fXM: Movies from Fox

(October 31, 1994-February 29, 2000)

Nickname: "FXM Structure"

Logo: We see some close-ups of a circular stage-like 3-D structure with the FX logo on one side: a giant "M" is on the other. Then we zoom out to reveal that the bottom of the structure says "MOVIES FROM FOX".

Variants: There were other variants where the structure was in a different color, depending on the genre of the following film:

  • Green: Comedy
  • Blue: Musical
  • Purple: Drama
  • Gray: Action
  • Red: Romance
  • Orange: Best of

FX/SFX: The close-ups of the structure and the searchlights moving. This was done by Hatmaker Films in Boston, MA.

Music/Sounds: Depends on the variant, but generally a remix of the Cinemascope version of the 20th Century Fox theme.

  • Comedy: A cartoony, kazoo version of the fanfare with other cartoon sound effects.
  • Musical: A jazzy and upbeat, big band version of the fanfare.
  • Drama: A suspenseful, mysterious-sounding version of the fanfare using woodwing stings.
  • Action: A dramatic version of the fanfare.
  • Romance: A slower-paced, romantic version of the fanfare using violins.
  • Best of: A more orchestral and prestigious version of the fanfare.

Availability: Extinct.

Fox Movie Channel

1st Logo (March 1, 2000-2008)

Nicknames: "3-D Searchlights", "The Fox Movie Channel Structure"

Logo: On a black background, we see the Fox Movie Channel logo (a variation of the 20th Century Fox structure set against an orange background with "FOX MOVIE CHANNEL" replacing "20th CENTURY FOX") surrounded by a box, with the News Corporation byline at the bottom. Under it, we see the words "A Fox Movie Channel Production", and under it is a copyright notice.

FX/SFX: None

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Extinct. Can be seen on Hour of Stars.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2008-March 26, 2013)

Nickname: "The Structure Strikes Back"

Logo: We start on a side view of the 2007 Fox Movie Channel structure, apparently carved out of metal in a blue/white color, are seen, redone again in 3D. The "FOX" is the biggest row, while the words "MOVIE CHANNEL" are a bit smaller. We zoom out from the logo to make the camera panning. We also see searchlights which are seen as the camera pans around the structure. "PRODUCTIONS" reveals at the bottom of the screen.

FX/SFX: The zoom out of the camera around the 2007 Fox Movie Channel structure.

Music/Sounds: The remixed version of the final notes of the 20th Century Fox fanfare. In other cases, it usually uses the outro of the TV show.

Availability: No longer current, as Fox Movie Channel has rebranded as FX Movie Channel in 2013.

Editor's Note: None.
