Kevin Hart to Receive CinemaCon’s Comedy Star of the Year Award

Kevin Hart will receive the comedy star of the year award at CinemaCon, the upcoming exhibition industry conference.

The comic star has emerged as one of the movie business’s most reliable box office draws, stringing together such hits as “Ride Along,” “The Wedding Ringer” and “Think Like a Man.” He’s also been wildly prolific, appearing in more than a half dozen movies over the past two years.

Hart will next appear opposite Will Ferrell in this March’s “Get Hard” and next year brings a sequel to “Ride Along.”

Hart will pick up his award at CinemaCon’s awards ceremony on Thursday, April 23, at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
