Ever since Janet Leigh was killed off before the halfway point of Psycho, there's been no guarantee that just because you're a huge star, you won't get wind up dead.

Sometimes it can happen towards the end of a movie to provide a third-act jolt (bye, Han), but some devilish filmmakers over the years have decided that's not good enough for them and so killed off one of their stars before they even got past the first act.

Here are nine such examples where you were misled into thinking a huge star would play a major role in a movie. Needless to say, there are spoilers ahead.

1. Scream â€" Drew Barrymore

Even though it's been parodied in the two decades since Scream's release, it does n't lessen the impact of the killer opening scene that proved Scream meant business.

Drew Barrymore was meant to play the lead role of Sidney Prescott before other commitments meant she couldn't. Instead, Sidney went to Neve Campbell and Barrymore took on the role of the unfortunate Casey Becker, whose lack of horror knowledge leads to her boyfriend's death and, eventually, her own at the hands of Ghostface.

2. Mission: Impossible â€" Kristin Scott Thomas and Emilio Estevez

Poor Ethan Hunt didn't have much luck with his first big-screen Impossible Mission Force team as they all died in the opening mission of Mission: Impossible.

That included Kristin Scott Thomas's Sarah Davies and Emilio Estevez's Jack Harmon, both of them already well-known from major roles in the likes of Four Weddings and a Funeral and The Breakfast Club.

Jon Voight's Jim P helps also "dies" â€" but he's revealed to have faked his death and been a mole all along.

3. Avengers: Infinity War â€" Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba

Sure, we knew that deaths were coming in Avengers: Infinity War, but we thought we'd at least get to enjoy the opening of the mega Marvel hit.

It didn't quite work out that way though, because before we'd even got to the title card, Thanos had made his mark by killing off a bunch of Asgardians including Idris Elba's Heimdall and â€" most importantly â€" Tom Hiddleston's Loki (or did he fake his death again?). No one was laughing about Thanos sitting on his throne anymore.

4. Life â€" Ryan Reynolds
