Summary: 
Sony Pictures Entertainment, the studio division of Japan-based Sony Corporation, contributed $8.9 billion (12%) to the parent company’s $75.2 billion revenue total in 2018. Since 2002, 56 percent of Sony's youth-rated films have featured smoking, the most of any major studio. Sony published its first internal policy on tobacco depictions at the end of 2012. The share of Sony's PG-13 films with smoking dropped below 50%, for the first time, in 2016 but the share of all Sony films with tobacco has since rebounded.
