Heh. That's the first thing I thought of as well, but RotLA used the older Paramount logo (#44). #42 = The Usual Suspects. That scene in particular was great.

Just tangentially, do you remember when studio logos were sacrosanct? They stood proudly alone at the beginning of movies, casting their imprimatur over the proceedings but never stooping to converse with any particular film, as that would have been demeaning to the brand.

Now, I practically expect that that mighty logo will go black and white, or grainy, or be revealed as part of a larger scene, or the camera will fly past it, or something, especially for "big" movies. I guess it speaks to the preeminence of "event" movies over studio branding.

The first time I remember seeing this done was Raiders, although it sort of didn't count since (as I am now reminded) Spielberg used the 40s version of the Paramount logo.

Any thoughts as to the first use of a current studio logo as a foil/segue for an opening scene?

I dunno but I also liked when watching the credits actually meant something.

Don't think I really need to know the secretary to the third assistant to the grip.

RotLA aside, the first time I noticed this was Columbia's 'warehouse' intro into their 1998 Godzilla*. Everything went blurry and atomic green...and proceeded to show the Kimodos or whatnot staring at the at the explosion. I thought it was pretty cool (for the time).


* now you understand why I got Reign of Fire and Andaconda on the first go. Any movie with a monster in it is mine.

Actually, didn't Independence Day do it before Godzilla (which I also own). We seem to have similar taste in bad movies, 709.

Could be. Godzilla was the first that came to mind because it was so impactful (it was really well done, you must admit), but I'll have to check out the title sequence of ID4 again tonight. Oh, and in response to your last bit, I'll just paraphrase Jessica Rabbit: "I'm not bad, I'm just made that way".

Isn't the warehouse intro that of Centropolis Entertainment, the company that made both ID4 and Godzilla?
