21st Century Fox

As News Corp splits off the entertainment division into it's own company the new name will be 21st Century Fox. The Iconic movie studio will keep the 20th Century Fox Name.

I was just about to post this.

It's nice that, twelve years later, they're finally acknowledging what century we're in. On the other hand, I'd hoped that all they would change was the number, from "20th" to "21st". The 20th Century-Fox fanfare and searchlights are iconic. They are powerful. They are one of the few "old-fashioned" logos that does not need a complete makeover.

This thing is pallid by comparison. The symbol is vaguely reminiscent of The X Files' logo, but that's all it's got going for it.

The logo looks like some minimalist version of the Batman Signal...

They thought about changing the movie studio in 200 to 21st Century but decided that the name was too iconic to mess with. 21st Century Fox is a whole new parent company and the studios will keep the old logo. They are splitting away from News Corp.

Don't worry. You'll hardly notice this logo used anywhere consumers are. This is strictly a parent-company logo, designed primarily for business to business use. They can make it as ugly as they want. (: It is akin to the Universal/NBC mash up logo.
