For many of the stars who descended on Sin City for CinemaCon, the real draw was Usher.
The dates for the R&B hitmaker’s “Usher — My Way” residency at Park MGM coincided with the theater owners’ convention. Those CinemaCon guests who watched his act included Zendaya (with boyfriend Tom Holland) and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts with Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. “It was the best,” Fishback said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter prior to taking home a Rising Star award at CinemaCon’s Big Screen Achievement Awards alongside Ramos. “It’s so immersive and it feels like you’re in the club with one of the best artists ever.”
Zendaya, in Las Vegas to promote Dune: part two and won a Star of the Year award, took to Instagram Stories to share her experience at the concert, something she called a “childhood dream come true.” She added, “If I tell you we barely had a voice by the end of this.”
