Total Recall (1990): The logo is on a nighttime sky filled with stars, a 2-D image of the Tri-Star Pictures logo zooms out and warps away. This was seen on the teaser trailer of the film, though other trailers had another version like this but with the Carolco Pictures logo.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991): A shot of the exoskeleton Terminator in front of a flame background flashes a few times over the 1991 logo. Other versions of the trailer use the Carolco Pictures logo.


Bugsy (1991): A camera flashes once over the logo.


Hook (1991): The logo eases back down-left and goes to the storybook. A teaser for it has the "Pegasus Over Pyramid" logo in the print of the storybook. A TV spot has the logo sliced through by Hook's claw.

Universal Soldier: The Return (1999): When the logo is complete, it zooms to Pegasus and flashes away. Only on the theatrical trailer.

  • On the first TV Spot, the logo plays in warp-speed and splits in half to reveal S.E.T.H.
