Background: Golden Princess Film Productions was a Hong Kong production company and film distributor. It produced several acclaimed films including The Killer, Peking Opera Blues, and Full Contact.

1st Logo

Logo: On an orange background, we see a GP design, which consists of a mirrored P design with the left side having a G and a triangle cutout on the top and we zoom out from it, revealing more GP designs. Then, a giant, golden GP flips and zooms out to its position. Finally, "GOLDEN PRINCESS FILM PRODUCTION LIMITED", in Cantonese and English appears (via the flash).

FX/SFX: The zoom-outs, and the flash.

Music/Sounds: A uninspired but triumphant fanfare.

Availability: Extremely rare. So far, this only seen on the trailer of Roboforce (AKA I Love Maria).

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Logo: On a gold liquid wall, a mirrored "GP" structure rises from the background and zooms forward . The flying structure leaves a trail and then zooms backwards while we see blue filmstrip floors slide upwards. Then the filmstrip background stops, and the "GP" zooms upwards along with the words "GOLDEN PRINCESS FILM PRODUCTION LIMITED" in Cantonese and English.

FX/SFX: The liquid background wavering, the structure hovering and zooming, the moving filmstrip floors, and the zooming text.

Music/Sounds: A majestic synth fanfare ending with a dramatic (and quite unfitting) two-note sting.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the English track on the Dragon Dynasty DVD and BD of The Killer, and the French releases of A Chinese Ghost Story II and III, it uses the fanfare from the 2nd Cinema City Co. logo! This could be due to a sloppy reverse-plastering job.
  • On the Columbia-TriStar Home Entertainment DVD of Once A Thief, it is silent.

: Uncommon. Seen on more popular HK action titles such as the critically acclaimed HK classics The Killer and Hard Boiled. This can also be seen on Once A Thief, Treasure Hunt, Full Contact, A Chinese Ghost Story II and III, along with The
Swordsman I, II, and III, and several other films. The last film to feature this logo was Peace Hotel. This is sometimes removed or plastered over with the Media Asia logos, but is usually preceded with other companies' indents on their prints.

Editor's Note: None.
