"With a stunning turn in the title role of 'Hugo,' Butterfield has already proven himself as one to watch in Hollywood. In a short time, he has already [endeared] himself to audiences and critics alike with his captivating on-screen performances, and I cannot think of a young actor more deserving to be this year's CinemaCon Rising Star."Previous winners of the Rising Star Award include Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) for 2011, and Diego Boneta (Rock Of Ages) for 2012.
On the same day at CinemaCon, Lionsgate will be holding a presentation highlighting their 2013 releases and have announced that several special guests will be in attendance. It definitely seems possible that Asa Butterfield will be one of them -- we'll keep you updated.
