A movies introduction or opening scene is very important. It sets the scene and tone for the movie, if done well it can excite us and leave us in anticipation for what's about to follow. Here are some of my favourites. What intros appeal to you, that get you in the mood and looking forward to the rest of the movie?

 

 

The Zombieland intro is just awesome, the slow motion shots of the beginning of the zombie attack with Metallica playing really sets the scene well.

 

 

Idiocracy is a very funny satire, the opening scene explains the premise of the movie and is very entertaining while doing so.

Deadpool.

It just perfectly sets the tone of the movie. Both humor and ultra-violence.

Guardians Of The Galaxy-I love how it starts off like it's gonna be a serious movie,but then the mood changes to that of a light hearted action comedy when Quill turns the music on and starts dancing and kicking around some aggressive alien rats,and then grabs one of them and starts singing into it like it's a microphone.

Jurassic Park-it's a really intense intro,a bunch of park security guys are transporting some dangerous creature,they're clearly very nervous and scared,and then the creature (later revealed to be a raptor) almost breaks loose and kills one of them.

Easy Rider-it has lots of awesome scenery,two badass looking bikes (one of which is literally the most iconic chopper bike ever) and a great song playing.

I just watched Thor Ragnarok a few days ago,and the intro scene where Thor fights Surtur, his minions and a big dragon while Led Zeppelin is playing in the background is awesome (my favorite MCU movie intro along with GOTG),that whole scene looks like something you could see on some heavy metal album cover.

Enter the void was great, with LFO's "Freak" blasting in the background as we are bombarded by masses of flashing lights. The first 30 minutes filmed in first-person perspective after that was also great. Too bad the rest of the film was kinda underwhelming.

 

 

Assault on Precinct 13's intro was also amazing, with the opening prison shootout scene. John Carpenter's score was one of a kind, and it really set the mood for the whole thing.

Couldn't be arsed to look for just an intro, so just watch the first 3 or so minutes of this, or better yet watch the whole damn movie:
