20th Century Home Entertainment (Warning Screens)/Warning Screen Variations

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Fight Club (1999): The warning screen starts as normal, but then suddenly cuts to a split-second, unpausable shot of the same screen, but with 'WARNING" replacing "ATTENTION", the background becoming a "WARNING" wallpaper, and the standard warning text being replaced by "If you are reading this, then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and m**t**bation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned ........ Tyler".

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006): After the standard FBI screen, there is a custom made warning. On a gray background, there is an orange logo with a white Kazakh word with red lines on the left and right going in and out. Then Kazakh text scrolls upward below the Kazakh word. Then in a box appears above the Kazakh word with "WARNING" and on the text, a box appears on top with "SELLING PIRATINGS OF THIS MOVIEDISC WILL RESULT IN PUNISHMENT BY CRUSHING." The warning has an old film look to it.

The Simpsons Movie (2007): In the style of the 2004 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment warning screen, the FBI logo is replaced with an EPA logo and below is text explaining the true nature of the EPA with Russ Cargill's signature on the bottom. This comes before the standard warning on the US DVD release, but appears by itself on the UK DVD.
