Emma Thomas is a bona fide force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. It's as if everything she touches turn to gold. After first working as a coordinator for Polygram Filmed Entertainment, Emma went on to start Syncopy Films alongside the incomparable Christopher Nolan in 2005. The company is responsible for such big-time blockbusters as Inception, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

And in the next two years, Emma has two more monster films lined up. She produced the latest Superman film, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which hits theaters this June, and Johnny Depp's Transcendence, out in 2014.
