Logo: We start by seeing a thick white line surrounded by a red circle. The circle moves revealing smaller circles with a different colour. As the circles disappear, the white line turns right, revealing a huge and detailed compass drawing with the numbers "1492" in it. The camera then zooms out in a box as the compass spins a few times around and disappears while the numbers "1492" remain in the background, which is a landscape of an ocean and clouds. The word "PICTURES" is seen below and in spaced-out letters to fit the width of the box. The waves move in the logo after it is completely formed.

Variant: At the end of The Help, the logo is still.

: Impressive animation.

Music/Sounds: A very dramatic and heroic orchestral fanfare, composed by Hans Zimmer. None for the still version.

Availability: Common. Seen on Nine Months, Rent, Christmas With The Kranks, Jingle All the Way, Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Night at the Museum and its sequel, Night at the Museum: Battle of The Smithsonian, among others. This however doesn't appear on any of the eight Harry Potter films.

Scare Factor: Low.
