Paramount Pictures is celebrating their 100th Anniversary in entertainment with a brand new logo. The new logo can be seen on the new action film starring Tom Cruise, “Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol.” The movie will open in IMAX and on other premium large format screens on Friday, December 16th and in theaters everywhere on December 21st.

The studio’s original logo, which featured a rugged, snow-covered peak from the Wasatch mountain range, was created in 1916. The 100th Anniversary logo was created by Devastudios, Inc.

Paramount will use the logo throughout its centennial year in 2012. In 2013, however, the wording concerning the anniversary will be removed from the logo. The rest of the design remaining in use for future films.

You can view the new logo below the post.

Paramount Studios, the only major studio still located in Hollywood, will celebrate its 100th year in show business in 2012. Adolph Zukor, Jesse L. Lasky and Cecil B. DeMille are credited as Paramount’s principle founders; “Queen Elizabeth”, made in 1912, was the studio’s first feature film. Congratulations, Paramount on remaining a fixture in entertainment and in Hollywood!
