Check out this video:

Now watch right before the movie ends, you see the passengers drop down the slide, but to the right you can see a guy dropping down from the nose of the aircraft and running to the firetruck. Is that the pilot? Is there a hatch there or something?

Yep, that's the pilot. I don't know if there is a hatch but I have seen Airliners with one of the Side windows in the cockpit open, he probably jumped from there.
