Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Main Title Sequence 

20th Century Fox

The opening credits for Mr. & Mrs. Smith begin in a marital therapy session attended by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and the main title cards inter cut with the dialogue. The challenge was to deliver the information without detracting from the humor of the sequence. The typeface, Univers, was chosen for its almost generic quality, suggesting the anonymity of the film's main characters. Like the main characters, the end title cards appear and reappear in different locations, engaging the viewer in a fame of "guess where they'll show up next."
