Logo capture by Eric S.

1st Logo
(Mid 1980's-Early 1990's)

Nicknames: "Explosion in Space", "MV of Explosion", "Did Something Burst Up?", "3-G Home Video's Louder Italian Brother"

Logo: Against a moving blue space background, an explosion occurs. A segmented trapezoid flips into place, which looks like an "MV" formed by three lines and an upside-down triangle, while "MULTIVISION" flips horizontally. Both parts of the logo slide off-screen to the right ("Multivision" coming a few seconds after the trapezoid does), and "presenta" wipes in. Seconds later, it too, slides to the right, and we cut to black.

FX/SFX: The explosion (which seems to be live-action), the trapezoid, and the text flipping into place.

Music/Sounds: A loud explosion sound.

Availability: Mainly seen on Italian PAL releases of Cannon movies, but it's on other releases too.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(Early 1990's-present)

Nicknames: "The Rainbow Triangle"

Logo: TBA.

FX/SFX: TBA.For the silent variant, it plays slower and presents is absent and the logo fades out earlier.

Music/Sounds: A synth fanfare with synth percussion and descending and ascending synth chimes, all ending bombastic and powerful. Also at the beginning, you can hear a high-pitched synth chime echoing. Otherwise, none.

Availability: Seen on Italian PAL releases.

Editor's Note: None.
