Tom
Rothman

Chairman, Motion Picture Group

Rothman has driven the motion-picture group to its highest profitability in over a decade by backing distinctive filmmakers such as Quentin Tarantino (“Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”) and Edgar Wright (“Baby Driver,” the upcoming “Last Night in Soho”) and reinvigorating existing IP with Marvel titles “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “Venom,” as well as the sequels “Zombieland: Double Tap” and “Peter Rabbit 2.” He stood up to Disney, rebuffing its request for 50% of “Spider-Man,” effectively removing the franchise from the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. His fall 2019 slate boasts three female-helmed films — Marielle Heller’s “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” and Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels.” And then, of course, there’s “Jumanji: The Next Level.”
