“Star Trek” star Chris Pine is set to be honored at CinemaCon next month.
Chris will receive the CinemaCon Male Star of the Year award at the event’s convention this April.
CinemaCon, which takes place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, hosts more than 5,000 industry motion picture professionals each year, celebrating the moviegoing experience and the cinema industry.
The actor will receive his award on Thursday, April 18, in The Colosseum.
“With this summer’s ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2009’s ‘Star Trek,’ and then at year-end, the release of ‘Jack Ryan,’ without a doubt, 2013 is going to be Chris Pine’s year,” CinemaCon Managing Director Mitch Neuhauser said in a release. “Chris Pine has emerged as one of Hollywood’s hottest and most accomplished young actors and CinemaCon is thrilled to honor him as its 2013 ‘Male Star of the Year.’”
Already announced award recipients include Harrison Ford, who will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, Armie Hammer, who will pick up the CinemaCon Male Star of Tomorrow Award and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who will receive the CinemaCon Breakthrough Filmmaker of the Year award.
