1st Logo
(1997)
[]

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Only used on the video game version of Independence Day..

2nd Logo
(May 20, 1998-March 7, 2008)
[]

Logo: The camera slides by the side of a flying zeppelin, which heads towards a large city at the horizon. Two more zeppelins float above, while a plane flies by the camera. Searchlights beam from the city. The city is then outlined into a rectangle, and the words, "CENTROPOLIS ENTERTAINMENT" with "ENTERTAINMENT" under "CENTROPOLIS", zoom in below the picture.

Variant: On the trailer for The Patriot, the picture was grayscale and the green color in the name is more mild.

FX/SFX: The animation of flying transports and lights.

Music/Sounds: An orchestral fanfare with the sounds of transport motors passing by.

Availability: Common. It can be seen on films like GodzillaThe Thirteenth FloorThe Patriot, and 10,000 BC. This doesn't appear on The Day After Tomorrow, and after 10,000 BC the logo was fully retired.

3rd Logo
(June 23rd, 2016-)
[]

Logo: The logo animates like the previous logo concept, but the differences were the color is tinted gold and one plane toward us is different. "C E N T R O P O L I S" fades and turns in a usual, but in the different font. After the while, the picture zooms out to be enclosed in the black background, while "C E N T R O P O L I S" spleads in to fit the length of "E N T E R T A I N M E N T" (Also in a different font), which fades in. 

FX/SFX: The animation is still great-looking, but it seems that they didn't make much of an improvement.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme.

Availability: Current. First used on Independence Day: Resurgence.
