Clint Eastwood to Headline CinemaCon Lunch, ‘American Sniper’ Wins Fandango Award

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood will be interviewed at a special filmmaker’s luncheon at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition tradeshow taking place this April in Las Vegas.

The actor and director is coming off “American Sniper,” the biggest domestic release of 2014 and the highest-grossing film of his decades-long career.

Past filmmakers who have been on hand for this annual CinemaCon event include Ang Lee, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Christopher Nolan and George Lucas.

In addition to being grilled about his life and work, Eastwood will be presented with this year’s Fandango Fan Choice Award for his work on “American Sniper.” The award is voted on by the online ticketer’s users, but it usually goes to big-budget, special effects-driven or fanboy films such as “The Hunger Games,” “Inception” or “Twilight” rather than meditative, R-rated dramas.
