July 1-August 2001 Edit
Bumper: On a dark orange background with several lights shining and moving throughout, we see several 3D bars, colored red and white, flying and sliding around. The camera pans down and, as the Showcase logo forms (which consists of the 1997-present Showtime logo but with "TIM" replaced with "CAS" and two overlapping right lines to the right of it), form said right lines via a burst of firey light. The logo and the background shine rapidly as the text "FEATURE PRESENTATION" zooms in slowly below with a "dissolve in" effect.
FX/SFX: The red and white bars sliding and moving and morphing into the lines beside "SHOWCASE", the lights in the background moving. Very impressive animation, although some have criticized it for not matching with the network's image.
Music/Sounds: A dramatic string theme with several drums, sounding rather similar to the song "Erase/Rewind" by The Cardigans.
Availability: Extinct. It was used for only 2 months before being abandoned in favor of "Next on" bumpers that aired directly before a following feature's content rating screens. The music in this open continued to be used in said bumpers until 2007, while the graphics were still used for said "Next on" bumpers until 2006.
Scare Factor: None to minimal.
