The Princess Bride (1987) [Westley]: Is temporarily "mostly dead" after Chris Sarandon turns the torture device to full power. His body is shown afterwards when Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant discover him, and he is brought back to life after Billy Crystal prepares a miracle pill which Mandy and Andre force down Cary's throat. (Thanks to Gossamer)

Glory (1989) [Major Cabot Forbes]: Possibly killed (off-screen) while charging the Confederate fort; the scene ends with the soldiers running towards a cannon, which then fires. Cary's body is not shown among those being buried in a mass grave, so it's unconfirmed whether or not he survived the battle. (Thanks to Grey Ghost and Michel)

The Jungle Book (Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book) (1994) [Captain William Boone]: Drowned after being attacked by a giant python in the water. (Thanks to Gary and ND)

Twister (1996) [Dr. Jonas Miller]: Killed in an explosion when his vehicle is picked up by the tornado and then thrown to the ground. (Thanks to Gossamer and Caroline)

The Informant (1997) [Lieutenant David Ferris]: Killed in an explosion by a bomb planted on a motorcycle. (Thanks to Gary)

Kiss the Girls (1997) [Detective Nick Ruskin a.k.a. Casanova]: Shot in the head by Morgan Freeman (firing through a carton of milk to eliminate the muzzle flash) when Cary threatens to blow up the gas-filled house. (Thanks to Gary, Michael, and Gossamer)

Race Against Time (2000) [Burke]: Shot in the chest by Sarah Wynter after Cary  tries to shoot her, on top of falling through an elevator roof. (Thanks to Gary and ND)

Shadow of the Vampire (2000) [Fritz Arno Wagner]: Neck snapped by Willem Dafoe, after Cary shoots Willem repeatedly to no effect. (Thanks to ND)

The Cat's Meow (2001) [Thomas H. Ince]: Shot in the back of the head by Edward Herrmann, who had mistaken him for Eddie Izzard. (Thanks to Gary)

Comic Book Villains (2002) [Carter]: Shot repeatedly in the chest by Donal Logue while Cary is lying on his back on the ground; we hear their conversation and the gunshots over the opening scene, and the shooting itself is shown later on when the movie "catches up" to that point. (Thanks to Curtis)

The Riverman (2004) [Ted Bundy]: Executed (off-screen) in the electric chair; his death is mentioned in the voice-over narration. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
