Paramount early1914

The Paramount label first materialized in 1914 during its early years as a distribution company. Paramount would become a wholly owned division of Famous Players by around 1916.


In this period, Paramount's logo began to consist of a mountain peak, a field of stars, and the name of the company in script font - a format which has since been passed on to all subsequent logo designs.

Paramount 100 years

When Paramount marked its 100th Anniversary dating back to its inception, their on screen and print logo was heavily updated, using a new look for the mountain, and switching the background back to daytime. This logo was first revealed in print on the 3D re-release of Titanic in November 2011. It made its first on-screen appearance on December 16, 2011 in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The "100 years" text was dropped on December 21, 2012 and the very first movie to use the simple version was Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters which launched January 25, 2013 in the U.S. However this print logo was abandoned from usage sometime in 2012, and replaced with the previous logo.
