Impact Pictures

1st Logo (September 10, 2004)

Visuals: Same as the second Davis-Films logo, but the text on the rhombus is already there and there's a second, solid rhombus with the word "IMPᐱCT" and the word "CANADA" below conjoined to the rhombus.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The opening theme.

Availability: Seen only on Resident Evil: Apocalypse.

2nd Logo (September 7, 2006-September 25, 2009)

Visuals: There is a lightbulb in the dark. The screen fades into more closer shots of it, as it starts lighting up. Then a moth flies to the lightbulb, and gets zapped by the lightbulb while it surrounds with swirling sparks as close-ups of the action are shown. Later on, there is the same lightbulb with bloodmarks making the words "IMPACT PICTURES" on it. The camera gets a bit far from the lightbulb as it flashes brighter.

Variant: A print version exists on closing credits, which is merely the name in two lines.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Sounds of the action, mostly zapping and the lightbulb being touched, and a camera flash sound when the lightbulb flashes.

Availability: The full version was seen exclusively on D.O.A. (2006). The closing version appears on Resident Evil: Extinction and Pandorum; on the latter, the closing version shares the screen with the Overture Films and Constantin Film logos.

3rd Logo (September 10, 2010-January 27, 2017)

Visuals: In space, a silhouette of a planet appears. The camera zooms out to reveal the full planet, as well as the text "I M P A C T P I C T U R E S".


  • On Pompeii, it has the word "POMPEII" added below the logo.
  • On Resident Evil: Afterlife, the entire text is replaced by "DᐱᐯIS FILMS" and "IMPᐱCT CᐱNᐱDᐱ", both in the same font as the former logo.
  • On Resident Evil: Retribution, the text is in the same font used by Impact Pictures and "PICTURES" replaces "CANADA".

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The opening theme of the movie, or silence.

Availability: Seen on Musketeers, Pompeii and Resident Evil films from Afterlife to The Final Chapter.
