Centropolis Entertainment

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

This is the production company of producer/director/screenwriter Roland Emmerich.

1st Logo (February 28, 1997)

Logo: On a black background, we see the word "CENTROPOLIS" in a blue, outstretched font. Below it is "ENTERTAINMENT" in white.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Only used on the game Independence Day, which is based on the movie created by Centropolis.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (May 20, 1998-March 7, 2008)

Logo: The camera slides by the side of a flying zeppelin, which heads towards a large city at the horizon. Two more zeppelins float above, while a plane flies by the camera. Searchlights beam from the city. The city is then outlined into a rectangle, and the words, "CENTROPOLIS ENTERTAINMENT" (with "ENTERTAINMENT" under "CENTROPOLIS"), zoom in below the picture.

Variant: On the trailer for The Patriot, the picture was grayscale and the green color in the name milder.

FX/SFX: The animation of flying transports and lights, a bit outdated for now, but still great-looking.

Music/Sounds: An orchestral fanfare (composed by David Arnold) with the sounds of transport motors passing by.

Availability: Common. It can be seen on films like Godzilla, The Thirteenth Floor, The Patriot, Trade and 10,000 BC.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (June 23, 2016- )

Logo: The logo animates like the previous logo concept, but the differences are the color is tinted gold and one plane goes toward differently. "C E N T R O P O L I S" fades and turns in usually, but in a different font. After a while, the picture zooms out to be enclosed in the black background, while "C E N T R O P O L I S" spreads in to fit the length of " E N T E R T A I N M E N T" (also in the different font), which fades in.

Variant: On Moonfall (2022), the logo is in B&W static and alternates between the opening of the movie, which is the Apollo 11's launch in the same effect as the Lionsgate, UK Moonfall LLP, Huayi Brothers and AGC Studios logos.

FX/SFX: The animation (this time by Why Worry Production) is still great-looking, but it seems that they didn't make much of an improvement.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme to the film.

Availability: Current. First debuted on Independence Day: Resurgence and later appeared on Midway and Moonfall.

Editor's Note: Only time would tell if the fanfare from the previous logo will be used.
