Structure of Openings

Narrative opening - For this example I am going to show Panic Room. This kind of opening starts the movie and lets the viewers enjoy the sites of New York at the same time as the titles come over and show; the actors names, production company, distributers.

Discrete opening - For this example I am going to show Seven. This opening is very distorted, we start off with the movie and then the titles running over it. We see a close up of someones fingers. Also the sound is very eerie.

Titles over blank screen - For this example I am going to show Donnie Darko. This opening shows title over a blank screen, then the movie starts. This is very boring and dull.

Stylised editing opening - For this example I am going to show The Taking of Pelham 123. This editing is quite fast paced. Also it runs over the movie, letting the viewer enjoy the scenery. When the credits come on we see an image like a train bringing the actors names on. 
The music over is Jay Z's "99 Problems".
