Chadwick Boseman and Eddy Duquenne to Receive CinemaCon Kudos

Chadwick Boseman has been tapped to receive the Male Star of Tomorrow kudo at this year’s CinemaCon, the annual exhib confab hosted by the National Assn. of Theater Owners.

Boseman, who studied at the British American Drama Academy, made his feature debut in the football drama “The Express.” He further impressed audiences and critics in Warner Bros.’ sports biopic “42,” portraying the legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson. He’ll next star as James Brown in the film “Get on Up,” which is set to bow Aug. 1.

“From the moment Chadwick Boseman appeared onscreen as Jackie Robinson in ’42’ there was no doubt that he would be an actor to be reckoned with in Hollywood,” said Mitch Neuhauser, managing director for CinemaCon.

The confab also will honor Eddy Duquenne, CEO of Kinepolis Group, with the Global Achievement Award in Exhibition to be handed out March 24 during International Day. Kinepolis currently operates 23 multiplexes totaling 317 screens across Belgium, Frances, Spain, Switzerland and Poland, with plans to expand operations beyond Europe.

“Eddy Duquenne is a principle example for displaying commitment towards creating innovative concepts and concentrating on establishing Kinepolis’ as the leading film exhibition for the ultimate film and culture fans,” Neuhauser said.

CinemaCon runs March 24-27 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
