The honor will be bestowed on February 7 at the ICG’s annual Publicists Awards ceremony
Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed Avengers: Endgame, which became the highest-grossing box office movie of all time, will receive this year’s Publicists Motion Picture Showman of the Year Award from the International Cinematographers Guild.
The honor will be bestowed on February 7, 2020, at the ICG’s annual Publicists Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton.
“Anthony and Joe Russo have made a huge impact in cinema with the record-breaking Avengers and Captain America films,” said Lewis Rothenberg, National President of the ICG. “They have taken audiences around the world on a wild journey with their unique and imaginative brand of storytelling and are two of the most exciting innovators in our industry today. We are thrilled to celebrate their cinematic showmanship and commitment to nurturing new talent.”
The brothers, whose box office for their movies totals $6.8 billion to date, also last year opened their new studio, AGBO. Its film Mosul, directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, was screened at the Venice and Toronto Film Festicals this year. Their next project is Cherry, starring Tom Holland.
