round: Momentum Pictures was originally formed in the early 1990s as a British distribution company owned by Alliance Communications (and later on Alliance Atlantis and Alliance Films). The company quickly became known as one of the leading film distributors in the UK. In 2013, the company was folded into Entertainment One after their acquisition of Alliance, but in September 2015 it was relaunched as part of a venture between eOne and Orion Pictures.

Logo: On a blue background, we see many blurred blue/white shapes flying in from many directions, with occasional searchlights shining around them. Many of them have the blurred blue text "momentum" on them. Then, two rectangles, one a blue-outlined white one with "momentum" inside it, and a blue one with the 3D text "PICTURES" at the bottom of it, come in and join together.

FX/SFX: The moving objects, the searchlights, the parts forming the blue box.

Music/Sounds: Various whooshes, with a bang as the logo is formed.

Availability: Can be found on older British prints of movies on DVD and VHS.

Editor's Note:None.

2nd Logo

Logo: On a light navy blue background with some particles in the distance, multiple bluish white arcs quickly cross the screen, eventually rotating and zooming out into the white word "momentum", with "PICTURES" below it in blue. They are both in the same font as the last logo.

FX/SFX: The arcs spinning, the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth background with whirring as the arcs spin around and clinking sound effects as the text appears.

3rd Logo

Logo: On a black background, we see the Momentum logo, still in the same design as before but now in chrome, rotate in letter-by-letter. As the logo slowly eases to the right, the byline "an alliance films company" fades in underneath the finished product.
