[=TriStar=] Pictures is a division of Sony and a sister company of ColumbiaPictures. Founded in 1982 as Nova Pictures by a joint venture of Columbia, Creator/{{CBS}} and {{Creator/HBO}}, the company's name changed to Tri-Star Pictures and began distributing films in 1984 (their first release was ''Where The Boys Are '84'', a pickup from ITC). Over the next three years Columbia would buy CBS and HBO's shares of the company and finally in 1987, Columbia had taken over the whole company. Throughout its first 15 years, [=TriStar=] served as an equal to Columbia by producing similar product while also distributing the films of CarolcoPictures (an arrangement that lasted until 1994, when they switched to MetroGoldwynMayer, who distributed most of the studio's final films).

After the flop of ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'', Sony decided to downscale [=TriStar=] and put more emphasis on its then-new B-movie division, ScreenGems. [=TriStar=] continued to exist as a division for titles acquired from different companies and the occasional DirectToVideo product, but still managed to get a successful film every once in a while (such as ''Film/{{District 9}}'' and ''Film/{{Looper}}'').
