King with 2,798 and 300: Rise of An Empire with 2,234.

It has also been found that the average number of deaths in movies has increased through the decades. In 1950, there was just one film with 50 or more deaths in it, while in 1990 there was 119.
