Title Sequence - The Taking Of Pelham 123

1. State the Production & Distribution companies. How are they introduced? What purpose do they serve at the start of the movie?

Columbia Pictures - Columbia Pictures are introduced by showing their intro/opening title before the movie starts.

Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures - When the movie starts and a wide shot of the cityscape is shown, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures is shown in black text.

The purpose they serve is that it introduce the audience to the companies who should be credited for making the movies possible; and by viewing the intro, the audience may recognize it from previous movies so then they will most likely guess if the movie is high standards or not.
