Chow Yun-Fat is the hero and dies in:

The Postman Fights Back (though he isn't the lead in that one)
Hong Kong 1941
A Better Tomorrow
Flaming Brothers
City On Fire
City War (well, maybe - it's hard to tell if he's actually dead)
All About Ah-Long
Peace Hotel
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The Corruptor

In general, Hong Kong films don't mind killing the leads.  It's all part of blood-soaked heroism.

A few other examples:
Above the Law (HK film, not Seagal) - EVERYBODY dies in this one
The Assassin - Everybody dies, almost
Expect the Unexpected - Everybody dies
Mad Detective
Exiled
Dog Bite Dog
Fearless

I could keep going for a long time... 

A few that haven't been mentioned from the US:

Night Of The Living Dead
Diary of the Dead
Blood, Bullets and a Fistful of Cash

Night of the Living Dead

Most everyone already mentioned every movie I could think of.  The only other title I could think of was EW, but that was a comic.

Oh!  I missed that one.  I forgot the character's name, but I knew he died.  Plus, I didn't notice that because it wasn't completely typed out as Night of the Living Dead.

There are a surprising number of historical and semi-historical films that feature dead heroes, as can be seen from the following list. I guess we just love to see that dead historical hero,

The Alamo
Amadeus
Bataan
Blaze
The Boy in Striped Pyjamas
Braveheart
Breaker Morant
Bridge Over the River Kwai
Charge of the Light Brigade
Custer of the West
Doctor Zhivago
The Eagle Has Landed
The Fighting SeaBees
Gladiator
Glory
Intolerance
Khartoum
La Bamba
Lady Jane
March or Die
Masada
The Messenger
Midway
Miracle at St. Anna's
The Mission
Nicholas and Alexandria
The Passion of the Christ
Spartacus
The 300 Spartans
Zulu Dawn

While non-historical films do not feature quite so many dead heroes, there are (again) a surprising number of films that feature dead heroes, as can be seen from this list.

The Champ
Death of a Gunfighter
Earthquake
Final Fantasy
The Gunfight
The Lady Killers
The Poseidon Adventure
The Shootist
The Sixth Sense
Village of the Damned
Wicker Man
World War III
Zarak

And neither of these lists are complete, as it has already been pointed out, there are a number of other films that feature dead heroes, and there are still some other films that have yet to be mentioned.

In a way...I consider KING KONG to be the hero of the film. I mean...he was minding his own biusiness,when Carl Denham decided to kidnap him and haul him out to NYC. All he wanted was to be with his girl.  Bluesad

Also, Karloff's Frankenstein Monster. I always felt sorry for him. His dad ,Dr.F,turned his back on him,he was persacuted and hounded,and his own bride didn't want nothing to do with his ugly self. Poor Frankie...all he wanted was a freind... Bluesad sniff.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
