WASHINGTON D.C. (April 8, 2015) –Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne will receive the "CinemaCon® Rising Stars of 2015 Award" it was announced today by Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon. CinemaCon, the official convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), will be held April 20 – 23, 2015 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Wolff and Delevingne will be presented with this special honor at the "CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards" ceremony to take place on Thursday evening, April 23, in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The Coca-Cola Company, the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon, will host the final night gala awards program.
"With a number of standout roles already on his resume and with her impressive array of upcoming projects both Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne are poised to breakthrough in the coming year starting off with this summer’s release of 'Paper Towns'," noted Neuhauser. "We could not be more excited to honor these new talents that are sure to grace our screens for many years to come."
Wolff and Delevingne can be seen later this summer starring in 20th Century Fox’s "Paper Towns" out on July 24, 2015. Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green, "Paper Towns" is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin (Wolff) and his enigmatic neighbor Margo (Delevingne), who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears—leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship—and true love.
In the past year, actor/musician Wolff solidified his standing as one of the most promising NextGen actors with two wildly successful, coming-of-age films, "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Palo Alto." In addition to "Paper Towns", his upcoming film slate includes "Ashby," "In Dubious Battle" and "The Intern."
Already one of the most recognizable faces in the world, Delevingne made her film debut in "Anna Karenina" opposite Keira Knightley. In addition to "Paper Town" she currently has five films due for release. Next up she can be seen in "The Face of an Angel" directed by Michael Winterbottom.; "Pan" starring Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara and Garrett Hedland, "London Fields" with Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, "Kids in Love" opposite Will Poulter, Alma Jodorowsky and Sebastien de Souza and "Tulip Fever" alongside Judi Dench, Christoph Waltz and Jack O’Connell. She will also begin production for DC Comics’ "Suicide Squad" later this year.
CinemaCon will attract upwards of 5,000 motion picture professionals from all facets of the industry –from exhibition and distribution, to the equipment and concession areas – all on hand to celebrate the movie-going experience and the cinema industry. From exclusive Hollywood product presentations highlighting a slate of upcoming films, to must-see premiere feature screenings, to the biggest stars, producers and directors, CinemaCon will help jumpstart the excitement and buzz that surrounds the summer season at the box office.
