Langley

Chairman, Filmed Entertainment Group

Under Langley’s leadership, the studio responded quickly to the pandemic, delaying the release of “F9” and “Minions” by a year and offering “The Invisible Man,” “The Hunt” and “Emma” on PVOD after their theatrical releases were cut short. More significantly, it released “Trolls World Tour” straight to PVOD, earning Universal a $95 million gross it didn’t have to split with exhibitors. Langley also ran the working group for film and TV on the L.A. County Economic Resiliency Task Force to get the industry back to work. It’s a far cry from her first year atop the filmed entertainment division in 2019, when she could bask in Oscar glory (three wins for “Green Book,” including best picture) and box office hits such as “Hobbs & Shaw.”
