Michael B. Jordan will be honored with the Male Star of the Year Award at this year's CinemaCon, it was announced Tuesday.

The award comes ahead of Jordan's next film Without Remorse, an adaptation of a Tom Clancy novel to be released by Paramount in September. The film will be showcased at the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners in Las Vegas, set to run March 30-April 2, as part of Paramount's upcoming slate.

The award honors Jordan's career so far, including his ongoing collaboration with director Ryan Coogler from Fruitvale Station to playing Adonis Creed in Creed and Killmonger in Black Panther. The actor also played real-life social justice activist and lawyer Bryan Stevenson in last year's Just Mercy.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday reported exclusively that Jordan is set to return for Creed 3, which is in the works with writer Zach Baylin. 

The CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards will be presented April 2 at The Colosseum at Las Vegas' Caesar's Palace, where the annual convention takes place.
