Vanguard Films was formed in 1982. It was headed by Simon Ongpin and Charo Santos-Concio.
Vision Films, Inc.
Four years prior to Star Cinema's foundation, the driving forces of ABS-CBN including Charo Santos-Concio founded Vision Films in 1989 and it was operated independently from the network and Regal Films.
The logos of this incarnation, however, were depended on the variations used in their films until its dissolution in May 1993 when it was absorbed into the present-day Star Cinema.
The logo variation from the Kapag Langit ang Humatol (1990) was used instead in the posters of the restored versions of the company's films which were released by the successor.

Star Cinema (second era)
After 14 years of having used the same design, Star Cinema gave its "shooting star" logo a major revamp. The trail of the star became more rounded, the star became more slanted and was placed to the head of the gold trail, and the "Star Cinema" text started using the Gotham font for its typeface. The "ABS-CBN" word mark and the "Film Productions, Inc." text, meanwhile, were dropped in favor of using the text "An ABS-CBN Company" (with ABS-CBN on its 2014 horizontal logo). Onscreen, the Star Cinema text uses the Akzidenz-Grotesk font for its typeface. Despite that the "Film Productions, Inc." was dropped from the logo, the corporate name ABS-CBN Film Productions, Inc. is still used until today.
The onscreen version of the logo debuted in 2014 in two movies: "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin" and "Feng Shui 2", both of which were Star Cinema's entrees in the 40th Metro Manila Film Festival.
For the studio's 25th anniversary in 2018, the trademark shooting star logo was now replaced with the logo of a golden star and three RGB-colored rings (which are also used as the colors of the ABS-CBN logo).
