Metropolis Releasing

NOTE: Not affiliated with Estúdios Metropolis de Cinematografia (Iglesian Archipelago). Also, Metropolis Releasing didn't have a logo from 2003-2009.

1st Logo
(1987-1991, 2001-2002)

2nd Logo
(1991-2001, 2002-2003, 2012)
Metropolis Releasing (1991)
Logo: On a dark blue, starry background, we see a silhouette of the New York City skyline. "METROPOLIS" zooms to the screen a la the text in the 1970s Sanrio Films logo. The texts "A" and "RELEASE" in the same font as each other appear from a glow a la the Disney logo in the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo. The byline "Distributed by Paramount - A Paramount Communications Company" fades in.

  • In 1995, the byline changed to "Distributed by Paramount - A VIACOM COMPANY".
  • From 2002 to 2003, the Twin Towers were removed from the skyline.
  • In the 2012 film The '90s Are All That: The Movie, the logo followed the 1986 Paramount logo customized for the film and the Paramount byline was removed.

: early 90s 2-D Animation.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized choir with a saxophone playing the last few notes of "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra.

Availability: Common; first seen in the 1991 film Arnie's Adventure Across America. Also seen on Snow White in Manhattan (1994), Say Hello to My Little Friend (1998), The Bug (1997), and the unsuccessful live-action film Under My Bed (2000).

Scare Factor: Low.

3rd Logo

4th Logo
Logo: We start with an image the 2011 Paramount Pictures logo, but background fades to the New York City skyline from the previous two logos and the stars fly from the Paramount logo to the sky in the New York City skyline. Then METROPOLIS zooms in a la the V of Doom. The word "RELEASING" suddenly appears.

: 3D animation with a text zooming-in.

Music/Sounds: The last few notes of "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra played by an orchestra.

Availability: Currently seen on most Metropolis shows on the era.

Scare Factor: Low to High. The text zooming-in may scare more than few.
