Background: Saturn Films is a production company owned by Nicholas Cage.

1st Logo (May 15, 2000)

Logo: On a black background, a yellow model of Saturn zooms in, while one ring swirls around it. Before it stops, the company name appears below it, also in yellow. Then the logo fades out.

FX/SFX: The moving planet and the ring.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic choir tune.

Availability: Only seen on Shadow of the Vampire.

2nd Logo (December 22, 2000- )

Logo: A blue ring, which looks like a recording disc, zooms in, as does a planet with a camera ring atop it. The structure stands into usual position, then multiple words SATURN slide from right, forming the company name with FILMS in smaller font below.

Variants: 

  • At the beginning of Next, after the logo forms it reverses. It starts out fast, then slows down. In time with the ticking of the clock, it flashes into the gold-inverted still shots before fading out on the third.
  • On Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, a still print version was used.
  • On The Life of David Gale, the logo is in black and white.

FX/SFX: The whole animation of the planet, the rings moving, the name sliding.

Music/Sounds: We start off with a metallic clang, then a higher-pitched version, then an electronic whirring sound with some whooshes held out till the end of the logo.

Availability: Common. Seen on every film produced by Saturn, starting with The Family Man.
