Crap photo, but you get the idea...

And another gem of an appearance (more so than an entrance)

Is this more of an exit...?

Don't particularly like the film, but I love this entrance, esp. his grin (couldn't find a piccie of that):

I couldn't find any stills that do it justice, but Salma Hayek's entrance in From Dusk 'Til Dawn... In the words of Richie Cunningham, "Yowzah, Yowzah, Yowzah!"

Not sure if this next one is strictly a first entrance, but it counts for me...:

"'Slow ahead'... I can go slow ahead, why don't you come down here and chum some of this shit?"

Again, can't find the pic, but Leon's emergence out of the dark behind a knife is legend.

delrusso666 -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 3:28:21 PM)

victor the cleaner in "nikita",, now there is one self motivated psycho.

most subliminal entrance has to go to tyler durden "fight club" that flicker of a frame where he appears in the corridor,,, fabulous.




Hotlips -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 3:34:16 PM)

If we're talking single characters then O'ren in Kill Bill was pretty good.




irc_addicts -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 3:36:35 PM)

I think i will have to go with captain jack.




Timon -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 3:41:02 PM)

El Mariachi's entrance in Desperado

adt100 -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 6:01:59 PM)

Two that immediately spring to mind that I'm surprised no-one has yet mentioned -

Lawrence of Arabia - Sherif Ali

LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring - Aragorn




doncopey1 -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 7:32:28 PM)

How come no one has mentioned the greatest of all time and Empires greatest it was too:

[image]http://www.cedmagic.com/featured/007/dn-1-0823-james-bond.jpg[/image]

James bond




themessiah -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 7:45:14 PM)

Its a fight between Bond in Dr No and Sherif Ali in Lawrence of Arabia.... think I'm going with Sherif Ali.

Oh hang on, Frank (Henry Fonda) in Once Upon a Time in the West has got a fantastic entrance also.




Malky -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 8:06:40 PM)

Gandalf the White, anyone?




super pete -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 8:14:26 PM)

Whenever the Crow (not Eric Draven) enters a room/building/place....he also makes a damn fine exit aswell!!

clare_star_ -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 9:22:54 PM)

The first two that came to mind were Jack Sparrow and his amazing sinking boat and Gandalf the White in Two Towers. I agree with Frank in Rocky Horror as well though, classic entrance indeed.

I'm not sure if this is an entrance as such but in Beauty and the Beast when Belle says 'come into the light' and the Beast steps out (this might be the first time we see him fully which is why I think it counts) is also fantastic. The horror of what he is coupled with her willingness to sacrifice herself makes it really powerful.

Oh and what about Edward Scissorhands?   




doncopey1 -> RE: Best Character Entrance (11/4/2006 9:57:26 PM)

Even though the film is shit, Batman's in BATMAN FOREVER, when he comes through the roof thats the best Batman entrance i've seen yet!




Your Funny Uncle -> RE: Best Character Entrance (25/1/2012 4:56:19 PM)

You can't beat Captain Jack Sparrows entrance, I know it's been mentioned a few times but it really is the greatest character entrance....




UTB -> RE: Best Character Entrance (25/1/2012 5:23:44 PM)

*Obligatory The Third Man post*






Whistler -> RE: Best Character Entrance (25/1/2012 6:51:14 PM)

Grown-up Indy in The Last Crusade.

Bullet-tooth Tony in Snatch.

Blade in Blade 1 & 2.

The Joker in The Dark Knight.
