Sylvester Stallone will receive the "CinemaCon® Career Achievement Award," it was announced today by the convention's managing director, Mitch Neuhauser. CinemaCon, the official convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), the largest and most important gathering of cinema owners and operators from around the world, will be held April 23 - 26, 2012 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Stallone will be presented with this special honor at the "CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards" ceremony to take place on Thursday evening, April 26, in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The Coca-Cola Company, the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon, will host the final night gala awards program.

"Sylvester Stallone has proven himself time and time again to be a prolific actor, writer and director over the years," says Neuhauser. "Throughout his incredible career spanning nearly 40 years, Sylvester has established his ability to continually captivate his audiences. We are very thrilled to acknowledge his remarkable career by honoring him with our ‘CinemaCon® Career Achievement Award.'"

Stallone can next be seen in Liongate's highly anticipated sequel, "The Expendables 2." On August 17, 2012, the star-studded cast is back when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney (Stallone) and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time. Joining Stallone are the newest cast members Liam Hemsworth, Scott Adkins, martial arts legends Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Dame, and Chinese actress Yu Nan as the first female Expendable. Reprising actors include Stallone, Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture.
