1st Logo (November 2, 2018)

Visuals: On a light blue gradient background, there is a blue line. The line separates into two lines that form the shape of a rectangle. While this happens, the 2010 BET logo slides in from the left of the rectangle, and "FILMS" slides in from the right of the rectangle.

Variant: On the trailer for Nobody's Fool, the animation is faster.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: None.

Availability: Only seen on the trailer for Nobody's Fool and later on the film itself.

2nd Logo (February 8, 2019-)

Visuals: On a dark blue gradient background, the screen zooms out from several rectangular-shaped objects before the screen zooms out from the BET logo. A lens flare appears as "FILMS" blurs in.

Variant: A later version exists in which the rectangles don't have a gradient. This appeared on Body Cam, released on May 19, 2020.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: None or the opening theme of the film.
