A Villain Opening Scene [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin begins the story with the villain]]. As it's an EstablishingCharacterMoment, often the villain's first act will be a KickTheDog or MoralEventHorizon crossing moment that serves to show how evil or {{Badass}} he is, and often sets up the situation that the hero then has to resolve.

* Seems to be a recurring thing in the ''Franchise/StarWars Saga''. The original trilogy opens with a shot of an Imperial Star Destroyer (Episode IV having one chasing a Rebel Blockade Runner, Episode V having it deploying probe droids, and Episode VI dropping off a shuttle to deliver Darth Vader to the second Death Star). The latest film, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' (Episode VII), opens with a First Order Star Destroyer deploying landing ships containing bunches of stormtroopers to land on Jakku to raid a village for a map piece that contains Luke Skywalker's location.
