The star of the recent 3 Days To Kill and the upcoming Draft Day will receive the 2014 Cinema Icon Award in Las Vegas on March 27.

“With over four decades both on screen and behind the camera, Kevin Costner has entertained audiences with memorable performances and mesmerised them with his exceptional filmmaking ability,” said CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser.

“With films like The Untouchables, Bull Durham, Field Of Dreams, Dances With Wolves, Open Range, Man Of Steel and Jack Ryan, Costner’s contribution to the movie-going experience is unparalleled.”

CinemaCon is scheduled to run from March 24-27.

  • Neighbors will screen on March 25 at the convention. Universal releases the comedy on May 9.
