Why are opening sequences important?

Why are opening sequences are important?
What is the purpose of a good opening sequence?

  • Sets the mood for the movie and possibly it's plot. 
  • Captures your attention and holds it, or it doesn't. 
  • Set the scene whilst also giving important names and companies who helped bring the film together. 
  • Can introduce you to the main characters of the film, maybe giving a clue of the gender. 
  • From the opening sequence the audience can have an expectation and are already making a judgment on the film that is about to begin.
