Star Movies presents National Treasure

Watch the exclusive premiere of "National Treasure" this Friday, May 5th at 9 p.m. only on Star Movies

Mumbai, April 28, 2006… Where do you think the ultimate treasure is hidden? A treasure that's been building for four thousand years. You name it… this bounty's got it all… Gold from the Temple of Solomon… King Alaric II's ransom of the great Athenians… The entire wealth of 5th century Rome… The Sword of Alexander the Great! Watch Nicholas Cage chase this priceless booty in the exclusive premiere of National Treasure on Friday, May 5th at 9 p.m. only on Star Movies.

Since childhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicholas Cage) has known that he is descended from a long line of people whose job is to guard a treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers, who hid clues to its whereabouts in the country's currency and on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Now, he has learned of a plot to steal the Declaration, and has only one option: steal it himself. Even if he pulls off this monumental task, keeping the treasure safe is still going to be incredibly hard, especially since the FBI has also gotten wind of the scheme. This treasure hunting adventure and conspiracy film, directed by Jon Turteltaub, grossed $347,451,894 at the worldwide box office.

So tune in to this action-packed, adventure film on Friday night, May 5th at 9 p.m. with the exclusive premiere of National Treasure only on Star Movies.
