[15] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Favourite Character Introductions

Getting into a movie is the hardest part about watching a movie I'd say - and it's also the reason why a lot of people (including most of my friends and acquaintances) choose tv shows over the demanding task of watching movies. A good way to escape the "intro trap" is a solid, either very surprising or very cool character introduction. That way, you have the audience's attention right from the beginning and their curiosity for the character and story will shorten the complicated intro phase.Even I can have problems beginning new movies, especially when I haven't been in the watching-habit for a while, and I have found entertaining introductions - kind of like a cliffhanger at the beginning of a movie - to be especially effective when it comes to really "stepping into" the movie.Here are some of my favourites...Jack SparrowPirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black PearlOne of the best examples of the surprise factor, playing with our expectations from movie tradition.[15] The Upcoming Adult Presents: 18 Favourite Character IntroductionsScott PilgrimScott Pilgrim vs. the WorldThis movie uses a lot of comic book effects which immediately grabbed my attention.


HannaHannaA cool one-liner and a murder would be cool enough for an introduction even if it weren't for the fact that this is a teenage girl.

BoratBorat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of KazakhstanProvocation always works for me.



Hannibal Lecter

Silence of the Lambs
Simple yet very effective: it's all about Hopkins' body-language and intonation.

Aman MathurKal Ho Naa HoAman is introduced - very subtly - as the angel that is going to save the world, slash, Naina's world. It probably would've been too much if it weren't for the wonderful Shah Rukh.

Marie AntoinetteMarie AntoinetteProvocation again, with the Queen of France bathing in cake to the sound of a rock'n'roll song that didn't even exist in her time.

Dolores/ LolitaLolitaYou can see the whole movie in this one little clip - yet you want to continue watching it. That's pretty awesome.



Il PadrinoThe GodfatherGangster coolness at its very best - and yes, this movie is a very bad role model. Even I considered joining the NYC mafia after this.


AlmaTurn Me On, DammitSomething I've never seen in a movie before, mixing discomfort and provocation. A triumph, in a way.



Tyler DurdenFight ClubMay I present to you, ladies and gentlemen: Coolness.

SatineMoulin RougeSpectacular, spectacular!



Dr. Frank 'n' FurterThe Rocky Horror Picture ShowI have never before been in love with a character so much, and a lot of that is due to this introduction. This is style.

AlexA Clockwork OrangeThat stare is going to both kill you and after that revitalize you.



Forrest GumpForrest GumpIt's a cliche, but this is still one of my favorite mottos of all time.



JunoJunoThe way she just walks along the road with that juice bottle in her hand sets the tone for this fluffy little comedy - and leaves you enough time to wonder where she might be heading.

Ajay Chauvan (I know, it's basically Ajay Devgan)GundarajYep, this is what was cool in the 90s Bollywood universe - and I love it!



Will FreemanAbout a BoyNonchalant and charming, while somehow down-to-earth - this certainly makes you want to see more of Will.
What introductions did I miss, any suggestions?
