Best Film Studio Logo Intros

Nothing quite like a good film studio/distributor logo intro to kickstart a movie. It gives you a lot of faith and assurance in the film's production and workmanship, especially with heavy-hitting companies behind it. Their presentations are almost like another separate artform themselves. It's great seeing their evolution from modest beginnings before becoming the grandiose spectacles that they are today.

Will add more later.
