100th Anniversary Universal Logo

As part of their 100th anniversary celebrations, Universal Pictures has just released a new animated version of their famous globe logo with the film The Lorax. Created by the digital wizards at Weta Digital (Lord of the Rings dudes), the new presentation has much more weight and grandeur to it and includes new music and real satellite imagery of the planet from both day and night. Very nice!

Here's a video some of the variations over the years with the new one at the end.

(Nice to see Moncton light up brightly on the map!)
