Movies With the 25 Best Opening Scenes According to Studiobinder

"In psychology, there's something called the serial position effect. It means people tend to remember what comes first and last, not what occurs in the middle. Filmmakers know this phenomenon all too well. Combine that with today's stream-ability and countless options… and the opening to a film is as important as ever. Today, we study the best opening scenes in movies to see how the best in the business grab the audience and never let go. Ground rules: It has to be the first scene of the movie. If the movie opens with titles, it's the first scene after the opening titles. Some of these openings are actually a few scenes compiled together into a heist, meeting, or something of that nature; selected metrics: Grab Factor, Memorability, Sets the Stage. That's it. It's simple. Does your favorite flick have what it takes to make the list? And now, without further ado, the best opening scenes in movies list." - studiobinder.com
