Comic Steve Martin will be honoured with the 43rd American Film Institute Lifetime Achievement Award, celebrating his career in film. The award will be presented to Martin at a gala tribute in Los Angeles, California on June 4, 2015.
Martin began his career writing for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, winning an Emmy in 1969. He went on to forge a career in comedy before his first film - seven-minute short The Absent-Minded Waiter - was nominated for an Academy Award in 1977. His break-out role came in 1979's The Jerk, which he also co-wrote, and he went on to star in a string of comedy hits, including Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, Little Shop Of Horrors and Planes, Trains And Automobiles.

Just when you thought you'd got yourself clean and were all peppy after some upbeat family-friendly popcorn thrills, here's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For to darken up the doorways. (And it will light up a cigarette in those doorways and spit out some tough dialogue from between its bloodstained teeth while it's lingering there.)
