20th Century Fox
Emil Kosa Jr.
When 20th Century Studios was founded in 1935 as 20th Century Fox, it used the same opening sequence and fanfare as 20th Century Pictures, the only difference is that the word "Pictures" is replaced with the word "Fox" (as reference of the other merged partner companyFox Film Corporation). This design was made by the watercolorist Emil Kosa Jr.
In 1937, the logo was colorized and given a more enhanced look. The last film was Prudence and the Pill, released on May 23, 1968.
In 1953, Rocky Longo repainted the logo when Fox began releasing movies in the widescreen Cinemascope format, starting with How to Marry a Millionaire. The artist tilted the "0" in "20th" so the monolith would look proportional in the format’s wider aspect ratio. This became one of the most memorable logos of the company.
In 1976, the colors of the 1953 logo became less saturated and the structure seems to have a more grainy texture. This logo is also recognized by science fiction fans for being used in films like Star Wars (episodes IV and V) and the first two Alien movies.
This alternative variation was used in the only two Fox films released in CinemaScope 55. It was later reused for a Grandeur 70 version of the logo in 1961 for the 70mm reissue of The King and I (1956).
In 1960, the 1955 logo was tweaked and improved. It was used in the films Can-Can (1960), Cleopatra (1963), The Sound of Music (1965) and later in Doctor Dolittle (1967). It was also used by Fox Interactive in the 1992 Predator 2 videogame and in the episode of The Simpsons: Cue Detective (2015).
Rocky Longo revised the logo in 1981, modifying the font of the "20th" wordmark. This became the main design that the company will use in the following logos for almost four decades. It was first seen in Chu Chu and the Philly Flash and last used in Airheads.
Flip Your Lid Animation (animation)
The logo was reimagined in 1994 as a 21-second CG-animated curtain raiser, designed by Kevin Burns and animated at Studio Productions (now known as Flip Your Lid Animation), with a POV that sweeps from above the "20th" to a panorama of the L.A. Basin, including the Hollywood sign, and storefronts with the names of Fox executives in the signage. Also, the byline A News Corporation Company was added for the first time.
This logo is the most memorable of the company, since it is the first one to be designed in 3D and also the first one to introduce the iconic animation sequence that remained in use in the following versions for over 2 decades and it made it's debut in True Lies.
The logo was slightly modified in 2005, making the colors more vivid and the textures more detailed. It was debuted in Robots, produced by Blue Sky Studios, and the last film to use this logo was Tooth Fairy, released on January 22, 2010.
Blue Sky Studios (animation)
In 2009, the logo was updated with a more advanced CG
animation. It was created by Blue Sky Studios and it made it's debut in James Cameron's Avatar.
This logo was last shown in The Heat, released on June 28, 2013.
After News Corporation splitted into 21st Century Fox (now defunct) and News Corp on June 28, 2013, the byline was permanently removed, leaving the logo simple just like the pre-1994 logos. This logo is debuted in DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, and is the last logo of the company that used the name "Fox", before it was renamed as "20th Century Studios" in 2020.
This logo last appeared in the film Underwater, released on January 10, 2020, and made its surprise appearance in The Empty Man, released on October 23, 2020.
An enhanced variant of this logo exists, changes include an improved searchlight opening at the beginning, more detailed textures and a brighter than usual 'X' in 'FOX'. This variant was used in Blue Sky films and debuted in Ice Age: Collision Course. The final film to use this variant was Spies in Disguise. Only one non-Blue Sky film, Murder on the Orient Express, used this variant and as a closing logo was used for Terminator: Dark Fate.
20th Century Studios
Blue Sky Studios
A customized Gotham.
On January 17th, 2020, it was announced 20th Century Fox would change its name to 20th Century Studios, following Disney's purchase of the company's assets the year prior and likely to avoid confusion with the separate Fox Corporation. The opening sequence was similar to the 2016 enhanced version of the 2009 TCF logo, which was remained the same, except for the word “Fox” being replaced with the word "Studios", among the changes. The textures were also revised, giving the structure a more shiny look, the sky backdrop have now a different design, and Los Angeles landscapes has more details than the last logo. It was created by Picturemill, in collaboration with Blue Sky Studios. This new version was showcased on a TV Spot of The Call of the Wild and has debuted in the previously mentioned film on February 21, 2020. This logo is also used as the on-screen logo for 20th Century Studios' home media releases.
