The Weinstein Company Home Entertainment
The Weinstein Company Home Entertainment was formed by The Weinstein Company to release their films on DVD. From 2005 to 2009, their releases were distributed by Genius Products, whose assets were later sold to Vivendi Entertainment in 2009 after their bankruptcy. From 2009 to 2010, Vivendi Entertainment distributed TWC releases. In February 2010, The Weinstein Company made a deal with Sony Pictures to release their DVDs and Blu-rays through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. However, after The Weinstein Company bought a 25% stake in Starz Distribution in January 2011, their DVD and Blu-ray releases starting from April were distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The company was absorbed into Lantern Entertainment in 2018.
1st and Only Logo (2005-2017)
This description is missing images or videos.
Nickname: "The Three Bottom Lights"
Logo: Against a black background, a bluish light forms, and three bluish triangles come in from the top, bottom left, and bottom right, joining together in the middle to form the Weinstein Company logo. "THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY" in Chisel Thin Wide, a line, and "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" in Trajan Pro appears below. The light then returns and the text segue into obscurity as the 3 triangles go out of sight. In other cases, the words "COMING SOON TO THEATERS", "COMING SOON TO DVD"or "NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD" zoom out letter-by-letter.
FX/SFX: The triangles forming the company logo, in CGI massively improved over its parent logo.
Music/Sounds: Same as the movie logo with whooshes at the end. On some releases like Doogal, a synthesized version of the fanfare is used.
Availability: Common. Appears on many Weinstein Company DVDs distributed by Genius, Vivendi, Sony, and Anchor Bay. Does not appear on their DVD and Blu-ray release of Leap! (a.k.a. Ballerina), which only used the Lionsgate logo, likely as a consequence of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Editor's Note: More effort was put into this logo than the movie counterpart.
