Not to be confused with Atlas Film or Atlas International.

Background[]

Atlas Entertainment is the production company of Charles Roven. It was originally formed in 1995 from the merger of Roven and Bob Cavallo's previous company and Steel Pictures, owned by Roven's wife Dawn Steel. In 1999, after Cavallo left the company to join Walt Disney Studios and Steel's death, Atlas was merged with Gold/Miller Management to create Mosaic Media Group. In 2008, Roven split off his ties from Mosaic, and relaunched Atlas Entertainment with a first-look deal at Sony Pictures.

2nd Logo (February 13, 2009-)[]

Logo: We see a gleaming image of a rotating globus, depicting Earth in ancient scripts. Shreds of white steam pass around as the camera zooms out, and the globus turns glowing white. It lies on the shoulders of a man, a reference to the Greek mythological figure Atlas. The silver words "ATLAS ENTERTAINMENT" are seen below in Relief font.

Variants:

  • At the beginning of American Hustle, the logo is given a 1970s retro look to correspond with the movie's time period.

Atlas Entertainment 2019

Logo: On a space background, we see a globe emitting a blue aura. We pan down to reveal a man (this one more closely resembling the Greek Titan Atlas) once again holding up the globe. As the camera zooms out, and unlike the last logo, the man manages to lift the globe up above him with one arm. The words "ATLAS" in a Trajan font and "ENTERTAINMENT" in an Avenir Next font zoom out below.

Variants:

  • On Wonder Woman 1984, the logo is shortened.
  • A sped-up version of this logo exists.
