The Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group is an American film production company and the result of a merger between Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. and TriStar Pictures, Inc. in 1998. The company is a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

History

The Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group was launched in 1998, as a current division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, owned by Sony. It also has many of Sony Pictures' current motion picture subsidiaries as part of it. Its subsidiaries were Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Triumph Films, Sony Pictures Classics, and Sony Pictures Releasing.

In 1999, Columbia TriStar launches Screen Gems as a film studio, an American film production company and subsidiary company of Sony Pictures Entertainment's Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group that has served several different purposes for its parent companies over the decades since its incorporation.

In 2002, Columbia TriStar Television was shut down, and folded into Sony Pictures Television. The last two remaining companies, with the "Columbia TriStar" brand in its name, were Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment, and the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment became Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in 2004 and Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group became the only subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment that has the "Columbia TriStar" brand name in its name.

In 2013, TriStar Productions was launched, as a joint venture of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Thomas Rothman.
