Paramount Players is a division of Paramount Pictures founded in 2017 by studio CEO Jim Gianopulos, specializing in films based on "contemporary properties".
(November 2, 2018-)
Logo: Same as the current Paramount Pictures logo, but near the end, the stars and text encircle the mountain peak higher than usual and all turn metallic. As this happens, the background turns dark gradient blue and the abstract mountain design from the print logo appears as the word "PLAYERS" fades in between the tip of the mountain and "Paramount".
Later Variant: The logo was slightly reanimated in 2019, which now has the abstract mountain drawing itself in subtly instead of simply fading in, and the shine on the left corner of the "P" in "Paramount" fades in quicker and also fades out.
FX/SFX: This is pretty much a modified version of the 2011 Paramount logo by Devastudios, with influence from the 1975 logo.
Music/Sounds: The 2012 Paramount Pictures fanfare.
- On Dora and the Lost City of Gold, whooshes are heard when the stars fly by and some water sounds are heard when they skim across the lake.
- Sometimes, the logo is silent, or the film's opening theme is heard instead.
Availability: Current. So far, seen on Nobody's Fool, What Men Want, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and Playing with Fire. It is expected to appear on future films from the division.
Editor's Note: This is a neat callback to the 1975 logo, which also featured a realistic mountain turning into an abstract version.
