The Weinstein Company
Nickname: The Three Bottom Lights
Logo: On a black background, we see two lights from the bottom morph or form three lights from one light on top, forming an abstract "W". While that happens, we see text "THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY" (in Engravers Gothic font) at the bottom of the three lights. Afterwards, the lights disappear one at a time with Weinstein text fading last.
- Some films' closing credits have the logo in a weirdly-edited variation with plain text.
- Some trailers and films such as Make It Happen, Bobby, and Silver Linings Playbook have "TWC" instead of the company name.
FX/SFX: The lights.
Music/Sounds: A orchestrated piece composed by Nicole Weinstein (daughter of Bob Weinstein) that fades out when the logo fades. On Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight (both directed by Quentin Tarantino), a different piece with light switch sounds is heard, is silent, or has the opening theme to the film.
Availability: Common. Appears on all films from the company from Derailed to Tulip Fever. It also appears on the infamous Netflix film Leo the Lion. Don't expect that to appear on Space Chimps as that uses an in credit notice. Following the Weinstein scandal, the company didn't release a single movie, and after the sale of its assets, that logo has been retired. It may gradually become rarer and rarer as a direct result of the scandal.
Editor's Note: Putting aside the Weinstein scandal, that is just a simple logo with a nice theme and a bland concept.
Logo: We start with a yellow flash and the camera zooms out to reveal a glowing box over a river. The camera turns as the rectangle glows even more. As the camera pans across, we see the rectangle is a stylised "LE", with the stacked text "LANTERN ENTERTAINMENT".
FX/SFX: Nice CGI.
Music/Sounds: Two piano notes, a swirling ambient section, and then three more piano notes, all combined with ocean wave sounds.
Availability: Current. It was first spotted on a Disney Channel broadcast of Paddington, preceding the TWC-Dimension logo. It is expected to make its theatrical debut on The Upside, and may be seen at the start of newer prints of TWC movies.
Editor's Note: A nicely-animated follow-up to the last logo.
