1997-2000Bumper: We start off with a white flash, which zooms out to reveal 4 gold/white filmstrips rotating on a dark gray background. Then, "VIDEO", "RELEASES", "TO", and "RENT" in a red Helvetica font also zoom into the bottom. Once the words have finished zooming, a gold light zooms into the camera that turns into a splash of light, which fades onto a dark grey background with a gold TV set and inside the set are
"TO" and "RENT"
floating. Then, the bordered circle zooms out transitioning to black.
Variant: Sometimes, "RENT" is replaced by "BUY" and the words are in a green Helvetica font and the bordered circle zooms in transitioning to black.
FX/SFX: CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: A dramatic synth like action theme, complete with whooshes once the words zoom in, which ends with a deep THX like chord and more whooshes.
Availability: Seen on 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, later Guild Home Video and Pathé releases in the UK, such as James and the Giant Peach, The Blair Witch Project, Speed 2: Cruise Control, The X Files: One Son and The Fifth Element (1998 Rental Release).
Scare Factor: Medium to high, due to the fast pace of the bumper and the music, which is not likely to fit too well with people, especially for those who hate the THX logo.
