Tom
Rothman

Chairman, Motion Picture Group

The veteran Hollywood exec was made chair of Sony’s entire movie operation in 2015, tasked with righting a studio in freefall. And there are signs the turnaround is under way. Sony scored with “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Peter Rabbit” and looks like it’ll have a hit with fall’s actioner “Venom,” based on the Marvel Comics alien. But with Disney’s acquisition of Fox and AT&T’s purchase of Warner Bros., Sony’s rivals keep gaining muscle, putting pressure on Rothman for innovative ways to compete. Key will be Sony’s efforts to fashion a true Spidey universe, as it’s creating standalone films for Kraven, Silver Sable and Silk. Coming in December is “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” the CGI feature centering on biracial superhero Miles Morales.
