Daily Doux: 10 Films Sean Bean Survives

Warning: There be spoilers ahead.

National Treasure

Nic Cage steals the Declaration of Independence and Sean Bean lives to see the end credits. 


Bean plays an airline pilot who not only survives, but also doesn’t turn out to be the bad guy.


As Odysseus, builder of wooden horses, Bean survives the siege of Troy, but has a hell of a time getting home.

Jupiter Ascending

Bean plays a bee in human form (no, seriously) who, against all the odds, doesn’t die. 

Black Beauty

Bean plays the original owner of the famous horse who… sells the horse at the beginning of film and goes on with his life. 

Silent Hill

Come on, this is a horror film, Bean has to die in this, right? Nope, he survives. 

Silent Hill: Revelation 

He even survives the sequel as well. Bean 2. Silent Hill films 0. 

The Martian

Matt Damon may be the one who is constantly fighting for his very survival, but Sean Bean is the one you keep expecting to die. Even during the final montage you expect him to keel over and have a heart attack. He does not. 


Bean plays a merc who just sort of vanishes halfway through the film. But he is alive when we last see him. 

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Bean plays Zeus, king of the gods, and he who cannot keep it in his pants. He survives the movie, but skipped on the sequel.
