1st Logo

(January 18, 2008-December 21, 2011)

Logo: This is like the TV version, except the grass is higher, without a voice at the end of the logo. In a box containing a field of grass against a foggy sky, which is situated against a black background, the camera pans through the field. Suddenly, a silhouette darts back-and-forth across the screen. The robot, now done in CGI, appears in front of us with its body obscured by grass. The picture turns into a drawing and "BAD ROBOT" in the same font as the TV logo, fades in below the box.
Variants:

  • On Cloverfield, the logo is considerably brighter.
  • Starting with Morning Glory, the fog is replaced by an evening sky with more realistic-looking clouds, and the robot looks smoother.
    FX/SFX: The robot moving and the turning into a 2-D drawing.
    Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie or silence.
    Availability: Seen on Cloverfield, Morning Glory, Star Trek, Super 8, and Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol.

2nd Logo

(May 16, 2013-)

Logo: Same concept as the first logo, but redone. Here, the camera moves through some tall grass to reveal a more detailed field and sky (unlike the previous logo, this takes up the whole frame instead of being boxed in). The robot makes its entrance and the picture zooms out against a black background. The end result is similar to before except when the picture turns into a drawing, the robot blinks.

FX/SFX: Same as the first logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the first logo. On both Star Wars films, we hear some atmospheric noises (grass rustling, wind blowing, birds chirping, etc.), and at the end, the two kids saying "Bad Robot," as in its television counterpart.

Availability: Current. Seen on Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (after the credits), 10 Cloverfield Lane, Star Trek Beyond, Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (also after the credits).

Editor's Note: None.
