Asian Movies are leveling up to Hollywood standards and does not want to be left out. And for this year, HBO Asia produced their first movie together with Infinite Studios,  DEAD MINE. Bringing together international actors in the region is an exciting mix.  

This movie gives a different twist to the infamous Yamashita Treasure that is (still) searched here in the Philippines, makes it way to the islands of Sulawesi in Indonesia. As a team of explorers and soldiers go on this quest, they found a very morbid truth inside an abandoned mine.

Dead Mine features mostly Indonesian actors like Ario Bayu, Bang Tigor, Joe Taslim and Mike Lewis which some played in another SM CinExlcusive The Raid Redemption. Other cast members are Mike Lewis, Carmen Soo and Les Loveday, Jimmy T, Sam Hazeldine and Miki Mizuno. 

Dead Mine is showing exclusively in SM Cinemas on November 7, 2012. Special discounts can be availed when using E-plus cards!
