WASHINGTON D.C.Â â€“ Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate and Annie Mumolo will receive the â€œCinemaConÂ®Â Female Stars of Year Award,â€ 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 11-14, 2016 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The cast of STX Entertainmentâ€™s hilarious comedy â€œBad Momsâ€ will be presented with this special honor at the â€œCinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awardsâ€ ceremony taking place on the evening of Thursday, April 14, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, hosted by the Coca-Cola Company, the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon.
â€œWith some of the most memorable roles on the big and small screen between them Kunis, Bell Applegate and Mumolo are sure to deliver again when they team up for the upcoming release of â€˜Bad Moms,â€™â€ noted Neuhauser. â€œWe are thrilled to be able to honor a cast with such a history of entertaining audiences as this yearâ€™s â€˜Female Stars of the Year.â€™â€
This summer Kunis, Bell, Applegate and Mumolo can be seen starring together in STX Entertainmentâ€™s highly anticipated â€œBad Momsâ€ out on July 29, 2016. Amy Mitchell (Kunis) puts her family first, second, and third. But her man-child husband, high-maintenance kids and idiot boss are taking a toll. When the alpha moms (Applegate, Mumolo, and Jada Pinkett Smith) at her kidsâ€™ school push her too far, Amy finally snaps. Good Amy becomes Bad Amy really fast and she doesnâ€™t go it alone. Teaming up with two other misfit moms (Kathryn Hahn and Bell), Amy gets a jolt of freedom that shakes up her life and might even make her a better mom.
