Legendary Pictures/Logo Variations

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Legendary Pictures, with more to be added overtime.

Lady in the Water (2006):

300 film series:

  • 300 (2006): The logo is in yellow stone with brown clouds covering it. This variant was designed by yU+co, who also did the 2010-2014 and 2019 logos.

  • 300: Rise of an Empire (2014): The Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures logos are seen on doors that open up to reveal the mural of Leonides and the 300 Spartans.

The Dark Knight trilogy:

  • The Dark Knight (2008): The logo is in a navy blue tint.

  • The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Same as the previous film, but with the 2010 logo instead.

Watchmen film series:

  • Watchmen (2009): The logo is black on a goldenrod background, with the text in Futura, just like the Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Entertainment, and Paramount logos.

  • Watchmen: Under the Hood (2009, DTV): The logo is banana yellow on a black stripe between two banana yellow stripes, and the other logos (Warner Premiere, Paramount Pictures, and DC) fly in succession with the same variation.

Where the Wild Things Are (2009): The logo is covered with Max's scribblings, just like the Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow versions.

Ninja Assasin (2009): The logo is metallic and moves differently.

Inception (2010): The logo is in black-and-white.

The Town (2010): The logo is darker than usual and is in a shade of black & white.

Sucker Punch (2011): The logo appears on a stage curtain, with the curtain rising to reveal a girl sitting on bedside.

Wrath of the Titans (2012): This was the first film to use the 2012 version of the 2010 logo. The logo is etched onto a stone wall.

Man of Steel (2013): The logo is metallic steel and moves differently on a tunnel-like background.

Interstellar (2014): The logo is brown and dusty, representing Earth's arid dry state in the film.

Jurassic World (2015): The logo fades to white.

Crimson Peak (2015): The logo is tinted in red.

Krampus (2015): The logo tinted in turquoise and the text is covered in snow and ice. This was done by Filmograph.

The Great Wall (2016): After the Universal logo is done, the logo shows up over the globe, then it turns counterclockwise and zooms into China on the globe.

The MonsterVerse: For most of these films, these were done by yU+co, who also did the regular logo.

  • Kong: Skull Island (2017): The logo is metallic blue, put upon a sky background, and the camera zooms around it.

  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019): The logo is on an Egyptian-like artwork and is made of ancient symbols stone.

  • Godzilla vs. Kong (2021): The logo is in rusty blue on a wall (to represent Godzilla) and animates differently. On yU+co's website, it is in open-matte, and cuts in and out instead of fading in and out.
  • Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (2024): The logo is set in the Hollow Earth and made out of violet crystals. After a few seconds, it brightens up to start the movie. Unlike the previous variants, this was done by Picturemill.

Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018): The entire logo is made of neon, and it takes place on a space background. Also, the text starts off in the screen center, with the camera moving through it as it zooms backwards, and it moves into its correct position.

Enola Holmes film series:

  • Enola Holmes (2020, Netflix): The logo is animated on parchment paper, and when it finishes, tree branches and flowers draw themselves around the logo.
  • Enola Holmes 2 (2022, Netflix): Same as the first film, but the logo is shown to be burning on a piece of parchment paper with smoke on the sides at the end.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022, Netflix): The logo is red against a black background, bearing a striking resemblance to the 2006-2009 logo. The beginning is also cut.

Fresh (2022, Hulu/Disney+): The logo is already formed and still against a black background. Seen at the end of the film.

A Christmas Story Christmas (2022, HBO Max): The logo's trails start off in red, and the background is brown. When we pan around to show the infinity trails, it pulls back as a flash occurs from it, and the zoom out from the logo is faster. Then the logo gains red and green neon colors as the camera slowly zooms away.

The Machine (2023): The logo is tinted in red on a black background, like the version used in Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It is also zoomed in a bit.
