Hollywood will descend on to UAE’s shores once again as Will Smith returns to host a screening of this summer’s biggest release, ‘Suicide Squad’.

The Academy Award nominee and four-time Grammy winner will be attending a screening of his latest Warner Bros. Pictures’ film on August 7 at Vox Max, City Centre Deira.

Albeit already open to patrons, the screening of ‘Suicide Squad’ will officially launch the largest screen in the MENA region.

The screening is part of a series of events Smith will be participating in while in Dubai.

Organised by Maven Marketing & Events and Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas, Smith’s and his famous family have been regulars in Dubai these past few years, with wife Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow and son Jaden, all having attended special events in the emirate.

Sarah Omolewu, Managing Partner of Maven Marketing & Events commented on the announcement stating, “It is an honor to be working with such a prolific icon as Will Smith, and VOX Cinemas, in our effort to make Dubai a regular stop on major blockbuster movie promotional world tours.

“Dubai has established itself as a global financial center and tourism hub rivaling markets like New York, London, and Tokyo. We are excited to play a role in bolstering the entertainment sector in this dynamic market.”

Although tickets can’t be purchased for the special invite-only event, fans can win a chance to catch the Hollywood actor by purchasing advance tickets for screenings of ‘Suicide Squad’ before August 4. If you get lucky, you will walk the red carpet with Smith.
