OpeningEG2: The Warriors

Production: Paramount Pictures
Budget: $7m; US box office: $3.5m
IMDB 7.6/10


I like the idea of using the font to connote the strong and the violence however I more into girly chick flicks so may adapt this idea to a more girly format but I like the direct links. 



Paramount Pictures

text for titles
the titles are shown in a bold red colour and the font that has been used is specifically chosen for the genre of the film which has a a graffiti style that looks like it has been painted across the screen. This signifies the bold red being violent and could connote blood also red is a strong colour so it could signify someone or something being mentally or physically strong.
