A look back at the many iterations of the Fox fanfare and logo before the new era of the famed studio commences this February.
1935 - 1968 (used in tandem with the CinemaScope logo)
1953 - 1987 (used in tandem with the original logo before its retirement in 1968)
Slightly different looking one here for CinemaScope 55 films
1935 fanfare returns for this one
1979 - 1987 fanfare
1981 - 1994 (This would serve as a template for the first CGI Fox logo)
Re-recording of the long fanfare used from 1982 to 1994
First CGI logo used from 1994 to 2009
This was the first version of the fanfare used from 1994 to 1997. This has an orchestra 3 times bigger than before and it was recorded in the same stage the original 1935 fanfare was recorded. This one's a bit more echoier towards the end.
And the current fanfare we all know and love, still used to this point today! First used in 1997's Anastasia, this was recorded by David Newman, the son of the composer of the original 1933 fanfare used by 20th Century Pictures, Alfred Newman. It was later instated as the current fanfare from January 1998 onwards.
And now we have the current iteration of the CGI tower, possibly will be retiring soon due to the name change. This was the 75th anniversary variant used in films like Avatar back in 2009.
And here's the normal version.
I'm very happy this logo and fanfare is staying with the new 20th Century Studios brand and I can't wait to see their new on-screen logo soon.
The first film to use the name will be a film called "Call of the Wild" due to be released on the 21st February so I suggest you guys see it if you wanna spot the first appearance of the new 20th Century Studios logo. It's directed by Chris Sanders, best known for the Disney classic Lilo and Stitch.
Meanwhile, the first film with the new Searchlight Pictures name and logo is "Downhill", also due for release on the 28th February here in the UK.
