Background: Regency Enterprises is a Los Angeles-based motion picture production company formed by Arnon Milchan and Joseph P. Grace. It was founded in 1982 as Embassy International Pictures, but the company name changed to avoid confusion with Norman Lear and Jerry Perenchio's Embassy Pictures' global division Embassy Pictures International. Its films were distributed by Warner Bros. until 1998, and by 20th Century Fox (later under Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures) from 1999 onward (with some released by Columbia Pictures and Paramount Pictures) and with the distribution deal, Fox bought a 20% stake in the company.

1st Logo
(July 20, 1994-December 25, 2015)
Regency Enterprises (1994)
<iframe frameborder="0" height="202" src="" width="357"></iframe>

Nicknames: "Northern Lights", "R2", "The Haze", "Renegade R", "The Powerade Logo", "S in Reverse"

Logo: Over a black background, a light draws a stylized blue "R". As we pan out, the glowing from the "R" stops, and "REGENCY" turns toward us under the "R". The logo shines.

Variant: Starting with 12 Years a Slave, the logo has an enhanced look where the light is purple, and the "R" and "REGENCY" text are a lighter shade of blue.

FX/SFX: The light effects. Good animation.

Music/Sounds: Originally it was silent, but starting with Bogus in 1996, a mystical orchestral tune with a flute is heard. The music was composed and written by Danny Elfman, and is a truncated sample of the
main title theme from the 1993 film Sommersby, which was a Regency production; there is also a faint whoosh as the "R" is drawn, as well as some cymbal crashes as the logo shines.

Availability: Common. It's seen on any film produced by Regency from 1994 to 2015. Also appeared on licensed games, such as Fight Club. This logo first appeared on The Client, while it made its final appearance on The Revenant.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(November 10, 2016-)

Nicknames: "R2 II", "The Powerade Logo II", "Silver R", "S in Reverse II"

Logo: We see the top of the R forming and it zooms down showing both the rest of the top and the bottom form and the logo zooms out to show the R, similar to the last logo, but silver color fills in, and on an aquamarine background, the text "REGENСY" in Blair appears from right to left in the same color.

FX/SFX: Amazing CGI!

Music/Sounds: Like before, originally none or the opening theme of the movie, but starting with Little Women (2019) the fanfare from the previous logo is heard.

Availability: First appeared on the trailer for the film adaptation of Assassin's Creed. The fully animated version debuted on Rules Don't Apply.

Editor's Note: A great update to the previous logo, which pairs even better with the 1996 theme.
