Lord of War (2005)
The visually pleasing “life of a bullet” sequence is a perfect opening for a film about an arms dealer. 720p HD version.
People who added this item 5943 Average listal rating (4115 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.1
The retro animated intro to Catch Me If You Can perfectly sets the scene and time period.

Seven (1995)
A wonderfully creepy title sequence that perfectly sets the mood for the film you’re about to watch.

Superbad (2007)
It’s amazing how much personality can be expressed in a simple silhouette.

There were a lot of animated opening title sequences in the 60′s.
People who added this item 4106 Average listal rating (2826 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8
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.
C!pH3r's rating:
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.

Vibrant colors, great animation and an amazing score. This title sequence has it all.

Fight Club (1999)
One amazing sequence starts at a microscopic level and continues to expand outward until we are looking down the barrel of a gun.

We would be remiss not to include the original Pink Panther in this list.
People who added this item 2255 Average listal rating (1459 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.6
A very clever title sequence with the credits written on vintage cigarette packaging.

In a world where the simple act of reading has been outlawed it only makes sense to have the titles read to you.
People who added this item 1283 Average listal rating (728 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.5
Delicatessen (1991)
Just beautiful in all respects. A wonderful use of practical effects – they don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 4789 Average listal rating (3376 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.4
Alien (1979)
A very slow paced, minimalist title sequence. The result is nothing but haunting.
C!pH3r's rating:
People who added this item 124 Average listal rating (74 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.3
The concept is fairly simple but it’s so well done and the final result works beautifully.
People who added this item 1790 Average listal rating (1100 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Another great example of a contemporary film featuring an old school animated introduction.

Panic Room (2002)
This is the third David Fincher movie to make this list, it seems the man can appreciate a great title sequence. This is a very basic concept yet it’s brilliantly executed.
Wonderful imagery combined with the hand written text makes for a very unique and memorably title sequence.

A series of intersecting lines form into a skyscraper. Very cool effect, especially for the time.

It only makes sense for a film about a comic book creator to have the credits in a comic book fashion.

The James Bond franchise really understood the beauty of a great title sequence. Though we only included one classic in this list, the rest are here in spirit.

The credits for American Psycho play as many mind games on you as the film itself. Great attention to typography.Warning: Course Language!

The Kingdom (2007)

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
