http://industryclub.com.au/The most star-powered film franchise in history raises the bar to unprecedented heights with a dream team of global superstars, explosive stunts and mind-boggling weaponry as the mercenary group comes face to face with ruthless arms dealer and Expendables co-founder Conrad Stonebanks whose mission is to wipe out the entire team.

This all-star event bringing renowned Hollywood action heroes to Macao will be the cornerstone of the 7thanniversary celebration for The Venetian Macao, marking another milestone for the integrated resort and further cementing its status as the leading destination in China for global talent.  The weekend celebration will culminate in an anticipated UFC fight event at the property.

“The Venetian Macao is absolutely the place to be in Macao to see the biggest and brightest global superstars of film, music, sports and more,” said Edward Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sands China Ltd. “A star-studded event like the VIP screening of The Expendables 3 provides exceptional entertainment and helps raise the profile of Macao as a world centre of tourism and leisure.”

Leading Sands China’s drive to increase global awareness of Macao and the Cotai Strip is the company’s multi-tiered entertainment strategy, which continues to attract international superstars from the worlds of music, film, television, sports and more.

The Venetian Macao has established itself as a major stop on world tours, delivering top international entertainers including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, The Police, Avril LavigneEason ChanJay Chouand a record-setting concert by the Rolling Stones. In 2013 alone, the property attracted the tours of Rihanna, Alicia Keys andJustin Bieber.

The Venetian Macao captured the world’s attention in November of that same year with the championship boxing event pitting Manny Pacquiao against Brandon Rios. Superstar athletes at the integrated resort have includedTiger Woods, Yao MingKobe Bryantand Roger Federer. And one of the world’s most iconic men, David Beckham, has joined forces with The Venetian Macao and Las Vegas Sands’ integrated resort property inSingapore as part of a partnership between Beckham Ventures and Las Vegas Sands.

Award shows, film shoots and movie premieres have given visitors a chance to see in person some of the most recognizable faces of film and television. Hollywood converged at The Venetian Macao last October for the Huading Awards with celebrity appearances by Nicole KidmanNicolas CageQuentin TarantinoMichelle DockeryJeremy IronsJackie ChanSam Worthington and Matthew Perry. The Venetian Macao has rolled out the red carpet to host premieres for films such as My Lucky Star starring Zhang Ziyi and From Vegas toMacau starring Chow Yun Fat and Nicholas Tse — both of which featured scenes shot at the iconic integrated resort  as well as for the DreamWorks Animation films Turbo, Mr. Peabody and Sherman and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

In 2013, events broadcast from the resort’s 15,000 seat Cotai Arena  the largest in all of Macao  reached an audience of nearly 1 billion television viewers in China alone.  The resort hosted dozens of high profile events last year, and the property has become a mecca for the film and television industry, securing a plethora of productions, festivals and premieres

2014 has been equally successful for The Venetian Macao as it continues to demonstrate its proven track record as the leader in attracting the biggest names in entertainment:  In March, Kevin Spacey took the stage for the Venetian Charity Ball along with Anthony Kennedy Shriver.  In April, David Beckham and Ricky Martin were front-and-center at The Venetian Macao for the China Music Awards.  In June, the property hosted a VIP screening for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

The VIP screening for The Expendables 3 will take place in the lavish 1,800 seat Venetian Theatre, where onlookers will be able to catch a glimpse of the glittering array of celebrities as they walk the red carpet at The Venetian Macao.

Asia, and China especially, are becoming a much bigger part of our business and as their markets continue to expand, it is very important we find ways to bring talent and engage with their audiences in new and exciting ways,” said Avi Lerner, Chairman and CEO of Nu Image, Inc. and Millennium Films.

The Venetian Theatre, one of the most luxurious entertainment venues in greater China, is a key player in Sands China’s effort to bring the best international entertainment to Macao, hosting star-studded red carpet events from movie premieres to renowned movie awards and festivals including the China Music Awards and the Asia Pacific Film Festival. The diversity of entertainment provided by Sands China Ltd. ranges from global superstar performances and world-class sports spectaculars to family-friendly attractions, allowing locals and visitors of all ages a chance to enjoy some of the world’s greatest entertainment acts in Macao.
