Toby
Emmerich

Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group

In January, Emmerich survived a lengthy corporate bake-off against marketing chief Sue Kroll to become head of the pictures group. The veteran executive is tasked with helping Warner Bros. revitalize its under-performing slate of DC films. Emmerich enjoyed a sizzling run at the summer box office, riding on the success of “The Meg” and “Crazy Rich Asians,” while demonic scarefest “The Nun” kicked off the fall season on a high note. The studio hopes the much ballyhooed 
“A Star Is Born” will be an awards magnet. Looming over it all is the challenge of appeasing a new corporate parent with little Hollywood experience, as AT&T finalized its acquisition of Time Warner, Warners’ former parent company. Emmerich, who came aboard in 1992, previously ran New Line.
