Background

This is the production company of Dino De Laurentiis.

Dino De Laurentiis Distribuzione

(1954-1960s)

Technique: None.

Availability: Rare. This logo can be found on Fellini's La Strada.

Dino de Laurentiis Communications

(1990-1994)

Logo: We see a red outline of a circle and a long rectangle. The lion from the previous logo fades in, along with the words "DINO DE LAURENTIIS COMMUNICATIONS" which is placed inside the long rectangle.

Variant: Sometimes, the word "presents" fades in below the logo.

Technique: Just the fading.

1st Logo (February 23, 1996-February 9, 2001)

Variant: On Hannibal, the full name doesn't appear.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the movie.

2nd Logo (September 30, 2002- )


Logo: We see the lion statue (as in the DEG logo) zooming out from the screen as a box zoomed out surrounding the lion statue and takes into place on a space background. We see "DDLC" above the box.

Variant: On Red Dragon and the Hannibal TV series, "Dino De Laurentiis Company" is below the box.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: None.

The De Laurentiis Company

(July 9, 2015- )

Logo: On a stormy blue-orange sunset background with lightning striking, a golden lion statue similar to those from the previous logos is seen roaring. As this happens, a dark blue/green bar fades below the lion as the 3D letters "DLC", set in a serif font and colored in a blue-red gradient, fade in below said line, while a red flash of light draws another dark blue/green line below the "DLC". Meanwhile, the words "THE DE LAURENTIIS COMPANY", colored gold and set in a serif font, zoom out from the bottom of the screen while turning towards the viewer, settling below the bottom line.

Technique: The lion roaring, the text and the lines appearing, and the lightning striking. All CGI.

Music/Sounds: TBA.

Availability: Seen on the Hannibal TV series starting with Season 3 Episode 6.
