While I loved JJ's drama and action packed take on Trek, I can't say I remember any credit sequence at all.
There was no credit sequence, but I thought it had a great title sequence and that was due mainly to the music. We hear "Enterprising Young Men" starting to build while the shuttles are adrift in space followed by the screen going dim. Then the delta appears with the title "STAR TREK" as the track hits its peak.
Yup, that title reveal gave me a shiver, great music there as well.

I'd have to say the the best title sequence on the list is either Watchmen or Sweeney Todd.

If we're not talking movies I'd say Carnivale, and if we're not speaking specifically of opening titles, I'd say Iron Man and Lemnony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" had some great credits sequences.

I've always adored the opening credits in Se7en.

Kyle Cooper did that one, and is a brilliant title designer...he also did the Spider-Man credit sequences and designed Marvel's flipbook logo. You know, the one DC ripped off.
I can't say I really liked the Spider-Man credit sequence. I do really like the Marvel flipbook logo though, and I remember wondering how on earth DC had the balls to rip it off so blatantly.

How'd Wolverine & Spider-Man get on the list, but not The Incredible Hulk? Or even Ang Lee's Hulk?

Out of the options, I'd say Watchmen is the best of the poll.

Re: Best Opening Movie Credit sequence of the Century?

I jumped the gun and voted for 'Casino Royale' mainly by lumping in the great pre-credits sequence, the credits themselves, and the post-credits parkour exhibition, which isn't exactly fair.

Just going by the credits alone, I would agree that 'Watchmen' had the strongest. The music and imagery was just perfectly matched and really got you into the mood and backstory of the film.

What? No love for Barbarella?

In the opening credits for Barbarella the titles cover Jane Fonda's ahhh.. naughty bits as she gets out of her spacesuit while floating around in zero G. The letters in the titles spill out as she detaches parts of the suit and they float around with her.

Or do you mean 'of the 21st Century so far'?

Superman Returns had an awesome credits sequence. It brilliantly updated the flying through space aspect of the original film's credits sequence by showing us tons of great looking planets and asteroids, and, of course, John Williams' score. Say what you want about the movie, I know it's not super popular, but the credits are fantastic.

What I'm surprised at is no UP?
I voted for Watchmen but that was just as good.

Just remembered the one for Dawn of the Dead, which warrants a mention at least.

A century? 100 years? And this is the list? These wouldn't make my botton 500.

Wait, it's 2100 already? Damn, I must have fallen into a cryopod or something.
