The Stone Quarry

(December 25, 2020-)

Logo: On a black background, we see a hone and chisel with white lines formed in a circle. Then the white lines are drawn to form a diamond with two wheats being drawn and then the words "The Stone Quarry" appears in 3D letters.

Variant: On Army of the Dead and Army of Thieves, an extended version exists. A burst of light appears with squares coming out. Then something like a camera's shutter emerges out of the light. The shutter opens, revealing the hone and chisel. Then the logo forms as usual.

Technique: 2D mixed with CGI animation, mainly for the hone and chisel and the company name. This was done by yU+co.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie or none.

Availability: It was seen at the end of Wonder Woman 1984 and Zack Synder's Justice League. It also appeared at the beginning of Army of the Dead and Army of Thieves.
