THXThis is a featured page

Background: THX is the name of a real motion picture quality certification system. Real logos are found here.

15th Trailer
(2009-2011)
THX (2010)
Logo: On a blue aurora, the words "The Audience is Listening" fade in. They then fade out. After that, the THX logo in metallic 3D zooms in. When it does, it then spins around and a blue box is drawn, centering the logo. Finally, the words "THX LTD." appear above the logo and "SOUND SYSTEM" appears below. Some light blue streaks come out of the logo.

FX/SFX: Superb CGI for the 2010s.

Music/Sounds: A remastered, enhanced, and less scary version of the Deep Note theme.

Availability: Seen on THX theaters since 2009-2011.

Scare Factor: Low to Medium, but it would get a bit worse on the next trailer!



16th Trailer
(2010-)

Nicknames: "Descriptive (of Doom)", "Painting Pictures with Words (of Doom)"

Logo: Shot in black and white, we see the THX studios. We zoom into the door, and we see the rooms of the studios. The camera pans through until we get to the THX cinema, then into the screen, fading to the filming of the THX trailers, and many THX logos from the previous trailers. A fire appears, which burns the entire screen, which changes to the THX logo. "The Audience is Listening" is under it. Everything seems to be covered with words.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Cheesy Factor: Extremely cheesy.

Music/Sounds: A set of music and sounds, and at the end the same Deep Note as the 15th Trailer plays.

Availability: Seen on THX theaters since 2010, and is used in tandem with the 15th Trailer until 2011.

Scare Factor: Medium to nightmare, some may be scared by the Deep Note, especially if you have THXphobia.



17th Trailer
(September 7, 2010-)

Nicknames: "Green to Red", "THX Standby"

Logo: On a green background, an outline of the THX logo appears, with "THX LTD." and "SOUND SYSTEM" above and below the logo in white, respectively. A few seconds later, the background turns red. A second or two later, the THX logo slowly changes to red.

FX/SFX: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A faint buzzing sound, then a click, and the Deep Note.

Availability: Seen on THX theaters since 2010.

Scare Factor: Low to medium, this one is much tame.



18th Trailer
(2011-)

Nicknames: "Can You Feel It?", "Something That Won't Scare Your Kids"

Logo: On a white BG, we see a thick shiny black circular outline. What seems to be a child's hand touches the middle of the circle and turns the outline's color to electric green. The outline and the hand then dissapear. In it's place is a THX logo with the slogan "So realistic you can feel it" in a futuristic font with a www.thx.com URL below the slogan, which the color of the text and logo is electric green.

FX/SFX: All live action.

Music/Sounds: Just a press of of a button. On G-rated THX Certified movies from 2011 onward, a child laughing is heard when the logo appears.

Avalibility: Plasters older trailers on re-releases of THX Certified movies and seen in some THX Certified theaters, and on most THX Certified DVDs, and Blu-rays since 2011. This logo is a part of THX's "Can You Feel It?" campaign; this logo's role in it is to help people who have THXphobia not get scared when they see a THX Certified film.

Scare Factor: None, unless you don't like sudden color changes.



19th Trailer
(2011-)

Nicknames: "Calvacade 2011", "Calvacade 2", "Can You Feel It? 2"

Logo: On a white BG, we see a blue ball floating in midair. All of a sudden, the ball starts bouncing and starts turning the BG blue. All of a sudden, the ball starts to glow and then explodes. We then zoom out to see a blue colored THX logo on a white BG. "Can You Feel It?" fades in below along with a www.thx.com URL.

FX/SFX: Very well done animation by the guys at Warner Bros. Animation.

Music/Sounds: The ball bouncing and exploding, a whoosh sound as we zoom out, and another whoosh sound as the text fades in.

Avalibility: Same as the 18th trailer.

Scare Factor: None, unless you don't like explosions.



20th Trailer
(2011-)


Nicknames: "Secret & Morocco", "Tex 4", "Tex in 2D", "Tex Still Strikes", "Tex & Friends"

Logo: The THX logo starts up like any other, but the logo is in 2D and suddenly flickers. Then the logo turns off and we "zoom in" to show that a broken electric wire is the culprit. A light is switched on as Secret Squirrel and Morocco Mole are seen next to the broken part of the wire. The two stare at each other awkwardly, then repair the wire, then Tex from trailers 5, 6 and 11 appears (but in 2D) and pulls a switch which restarts the logo and complete it's usual sequence. Then Tex flies away but crashes into the logo, which causes a black screen with the words "The Audience Is Listening" to fall as Secret walks away. Then Tex and Morocco fly away together holding each other's hands. Then the logo fades out.

FX/SFX: 2D digital animation. This was done by Squirrel/Mole Studios' in-house animation studios.

Music/Sounds: The Deep Note (which flickers and shuts off then turns back on with the logo) plus whatever is going on in the logo.

Availability: In 2012, it will be seen at THX theaters that will be showing Another Secret Squirrel Movie. It first appeared in June 2011 at www.thx.com.

Scare Factor: Medium. The crash noise and the Deep Note may startle some, but it is intended to be funny.

21st Trailer
(2012-2013)

Nicknames: "The YTP Seizure Logo", "Tex vs. YTP", "The Reason Why I Never Saw Link's New Car 2", "Electric Soldier Porygon Logo", "YTP pwns Tex"

Logo: On a rainbow background, we see Tex from trailer 5 going into the King's castle. The King and Link can be seen in their CD-i form. YTP characters then go into the castle and battle Tex in a Pokemon-fashioned way and the YTP cast send out Porygon. Porygon starts seizing Tex like in the Pokemon episode "Electric Soldier Porygon" and Tex gets killed by the seizure. He revives as the THX logo and the blue outline also appears on him then it fades to the 2010 version of the Brodway logo (The 1983 one is used in 2D prints). Then Porygon zooms across the logo and then the background is flashing for about every color of the rainbow. Then the logo fades out and 1 second later, a screamer comes out and scares the audience, then the screen shatters to pieces like glass.

FX/SFX: Amazing CGI animation made by Hatena Productions' in-house animation company, Hatena Digital.

Variant:
In Japanese theaters, the seizing part is replaced with black screen with word "検閲" in japanese. due to concern of epilepsy.
On most YTP movies, screamer part is cut

Music/Sounds: 1920's sounding music before the Pokemon battle, Pokemon LeafGreen music for the battle and seizing part, and the Deep Note, a loud scream from Ghost Car Commercial when screamer pops out, explosion sound combined with glass shattering soundwhen the screen shatters to pieces.

Availability: Seen on YouTube Poop Films movies at the time. It was first seen on the YTP trailer at thx.com. The variant is common in Japan.

Scare Factor: High to WTF!- The seizing, the Deep Note, and the screamer can be scary without THXphobia. Low who are used to seeing it. Minimum, for that version without screamer.

(34th Trailer) (Misterious Black variants)
In the theatre version,it's exactly like the "Bounty" trailer,but the regular out-of-focus clips from movies are replaced by clips from Marvel movies like The Avengers (2012),Iron Man 2,and Misterious Black.The regular sound clips are replaced by sound clips from Skyfall,the Transformers movies,Skyfall (again),A Good Day to Die Hard,and as the deep note plays,the sound clips from Skyfall and Quantum of Solace play.When the blue border fades in,Misterious Black off-screen says his signature line,"Feel the Black." The text,"20 years of making great movies come alive" is replaced by "63 years of Movies feeling the Black."www.thx.com" is replaced by the movie's logo.A copyright notice of the movie is placed above the regular THX copyright notice.
The DVD version has the same variant as the Terminator 2 version of the Cavalcade trailer but with differences.The "T2" is replaced by Misterious Black's logo the clip is replaced by Misterious pointing the gun at the box and shoots it.The THX logo is formed by lightning by helping the water form the logo."Digitally Mastered" is replaced by "Feeling the Black is Digitally Mastered".

THX isn't owned by Lucasfilm anymore. THX is it's own company, THX Ltd.
