Sony Pictures Re-Ups Tom Rothman’s Contract, Adds CEO To Motion Picture Group Chairman Title
After an eight-year streak on the Culver City lot, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman will continue to lead the film studio, this time adding CEO to his title as the global media conglomerate has extended his contract. Rothman will continue to report to Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra.

Before the pandemic, rumors swirled about Rothman’s retirement, but that is certainly not happening. A proponent of protecting the theatrical window, he has amassed great global hits for Sony during his eight-year tenure including Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home ($1.13 billion worldwide box office), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($962.5 million) and its sequel Next Level ($800M), and Venom ($854M), while turning adult contemporary movies like the Oscar-nominated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Rothman lured Quentin Tarantino to the studio) and Little Women into worldwide event films with respective grosses of $374.5M and $216.6M.
