NEW YORK, NY (March 22, 2011) – Scheduled for its world premiere on Thursday March 24th in Moscow, Russia, The Salamander Key (formerly The Fifth Execution) is a motion picture staring Rutger Hauer, Michael Madsen and mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Fedor Emelianenko.
The action-film sure to entertain movie buffs around the globe, marks Emelianenko’s debut on the big screen.
Premised on a group of international scientists who disappear on a remote island in South-Eastern Asia while conducting advanced medical research, the Rescue Group commissioned to seek out the team locate remnants of a high-tech laboratory revealing evidence that experimental testing has been conducted on animals and humans; the last communication from the scientists prior to their disappearance cautions the world of immanent, grave global disaster.
"Today we’ve been given a priceless gift – the Elixir of Life…" was the sensational statement decreed by the CEO of ‘Farm-line Corporation’ in Bangkok. The miraculous discovery came whilst researching the salamander’s ability to renew its cells.
‘Congressman commits suicide to mark the eighth death in one month!’ ‘An epidemic of suicide!’ reads headlines on the front pages of all major newspapers, leaving one of Thailand’s top-cops to initiate the investigation behind the continuous string of rash, mysterious deaths.
What joins all these events together? And why is a small island in South-Eastern Asia key to solving the complex questions. The Salamander Key opens the door for a peek into a scientific breakthrough abused for personal gain.
