InterStar Releasing

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


InterStar Releasing Corporation was a theatrical distribution company controlled (with a 51% stake) by Westinghouse Broadcasting. Between 1990 and 1993, InterStar made deals with exhibitors to cut the theatrical and ancillary grosses of low-to-medium-budget films. Westinghouse ended the venture in May 1993.

Visuals: On a black background, there is a close-up of an oval-shaped piece of granite zooming out towards a comfortable distance, alongside a circular orange orb which brightens the object. The orb spins around the oval as it flips and stretches in width. As it happens, the word "I N T E R S T A R" appears in a closed-blinds effect. When it reaches a certain distance, the granite becomes a white oval, tilted at a 90-degree angle with an "i" carved into it, while the orb becomes an orange sphere which dots the "i". The background fades to green marble.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: None in some cases. However, an alternate version with wind noises and chimes was spotted on an Amazon Prime print of Split Second.

Availability: Seen on U.S. and international prints of Knight Moves and Split Second. This might have been on theatrical prints of Highlander II: The Quickening and A Midnight Clear, but home video releases of those films don't use this logo.
