Casino Royale (2006)
In an effort to re-invent the franchise the infamous James Bond title sequence was overhauled. The result was a visually pleasing intro that still pays its respects to the original.

A lot of Tim Burton’s films sport fantastic title sequences but Sweeney Todd’s is especially great. The creepy atmosphere and music combined with the dark imagery sets the tone very nicely.

We all know that 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. - Smashing Magazine

I couldn't link some of movie opening title sequences due to copy right issues and unavailability of suitable videos. Will try to fix the list soon.

Title Sequences of Lord Of War is just brilliant one, but Watchmen had even better. Just perfect, and of course, it wouldn't be that great without Bob's work.

Great list. Other great title sequences (at least, that spring to mind right now) are from Scott Pilgrim, Amelie and Watchmen.

You should add Watchmen and Scott Pilgrim for sure :)
