Silver 10

Nicknames: The Square, The CGI Chip, The Chip

Logo: On a black background with sliver "water" below, a 3D silver object emerges from the "water", slowly, with the "water" rippling as it rises. After it's uncovered, the camera zooms back quickly, revealing that the 3D object is a chip with "SILVER PICTURES" coming from below, the letters separated from each other.

Variant: On the film Ricochet, a very dark blue spotlight is behind the logo. Kinda looks like the television logo on Parker Kane, but not much.

FX/SFX: The chip rising, the camera zooming so fast, the letters appearing.

Music/Sounds: An orchestral fanfare composed by Michael Kamen (who also did the music for the 1991 Morgan Creek and 1994 New Line Cinema logos) that ends with 9 orchestral hits.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  1. On Ricochet, the theme is more majestic sounding.
  2. On the soundtrack of Ricochet composed by Alan Silvestri, an unused fanfare with harps used throughout is one of the tracks. This was intended to be the standard fanfare for the logo, much like the Touchstone Pictures logo on Signs.

Availability: Can be seen on films from Silver Pictures of that period, such as Swordfish, The Matrix trilogy, Demolition Man, The Last Boy Scout, Ricochet, Richie Rich, and Executive Decision. Oddly, Lethal Weapon 3 and Lethal Weapon 4 do not have this logo.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The hits can get someone.


Silver 17

Nickname: The CGI Brick

Logo: We start by seeing silver angles, light and a small square. The camera then zooms out a little and goes down from the gap of a new, CGI-stylished brick. The brick turn towards the black background and the words "SILVER PICTURES" zoom from down to below the brick.

Variant: The logo is usually seen without the words "SILVER PICTURES". This is seen on films like The Invasion, Fred Claus, Ninja Assassin, and Sherlock Holmes.

FX/SFX: The neat animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: Usually without music, but the music from the film may play during the logo.

Availability: Appears on films like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Invasion, and V for Vendetta among others.

Scare Factor: Minimal.
