Story
Final Destination is a supernatural thriller, which is about a group of teenagers who cheat death by avoiding a plane crash when one of them, Alex Browning (portrayed by Devon Sawa) is going on a high school graduation trip to Paris with his fellow students. Before the Volée Air Flight 180's take-off, Alex has a premonition that the flight explodes in mid-air, killing everybody.

Alex then wakes up and assumes the premonition was just a dream but as events from his vision begin to repeat themselves in reality, Alex panics and attempts to stop the flight before take-off.

The resulting commotion leads to a handful of passengers being left behind, including Alex, a mysterious orphaned girl named Clear Rivers (Ali Larter), Alex's best friend Tod Waggner (Chad Donella), teacher Valerie Lewton (Kristen Cloke), Alex's rival Carter Horton (Kerr Smith), Carter's girlfriend, Terry Chaney (Amanda Detmer), and an ordinary student, Billy Hitchcock (Seann William Scott). After they are all forced off the plane, none of the passengers believe that Alex's vision will come true until the airliner takes off and explodes in mid-air killing everyone who was on board.

A month passes after the incidents of the airline disaster. Alex and Clear figure that Death's plan may have been flawed since they know that each of the passengers left behind were all supposed to die on the plane. Mysteriously, the survivors begin to die in many horrific ways and in the same order that they would have if they had stayed on the plane. Alex and Clear somehow must find a way to cheat Death once more before they all reach their final destination.
