President, Worldwide Marketing & Distribution

Well entrenched in the studio marketing system, Greenstein reupped his contract in 2017. That same year brought hits such as Edgar Wright’s quirky action thriller “Baby Driver” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which helped re-animate what was becoming a tired web-spinner franchise. Since then, box office successes like “Peter Rabbit,” “Venom,” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” became marketing triumphs as their DNA presented hurdles of antiquated IP, and in “Venom’s” case, a Spider-Man-adjacent antihero without Spider-Man. Greenstein joined the company in 2014 after a long stint running marketing at Paramount, hired by Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman’s predecessor at Sony. Before joining Paramount in 2005, he was head of marketing for Dimension Films.
