Background: Ghost Corps was founded within Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2015 as a brand of Columbia Pictures to expand the Ghostbusters franchise. Among its founders were Ivan Reitman (director of the original 1984 film Ghostbusters) and Dan Aykroyd (actor who played Ray Stantz in 1984's Ghostbusters and 1989's Ghostbusters II).

(July 15th, 2016-present)

Logo: On an animated dark thunderstorm, the words "GHOST CORPS" (consists of the words, with "GH ST" in white & "CORPS" in red with the red "No" symbol as the "O" in "GHOST", stacked together in a style of the opening title of the 1984 original, Ghostbusters) revealed by zooming forward. The traditionally animated ghost flies in from the left and moves to the symbol, which becomes the Ghostbusters symbol. The byline "A COLUMBIA PICTURES COMPANY" (in the length of the logo) fades in underneath it.

Variants:

  • The extended version have the proper logo formation in the form of the franchise's gadgetical elements.
  • On Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the logo is superimposed in the different thunderstorm, that was carried from the preceeding Bron Creative logo. Also, the blue electrical bolts is absent. The logo fades out, to have the opening titles before the prologue to display.

FX/SFX: CGI for the thunderstorm & bolts, and traditional animation for the ghost.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme.

Availability: The normal version is only seen on Ghostbusters (2016).

Editor's Note: None.
