Shailene Woodley has been named the 2014 CinemaCon® Female Star of Tomorrow Award winner and will be presented with the honor next month in Vegas. The annual gathering of theatre owners and industry professionals will take place at Caesars March 24-27th, with the awards ceremony taking place on the 27th during the CinemaCon Big Screen Achievements Awards ceremony.
 
Woodley delivered an amazing performance in 2013’s The Spectacular Now and will star in the much-anticipated 20th Century Fox film adaptation of the heartbreaking novel, The Fault in Our Stars, hitting theaters on June 6th. Woodley will also be seen starring in the sci-fi action film Divergent coming to theaters on March 21st.
 
Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon, announced Woodley’s award, saying, “With an award winning and awe inspiring performance opposite George Clooney in The Descendants already under her belt, Shailene Woodley has already proven that she is a rising star to watch in Hollywood. With upcoming starring roles in 20th Century Fox’s The Fault In Our Stars, as well as Summit Entertainment’s Divergent series Woodley will be one young star to be reckoned with and we could not be more pleased to honor her with the ‘CinemaCon Female Star of Tomorrow Award.’”
 
Details on The Fault in Our Stars:
 
The Fault in Our Stars is about Hazel (Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort), two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional and a love that sweeps them on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. The Fault In Our Stars, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love. The film also stars Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Nat Wolff, and Willem Dafoe.
