Touchstone Pictures/Logo Variations
These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Touchstone Pictures.
D.O.A. (1988), Dick Tracy (1990), and Ransom (1996): The logo is in black & white.
The Rocketeer (1991, non-US prints): The logo is in the style of the 1983 Walt Disney Pictures logo seen on US prints.
Ed Wood (1994):Like the D.O.A., Dick Tracy and Ransom variants, the logo is in B&W. However, the animation is altered to have lightning strike the ball, forming the logo. The animation also appears to be much smoother, almost like it's shot on camera.
The Sixth Man (1997): The theme ends abruptly as the "twang" is replaced with the start of Doug E. Fresh's version of "Superstition" that continues over the Mandeville Films logo and into the opening credits.
Kundun (1997):The whole logo, except the flash, is in a permanent geranium lake color.
Bicentennial Man (1999, non-US prints):The Touchstone print logo is featured in the end credits.
Sorority Boys (2002): The thunderball turns into a merit badge.
Gangs of New York (2002): Exactly like the Miramax logo seen in the movie, but the words "MIRAMAX FILMS" are replaced with "TOUCHSTONE PICTURES".
ESPN's Ultimate X: The Movie (2002): We zoom out from around the center of the logo, which plays in warp speed.
The Hot Chick (2002, TV spots): The orb of the logo flashes twice and makes a dinging sound effect.
Déja Vù (2006): The logo plays normally until halfway when it goes backwards. After that, it plays normally.
The Tempest (2010): The logo comes from the sun eclipse on teal background.
I Am Number Four (2010): The logo has a slight orange tint.
When in Rome (2010): When the logo finishes, we zoom out to reveal that the logo is a sign in a painting of an abstract city.
Need for Speed (2014): The first half of the logo is sped up, and after it completes it cuts to black instead of fading out.
