Centennial Universal Opening Logo! [Video]

In honor of their centennial, Universal has released a new opening logo that looks pretty cool, if you ask me. The letters seem more akin to alien spaceships than anything else. I find it interesting that this globe is lit up by the life below, rather than being the typical, “day-time” globe of the past. Is this meant to reflect our evolving culture, one of no bed-times, of electronic interconnectivity? Or is it just, you know, something different? I think it’s interesting.

  1. Woah! That was really well done. I loved that transition from wide side of the earth to the other. Even the letters were really dynamic. I think the last time I went "oooooh!" at one of these was when Disney changed it's opening logo.

  2. Wow, that was kind of epic. Bravo.

    The only downside is that now I don't get to say the MST3K line "It's the best weather the Earth has ever seen!" every time I see the Universal logo. That was one of my favourite overused jokes. :(

  3. using lights from cities cause its dark side of earth, can tell cause sunlite is on back side…i would say no other reason except for that and it was there and they could do it lol…like it though..looks sharp

  4. Did you realise that each of the first 3 letters catch the light at 0:14 to 0:16 timed to the music? ;)
    At 0:07 there's a burst of flare at the edge of the letters coming out, also timed to the music.
    AT 0:09 too, the sun has a tiny burst of flare, just done to match the timing of the music.
    Really nicely timed and done. My observations geeky enough? haha!

  5. Hmm. I have to disagree with the alien spaceship description. To my eye, they really are just big, fancy
    letters flying through space. No alieness at all. Well done, but no hint of being alien.
