    Best Opening Credits, Great Movie Soundtracks, Mads Mikkelsen in Indy 5, and More

    Best Opening Credits, Great Movie Soundtracks, Mads Mikkelsen in Indy 5, and More

    On the April 15, 2021 episode of /Film Daily, /Film senior writer Ben Pearson is joined by writers Hoai-Tran Bui and Chris Evangelista to discuss the latest film and TV news, including Mads Mikkelsen joining Indiana Jones 5, Universal’s Renfield director, and an announcement about a new Mike Flanagan film. Then we answer some listener questions in the mailbag.
    Opening Banter: 
     
    In The News:
    Chris: ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Cast Adds ‘Hannibal’ and ‘Another Round’ Star Mads Mikkelsen
    HT: ‘Renfield’: Universal’s ‘Dracula’ Spin-Off Finds Director in ‘Tomorrow War’ Helmer Chris McKay
    Chris: ‘The Season of Passage’: Mike Flanagan Directing Christopher Pike Adaptation
     
    In the Mailbag:
     
    Over the past year I’ve started to get serious about writing about film. Something I wanted to ask was how did you all find and gain confidence in your voice/opinion? I know that technically people can never have “right” or “wrong” opinions because it’s entirely up to the individual. However in the world of film twitter discourse it feels easier than ever to doubt your opinion’s validity and question whether you know enough about film theory to give one. On the opposite end of the spectrum, how do you know if you personally like/dislike something or if your opinion is skewed by the popular consensus? – Connor from Central Florida (who also said some very nice things that we greatly appreciate)
     
    During all the water coolers, I’m always curious: what are you all listening to? Maybe you don’t like listening to music but it made me think, what are your top music soundtracks of all time? Any genre is acceptable. Mine have to be Baby Driver, Me, Earle & the Dying Girl, Sing Street, and Black Panther. – Charlie from Baltimore
     
    I love a good opening credit sequence! They seem to have become more and more of a rare occurrence, but when done well they can really put you into the right mood for the story to follow. Some of my favorites are the intro credits for Zombieland and Fincher’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. What are some of your favorite intro credit sequences? – Tyler from Seattle
