The visually pleasing “life of a bullet” sequence is a perfect opening for a film about an arms dealer. 720p HD version.

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.

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

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
