Tom
Rothman

Chairman, Motion Picture Group

Rothman has righted Sony’s motion-picture division’s direction since taking charge in 2015, though the pandemic has of course presented challenges, as he was forced to lay off 35 marketing employees in October. In 2019, the studio released “Spider-­Man: Far From Home,” which became Sony’s highest-grossing film ever, earning more than $1 billion worldwide. And then there was “Jumanji: The Next Level,” which earned more than $800 million. The studio kicked off 2020 with the release of “Bad Boys for Life,” which took in $429 million globally, becoming the highest-grossing film in the franchise, then scored 20 Oscar nominations, including two for best picture (“Little Women,” “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”). The upcoming slate includes “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and the PlayStation video game franchise adaptation “Uncharted,” starring Tom Holland.
