Paramount Pictures is an American movie and television company. It distributed all four Indiana Jones films. Its contract with Lucasfilm Ltd. means it will distribute a fifth film, should one be made.
Each of the four Indiana Jones films begins with the Paramount logo, a mountain summit, which then matches the opening shot of each film, a representation of a mountain peak:
- In Raiders of the Lost Ark, the summit becomes a Peruvian mountain. (In The Lost Journal of Indiana Jones, a map shows the location of the mountain, with Jones' note calling it the "Paramount peak of Mt. Shubet" as a reference to the company.)
- In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, the summit becomes the mountain depicted on a gong being struck at Club Obi Wan in Shanghai.
- In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the summit becomes a rocky spire in the Utah canyon lands.
- In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the summit becomes a mound of dirt being pushed up by gophers or prairie dogs in the Nevada countryside.
