Here are the Best Opening Credits/Title Sequences in Hollywood Movies in no particular order.
Lord of War is about a illegal arms dealer and the opening credits are about the “Journey of the Bullet”. A Bullet is shown being produced, transported and finally hitting the target – a little kid.
The opening credits of the first James Bond movie Dr. No had the iconic gun barrel scene and the theme music but at the end of it weirdly there is a song Three Blind Mice which just doesn’t gel with the opening theme. The second James Bond movie From Russia With Love did not have the now customary song. Its the third James Bond movie which has the opening gun barrel scene followed by a introductory action scene and then the opening credits with a song.
The movie begins with Mark being dumped by his girlfriend. The Social Network name is then displayed across the light blue background of Facebook and the rest of the opening credits are displayed as Mark runs back to his dorm alone. The slow haunting background score adds to the mood.
The opening credits of Snatch show all the characters with a character throwing/laying something and the other catching/picking it and so on.
The opening credits feature a Nine Inch Nails song Closer with dark creepy visuals and negatives and notes being written in a book and things being highlighted from a book.
The opening credits begin with workers in Bombay carrying the poster of the movie Bombay Talkie and the rest of the credits are shown using hand painted posters across Bombay.
The opening credits of Mission Impossible have scenes from the movie and feature the iconic theme music.
The opening credits of To Kill A Mockingbird have the little girl Scout playing with the Cigar Box.
And here is Stephen Frankfurt the creator of those credits describing how how he created them.Tags: Bombay Talkie Exclusive Goldfinger James Bond Lord of War Mission Impossible Se7en Snatch The Social Network To Kill A Mockingbird
