26 Great Movie Opening Sequence

Interesting article by ‘This is not advertising‘. We noticed that after the commercial “EF Live the Language” by Gustav Johansson (one spot of series below) a lot of motion using title and fonts in opening.

This is not advertising says: “first impressions are important, right? Well, the same goes for film. The opening title sequence of a film is that film’s opportunity to make a good first impression on you, the viewer. A well-crafted title sequence introduces the audience to the tone and theme of the film as well as the cast and crew.

This list is for your enjoyment and inspiration. I have chosen some of our favorite selections from all eras and genres.”

Our favourite openings are:

SEVEN:

LORD OF WAR:

PANIC ROOM:

DELICATESSEN:
