As my Dad always said, “You only get one chance to make a first impression”.
Hollywood knows this, and badass title sequences have since become big bidness. They’ve evolved significantly from the title cards of old. Now works of art in their own right, they are even directed and produced by entirely different people than the film itself.
From the likes of the various babe-infused arty Bond incarnations, to the wicked dark David Fincher openers (like this one), a memorable title sequence can set the tone for the 90 minutes to come.
One such ultra-memorable sequence all the way from 1995 is that of Ghost in the Shell.
