Logo: On a rippling crystal blue background, we see part of the letter "A" and a snow avalanche below it. The snow reveals the word "AVALANCHE" and is placed underneath the big "A". Then the snow disappears, and a bolt-like figure flashes in on top of the "A". A line is drawn in, The word "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" appears below under the line, and a byline saying "A DIVISION OF LIONS GATE FILMS CORP." There is a small LG lion standing near the byline.

FX/SFX: The rippling background, the avalanche, and the flash.
