Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Hires Ex-Sony Exec David Kaminow

Annapurna Pictures has named David Kaminow president of marketing, several weeks after he departed from Sony Pictures.

Kaminow will report to founder Megan Ellison and will oversee global marketing and publicity.

Annapurna’s upcoming slate includes Richard Linklater’s “That’s What I’m Talking About,” which will be released in theaters later this year by Paramount; David O. Russell’s “Joy,” set for a Christmas launch by Fox; and Ana Lily Amirpour’s dystopian drama “The Bad Batch,” starring Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves.

In 2009, Kaminow was named president of worldwide strategic marketing and research at Sony, where he oversaw all worldwide theatrical market research. He’s the latest in a long line of executives to depart from the studio over the past two years.

He worked on Sony titles including the Spider-Man franchise, “Skyfall,” “21 Jump Street” and its sequel, “The Da Vinci Code,” “Angels and Demons,” “American Hustle,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Moneyball” and “The Social Network.”

Prior to joining Sony, Kaminow was senior VP of marketing and research at Miramax, where he worked on marketing campaigns for “The English Patient,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “Good Will Hunting,” “The Cider House Rules” and “Life is Beautiful.”

News about Kaminow was first reported by the Wrap.
