Anyone recognize it? (Not Century Gothic, not Johnston and definitely not Gill...)

The second still looks like Century Gothic to me. Note the large x-height and goofy 'S' and 'R'.

yep, you're right stephen, the credits look like century gothic... still think the main title is more 'futuraey' though... ah, those geometric sans, they're such copy cats :-)

i guess... but i agree that main logo seems more like futura-ish.

As for the names of the cast members, I vote Century Gothic.

The titles are here: http://vimeo.com/5848690

If you look at the name Robert Sean Leonard in that video, the crossbars of the E and of the A are at very close heights, whereas in Futura (and, for that matter, in Tw Cen MT), the crossbar of A is much lower. Also the base of the L seems to be just as wide as the base of the E, whereas in Futura, the base of the L is shorter than that of the E.

Forgive me if I got any of those typographic terms wrong -- I'm but a newbie in this whole world!
