There is no gravity on the Event Horizon. The movie makes a point of showing magnetic boots keeping everyone on the floor. Yet when Justin is sucked into the "heart of the ship", the resulting shock wave hits Capt Miller and he is thrown against a wall. He then falls to the floor, instead of floating in the air like the rest of the loose debris on the ship.
The opening credits are sucked into a black hole. The screen viewpoint pans upward, above, and over the regular Paramount mountain before the opening credits, which usually remains stationary and then fades out.
