Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen to Receive CinemaCon's Comedy Stars of the Year Award
Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon, has announced that Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron will receive this year's "CinemaCon® Comedy Stars of the Year Award." the award will be presented on the evening of Thursday, April 4.
"Rogen and Theron have been bringing audiences around the world to the theatres for over a decade with some of the most entertaining, inspiring and hilarious films of our time. With the initial reaction coming out for the film at SXSW it seems hilarity and box-office success are sure to come as the comedic team of Rogen and Theron bring ‘Long Shot,' to our theatres this May", said Neuhauser.
"Long Shot" stars Rogen as Fred Flarsky, a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble and Theron as Charlotte Field, one of the most influential women in the world. The two people have nothing in common, except unbeknownst to her, she was his childhood crush. When they unexpectedly reconnect, Charlotte hires Fred to be her speechwriter as she prepares to make a run for the Presidency. A fish out of water on Charlotte's elite team, Fred finds himself unprepared for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents. "Long Shot", winner of the this year's South by Southwest Audience Award, also features O'Shea Jackson Jr., Andy Serkis, June Diane Raphael, Ravi Patel, and Alexander Skarsgård. The film was directed by Jonathan Levine.
CinemaCon, the official convention of NATO, will be held April 1-4, 2019 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The Coca-Cola Company is the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon.
