Nonsense Logo Plastering

Bad plasters and plasters that make no sense!

To start off:
ITV2 for some reason plaster on the Universal at the front of most movies they show. I first noticed this when I saw Turbo on the BBC iPlayer. The film began with the 20th Century Fox logo, as usual.
I then saw the above film on ITV2 a few months later. The film, however began with the Universal logo.

Any reason why?
Get down to Complico for complicated deals!

Films produced by DreamWorks Animation were originally distributed worldwide by DreamWorks Pictures from 1998 to 2006, then by Paramount Pictures from 2006 to 2012 and 20th Century Fox from 2013 to 2017. Universal Pictures currently distributes DWA's films from 2019 onward, as well as owning the rights to DWA's back catalogue.

Just a change in who's currently distributing the film.

Yes Universal now own DreamWorks so Fox don't own the movie anymore.

It won't be ITV doing it.

When Turbo was originally released, DreamWorks Animation had a distribution deal with 20th Century Fox (as it was then called), since then the company has become a subsidiary of Universal Studios, so distribution rights will have moved there . iPlayer must’ve used an old copy.

Edit: you’re all too fast for me!

I love the idea that ITV are pulling Hollywood films into Windows Movie Maker and replacing the studio logos. I’d love to know why that would be.

The only weird thing ITV still do with films is add black bars at the sides on certain scenes or show an image in a slight all round frame so viewers (seemingly only those watching in 4:3, which in this day and age are essentially zero) won’t lose out a bit of text or a person standing on the edge of the frame. I haven’t noticed any other broadcaster do this.
