Atlas Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Not to be confused with Atlas Film or Atlas International.


Atlas Entertainment is the production company of Charles Roven. Its name comes from the Greek mythological figure, Atlas. It was originally formed in 1995 from the merger of Roven and Bob Cavallo's previous company and Steel Pictures, owned by Roven's wife Dawn Steel. In 1999, after Cavallo left the company to join Walt Disney Studios and Steel's death, Atlas was merged with Gold/Miller Management to create Mosaic Media Group. In 2008, Roven split off his ties from Mosaic, and relaunched Atlas Entertainment with a first-look deal at Sony Pictures.

2nd Logo (February 12, 2009-July 6, 2018)

Visuals: There is a gleaming image of a rotating globus, depicting Earth in ancient scripts. Shreds of white steam pass around as the camera zooms out, and the globus turns glowing white. It lies on the shoulders of a man, a reference to the Greek mythological figure, Atlas. The silver words "ATLAS ENTERTAINMENT" are seen below in Relief font.

The words "ATLAS" in a Trajan font and "ENTERTAINMENT" in an Avenir Next font zoom out below.
