I originally predicted that Smokin'
Aces would start with the whole phone conversation excerpt
we saw from the trailer. No flashy intro, just an extended scene in some
undercover vehicle. It turns out that things might not go down this way.
At least, not if they stuck with the title sequence available online.
Smokin' Aces Title Sequence
'RonJon' tells us that the title sequence available for Smokin'
Aces over at VooDooDog
is old, as in not being used (anymore) with the finished product. The clip
reminds me of what you'd get if you mixed Lock, Stock, Snatch
and Ocean's 11 all into one film.
An early screening report discussed the title sequence and it the details
in that don't match up to what is being shown here. So I guess we should
assume that 'RonJon' is correctomundo with his claim that this title sequence
is outdated. No matter, I wasn't really feeling it all that much anyway.
After all that the trailer has shown us, this intro seems a little too subtle.
Check out once was (and still maybe is) the title sequence for Smokin'
Aces over a VooDooDog.
Find the menu option that says 'Title Sequences' you dunce.
If you happen to live in the UK and catch the film this weekend, let us
know how close the real title sequence is to this baby.
