fXM: Movies from Fox

(October 31, 1994-February 29, 2000)

Nickname: "FXM Structure"

Logo: We see a close-up of a orange 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". Sometimes, the trademark symbol is seen at the right.

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

Music/Sounds: A more orchestral and prestigious version of 20th Century Fox theme.

Availability: Extinct. Can be seen on FXM Dailies.

Editor's Note: None.

Fox Movie Channel

1st Logo (March 1, 2000-2007)

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

Logo: We see the regular 20th Century Fox structure on its side, but then the camera pans and it reveals that the wordmark is replaced by "FOX MOVIE CHANNEL" against an orange background. As the camera sits in its position, it brightens and the byline "MOVIES FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX" fades in below.

Variants:

  • Sometimes it lacks the byline.
  • A variant exists that was used as a bumper, which starts with the Twentieth Century Pictures logo, until it flashes to the version that succeeded it, and we go through most of the Fox logos that had been used up until that point. Then we see the FMC logo as usual.

FX/SFX: The camera panning and the searchlights moving.

Music/Sounds: The remixed version of the final notes of the 20th Century Fox fanfare.

Music/Sounds Variant: The variant had a synth drone sound, followed by the 1994 TCF fanfare.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (March 1, 2000-2006)

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

Logo: On a black background, we see the Fox Movie Channel logo with a byline reading "MOVIES FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX" surrounded by a box. Under it, we see the words "A Fox Movie Channel Production", and under it is a copyright notice.

FX/SFX: The searchlights moving and the logo shining.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

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

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (2006-2007)

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

Logo: We start on a side view of the Fox Movie Channel structure, apparently carved out of metal in a blue/white color, are seen, redone again in 3D. 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 Fox Movie Channel structure.

Music/Sounds: A synth whoosh with the last part of the Fox drumroll. In other cases, it usually uses the outro of the TV show.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (2007-March 26, 2013)

Nickname: "The Structure Strikes Back", "3-D Searchlights IV", "The Fox Movie Channel Structure IV"

Logo: Same as the 2006 Fox Movie Channel Productions logo, but the 2000 Fox Movie Channel structure is replaced by the 2007 Fox Movie Channel structure (the "FOX" is the biggest row, while the words "MOVIE CHANNEL" are a bit smaller).

Variant: 4:3 prints of this logo have blue bars above and below the logo.

FX/SFX: Same as the 2006 Fox Movie Channel Productions logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 2006 Fox Movie Channel Productions logo.

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

Editor's Note: None.

(March 27, 2013- )

Logo: On a dark background with many strips showing the FXM logo (which is the 2013 FX logo with an M attached to it) and the text "FX MOVIE CHANNEL", we rapidly zoom out to see the FXM logo on a few of the strips, at an angle. "PRODUCTIONS" is shown underneath it.
