THR's Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100
Last year, Warner Bros. International took in $2.93 billion at the foreign box office, setting a record and beating all major studios. And this year, Kwan-Rubinek expects revenues to cross $3 billion. "I am very proud that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 grossed $953 million internationally -- 44 percent higher than the last film. And it secured the biggest international opening of all time, $313.5 million from 59 countries," she says.
Kwan-Rubinek also enjoyed huge success with The Hangover Part II, which earned $331 million offshore (73 percent more than the original) to become the top R-rated comedy of all time.
The nature of her job means she's constantly criss-crossing the globe, with Europe her most frequented region. "Traveling gets harder as you get older, but I truly enjoy it," says Kwan-Rubinek, 48, who recently remarried and relocated from Encino to Santa Monica with her 13-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter. "The commute is a little longer, but I just love coming home."
