Alliance Films (Canada)

From CLG Wiki

Logo descriptions and captures by V of Doom and EnormousRat

Background: After the collapse of Alliance Atlantis in 2007, the movie distribution arm was re-launched as Alliance Films. On January 9, 2013, Entertainment One acquired and folded Alliance Films.

1st Logo (August 10, 2007-January 11, 2013)


Nicknames: "Blue A", "Alliance A", "Alliance Hero", "The Alliance Films Boomerang"

Logo: Same as the last and final Alliance Atlantis logo, but the coloring is light blue instead of orange and the name only appears as "ALLIANCE" in white instead of gold, but in a different font. An tiny, registered mark symbol appears a bit at the top right side corner next beside to the company name.

Variants:

  • For Quebec releases, the word "VIVAFILM" is added below.
  • Another variant has the same font from the last three Alliance Atlantis logos, with no registered mark at all.

FX/SFX: Same as the last and final Alliance Atlantis logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the last and final Alliance Atlantis logo. Sometimes, the music is re-arranged to be less dramatic and calmer.

Availability: Appears on Canadian-released movies and distributed DVDs/Blu-Rays from 2007 to 2012. This surprisingly appears on the U.S. Sony Blu-ray of Planet 51 instead of the TriStar logo if you select the French audio track, or press the "angle" button on the player's remote.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (August 31, 2012-April 26, 2013)


Nicknames: "Fireworks", "Alliance A II", "Alliance Hero II"

Logo: A spark lights up on a dark background, which causes other sparks to light up and shoot fireworks across the screen. We then zoom out to see that the fireworks are drawing the familiar Alliance logo. "ALLIANCE FILMS" in Century Gothic Bold in gold (exactly the same font color just like from the 2004-2007 Alliance Atlantis logo) then zooms out and takes its place below the Alliance logo.

Trivia: This logo was designed by Framework Studio.

Variant: Again, in Quebec, "VIVAFILM" is in place of "FILMS".

FX/SFX: The logo forming. Very nice special effects.

Music/Sounds: The fireworks and the same majestic horn fanfare as before.

Availability: This appears on The Tall Man, Sinister, The Bay, Dark Skies, and The Lords of Salem.

Editor's Note: None.
