Background: Nu Image Films is a genre and low-to-mid budget film production and distribution company started in 1992 by Avi Lerner. It also launched a subsidiary, Millennium Films, which handled most new releases from Nu Image and First Look Studios.

1st Logo
Nicknames: "Trailing Nu Image", "Two Logos In One"

Logo: On a black background, several blue lines rise from the screen and return to feature the words "N U--I M A G E" with barely-visible dark blue trails, which stand on a surface with a reflection. Then the logo fades to a twisted filmstrip on a blue spotlight with the words "NU IMAGE" with both parts of the word on opposite sides.

Variant: A short variant was spotted on The Peacekeeper.

FX/SFX: The movement of lines, fading to the other logo.

Music/Sounds: An odd windy sound followed with a clang, ending in a synth theme. Sometimes, it's the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Hard Justice, the Cyborg Cop trilogy, Danger Zone, and Freefall, among others.

2nd Logo
Nu Image

Nicknames: "Trailing Nu Image II", "Silver Nu Image"

Logo: On a black background, the black words "N U--I M A G E" rapidly zoom, leaving endless light blue trails, and the light streak colors the silver letters. The logo shines and zooms on, leaving the screen.

FX/SFX: The streak passing by.

Music/Sounds: A hissing sound when the logo zooms, and a loud laser-like swoosh when the streak appears. Then it's followed by a strange wiggling orchestral fanfare with a dramatic end. Also, humming is present.

Music/Sounds Trivia: The 2nd half of the normal fanfare can be heard at the beginning of the South Park episode "Free Willzyx" (season 9).

Music/Sounds Variant: On some films, a loud, dramatic drumroll fanfare is heard.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on Shark Attack 2, the infamous Shark Attack 3: Megalodon and Ticker, among others.
