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