RatPac-Dune Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


RatPac Entertainment was an American motion picture financing company/production company formed in September 2013 by filmmaker Brett Ratner (who previously formed Rat Entertainment) and billionaire James Packer. The company merged with Dune Entertainment, which became a co-financing partner with Warner Bros., following the expiration of their contract with Legendary Pictures. The name eventually became RatPac-Dune Entertainment, which is a company in-name only; the company is credited on movies as RatPac Entertainment. In 2017, sexual allegations resurfaced against Ratner, which resulted in Warner Bros. cutting ties with RatPac. In late 2017, Access Entertainment bought Packer's controlling stake in the company, with Rampage becoming the final film to be co-financed by the company with Warner Bros., and also the final film produced by RatPac. Sometime in 2018, the studio shut down and its operations were folded into Access Entertainment.

Logo (June 10, 2014-November 17, 2017)

Visuals: A burst of light occurs in the center, emitting blue-gray rays. The camera spins towards the center, spinning the rays until they form two solid beams adjacent to each other. The two solid beams then spin around to reveal two solid objects. The camera stops spinning and the objects then center into place. One of the objects is a right triangle, while the other object seems to be half of a rounded rectangle with the lower left corner cut to fit the right triangle on the bottom. The company name fades in, and the logo zooms back a bit and shines.

Byline: For a short time in 2017, starting with Dunkirk and ending with Justice League, the byline "An Access Entertainment Company" is shown below after the logo finishes its animation. The logo with the byline first debuted in on the previously-mentioned film (only at the end, and albeit still), The full version of the logo with the byline was first seen on IT (albeit using a custom variant), and the standard variant with the full animation debuted on Geostorm.


  • On some films, such as The Lego Ninjago Movie, Geostorm and Wonder Woman, the company name is omitted.
  • On the short-lived TV adaptation of Rush Hour, the logo is next to the New Line Television logo, and the word "ENTERTAINMENT" is replaced by "TELEVISION".
  • Starting with Run All Night, the logo is given an enhanced look as it briefly dissolves at the beginning and the finished logo is silver.
  • A still version is seen at end of some movies, such as Magic Mike XXL.
  • On Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, the word "ENTERTAINMENT" is replaced by "DOCUMENTARY FILMS".

Technique: CGI animated by Grand Jeté. The RatPac logo itself was designed by Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv.

Audio: A suspenseful percussion tune with a synth orchestra in the background (composed by Mateo Messina). In other cases, it uses the opening theme of the movie.

Audio Variant: On The Lego Batman Movie, the opening theme of the movie plays while Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) narrates over the logo: "Hmm, not sure what RatPac does, but that logo is macho. I dig it." A loud clang is heard as the logo comes together.


  • Seen on certain movies made by this company, but not all of them, as it doesn't appear on films such as The Lego Movie, The 15:17 to Paris (which uses a variant of Access Entertainment's 1st logo), or Rampage (which was the last film released before RatPac's closure).
  • The logo debuted on Edge of Tomorrow and last appeared on Justice League (theatrical prints only).
  • On home media prints of Justice League, this is plastered with the Access Entertainment logo, most likely due to the allegations against Brett Ratner.
