Stallone and Schwarzenegger wow Macau

Written by Yuci Tai

The stars shone brightly last Friday night at The Venetian Theatre, as international icons Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger walked the red carpet for Asia’s only special screening of their latest film, The Expendables 3, marking their first-ever visit to Macau. And both quoted the Terminator’s famous movie’s line “I’ll be back!”

With a throng of enthusiastic fans lining the red carpet and clamoring for the stars’ attention, the special screening of The Expendables 3 was part of a series of activities celebrating The Venetian’s 7th anniversary on 28 August. Stallone and Schwarzenegger also participated in a hand-printing ceremony while the captivated crowd looked on, laying down their handprints and signatures for Cotai Strip Resorts Macao’s Bridge of Stars Gallery.

Joining the blockbuster film’s iconic lead actors at the red carpet event was Olympian, undefeated UFC bantamweight champion and The Expendables 3 cast member Ronda Rousey, who was in town for last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night Macao, and Hong Kong celebrities Jessica C, Joyce Lee, Loretta Chow, Phillip Ng, Timmy Hung and Janet Chau.

In The Expendables 3, 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.
