These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Sony Entertainment, with more to be added overtime.

Think Like a Man Too (2014):

  • The opening theme of the movie syncs to the "ding" sound, and the zoom-in to the "O" is slightly faster, much like the Screen Gems logo.

Concussion (2015):

  • The logo animates as usual, though we transition to the Torch Lady already fully zoomed out as "COLUMBIA" fades in.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017):

  • In the prototype version, the logo is formed by red pixels and a red outline around them and the flash is red. When we zoom through the O, the pixels then zoom over the camera quickly before cutting to the Columbia variant.
  • In the alternate version, the logo glitches in a similar manner as the Columbia logo and it zooms into the camera as the normal logo, but then comes back to normal albeit black and white when the O is about to engulf the screen.

Peter Rabbit (2018): The logo zooms between the "O" and "N", and then the Sony Pictures Animation logo fades in on a black background.

Proud Mary (2018): The logo plays normally, but as the logo zooms into the camera, the background becomes red, the Sony logo becomes 2D and yellow, and it transitions into the retro Screen Gems variant from the movie.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018): The logo is basically the same, but with a quicker pace and with comic book-esque dots. As we zoom through the O, colored dots form the O as we zoom through them and the Columbia logo variant is shown. The build-up part of the standard Columbia fanfare can audibly be heard, a la the standard Columbia logo. This was made by Devastudios.

Invasion (2020, Russia): The logo is tinted in dodger blue.

The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021, Netflix): The light at the beginning is removed, but the logo still is seen lighting up. As the Sony ding plays, the flash is replaced with a cartoony purple, yellow and orange explosion. Then, we zoom into the center hole of the O, which also shines in the three colors. We then enter a portal with the same colors with an orange end. After we finish zooming, the logo transitions into a similar variant of the Columbia logo.

Vivo (2021, Netflix): The logo is in a darker shade of light blue and the flash is formed of two irises formed by dots. As the logo zooms, various white dots appear on the "O" while the opening theme plays as the dots flicker along to the music. We zoom into the center dot of the O, transitioning into the retro variant of the Columbia logo.

Hotel Transylvania: Transformania (2022, Amazon): The logo flashes as normal, but then after a few seconds, the "O" grows fangs. The "O" stays this way during the zoom in to the almost-formed Columbia logo, which is faster than usual. This was also the last film to use the 2014 Sony logo, as most films had began to use the 2021 logo at this point.

Veneciafrancia and the Better Call Saul episode "Nippy" (both 2022): The 2021 logo is in black and white. The former, a Spanish film, is in scope and it zooms to the Sony Pictures International Productions logo in the same effect, while the latter is in 16:9 and transitions to the Sony Pictures Television Studios logo.

Chickenhare and the Hamster of Darkness (2022): The short version of the 2021 logo, seen on trailers and promotional material, is used. Like Veneciafrancia, it flashes to the Sony Pictures International Productions logo.
