The original home video releases have the 75th anniversary variation of the current Warner Bros. logo at the beginning and the 1992 closing logo at the end, both with the Time Warner Entertainment byline. Current prints plastered this with the standard version of the current Warner Bros. logo at the beginning, and the 2001 Warner Bros. closing logo at the end, both with the 2003 TimeWarner byline.

the book by Michael Crichton is so much better, but the movie's a fun ride too!
The book sphere, by Michael Crichton, is excellent. The movie on the other hand, falls short. The film of course, doesn't follow the book exactly, like all book-to-movies, however, it does follow pretty closely, considering. Dustin Hoffman fits into PERFECT character. He plays his character just like the book plays him. Quiet. Not very excitable. Samuel L. Jackson, was also good. However, my casting flaw would be Sharon Stone. She's horrible, not playing her character at all well. However, for some reason people don't like this movie, even despite Sharon Stone and some other flaws. I watched this before the book, so I don't like it because I read the book. I like this film before I read the book. So, I don't get why people don't like SPHERE. I mean, sure it's not great, but it's entertaining enough on a friday/saturday night to watch along with some popcorn. Give this film a break. Rent it.....I'm sure you won't be too dissapointed.
