Star Trek into Darkness actor Chris Pine will be receiving the CinemaCon Male Star of the Year Award at this year’s CinemaCon.
CinemaCon attracts five thousand industry members to its yearly convention, which will be held this year April 15-18 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
Pine will receive his award on Thursday evening, April 18, in the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace.
“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,” said Mitch Neuhauser, the managing director of CinemaCon. “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.'”
