James Bond’s introduction is one of the most iconic images in film. It has changed slightly over the years but the essence of the sequence (and the shot) remains the same.

The eponymous secret agent walks across screen, fires his weapon directly at the audience and then watches as blood drips across the screen before we are plummeted into his next adventure.
