Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition and high tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. Bull employs an enviable team of experts at Trial Analysis Corporation to shape successful narratives down to the very last detail. They include his quick-witted former brother-in-law, Benny Col√≥n, a lawyer who acts as defense attorney in the company’s mock trials; Marissa Morgan, a cutting-edge neurolinguistics expert from the Department of Homeland Security; former NYPD detective Danny James, the firm’s tough but relatable investigator; haughty millennial hacker Cable McCrory, who is responsible for gathering cyber intelligence; and Chunk Palmer, a fashion-conscious stylist and former All-American lineman who fine tunes clients’ appearances for trial. In high-stakes trials, Bull’s combination of remarkable insight into human nature, three Ph.D.’s and a top-notch staff creates winning strategies that tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor.

Read the sypnosis below before watching!
 
 South Korean Navy Special Forces Captain Jang Hak-soo and his 7 members disguise themselves as a North Korean inspection unit. Their mission directives from General Douglas MacArthur are to infiltrate the North Korean army command centre in Incheon and secure the mine chart; to kidnap ‘Ryu Jang-choon’ the second highest ranking North Korean officer and; on D-day, to light the Palmido light house as a signal to the main UN forces.

Despite growing suspicion from the clever tactician Commander Lim Gye-jin of the North Korea’s ...People Army, Jang and his team successfully carry out their mission with the help of an underground information network.

Then one day, their true identity is revealed….


Date of Release: 15th September 2016
Rating: NC16 (Consumer Advice: Violence)
Language: In Korean and English with English and Chinese subtitles
Run time: 110-mins
Genre: Action/ Drama








 
 
Liam Neeson is one of my favourite cool actors.. but I think this film doesn't bring out much of his good scenes in acting. More focus is on the Lee Jung-Jae and Lee Bum-Soo. Some parts may be draggy, especially at the beginning. But its still quite an interesting movie to catch. The war effects and scenes are really nice and real. Do catch it in cinemas from 15th Sept 2016 onwards! :)


Movie rating: 7/10


 
 
Catch this in Cinemas on 15 Sept 2016!

WISMA ATRIA BRINGS SHOPPERS EXCITING GASTRONOMIC AND LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCES WITH A LINE UP OF NEW TENANTS!


  • A new wave of trendy Food & Beverage (F&B) concepts set to whet your palate at Wisma Atria  
  • New lifestyle brands and services to enhance the mall’s retail mix and shopping experience
 
Singapore, 31 August 2016Wisma Atria, one of the well-established shopping malls in Orchard Road, has lined up an exciting wave of culinary concepts and lifestyle retail offerings as part of the mall’s continuous efforts to enhance its shoppers' experience. 
 
"With the renewed retail offerings, which include several first-in-Singapore concepts, we aim to create refreshed dining and shopping experiences for our loyal and new patrons, while strengthening Wisma Atria as one of the best lifestyle malls in the heart of town,” said a Wisma Atria spokesperson.

 
Wisma Atria whets your appetite with six new dining options
Opening in the last quarter of 2016, one of the most exciting developments in the F&B scene, is Picnic, a 10,000 sq-ft next-generation communal dining restaurant, located at Level 3. Designed to recreate the energy and vitality of outdoor dining in a dynamic ever-changing urban park within the mall, diners are promised a fully immersive dining experience. Picnic provides a range of international cuisines, including American, French, Italian and Japanese. In addition, it will also feature an in-house third-wave coffee bar and cocktail bar.  Picnic  is the latest brainchild of owner, Cheng Hsin Yao, creator of the critically acclaimed Omakase Burger brand, which is located on Level 1 of the mall. 
 
Joe & the Juice makes its debut in Orchard Road at Wisma Atria this month. Serving an array of organic  coffee, freshly made fruit and vegetable juices and rye bread sandwiches, this contemporary Danish cafe  offers a funky and healthy-packed experience to shoppers grabbing a breakfast bite or a lunch-to-go.  
 
Fans of the popular bubble tea brand, Gong Cha, may now set their sights on its newest outlet at Wisma Atria, opening in September at Basement 1. It will join the ranks of other food cluster favourites, such as Llao Llao, Ben's Cookies, Garrett popcorn and Famous Amos. 
 
There are more reasons for dessert lovers to celebrate this December, as Fruce, a coconut-based dessert-in-a drink shop, and Eyescream and Friends, a new-to-market Spanish ice cream brand, open at Basement 1. Fruce, which is created from the combination of the words ‘Fruits’ and ‘Fusion’, amalgamates tropical fruits with coconut as the key ingredient, favourite local desserts and homemade toppings, to create their signature series of beverages.  
 
As the name suggests, Eyescream and Friends will offer a visually appealing ice-cream eating experience. The ice-cream, which comes in a variety of flavours, including vanilla, chocolate, cheesecake, yoghurt, mango and strawberry, is created in cylindrical solid blocks that are frozen at -25 degree Celsius. The blocks are trimmed using a specific Asian style of shaving the ice-cream, in order to obtain layers of “shaved gelato”. As a final touch, two googly sugar candy eyes are placed on top of the “eyescream”.
 
Keep an eye on for Samurice, which offers delicious Onigiri and Bentos using specially selected rice, seaweed and salt produced and imported from Japan at the basement food cluster in January 2017. Samurice will join the family of Japanese cuisine, Kotobuki Japanese Izakaya and Japan Food Town that are currently found in Wisma Atria. 

 
Wisma Atria offers more lifestyle options with four new tenants
UK shoe brand, FitFlop, has opened their new store at Level 1 to offer exciting ergonomic sandals, shoes and boots using world-class design, a splash of fashion and a continuous innovating mix of beauty, brains and top-notch biomechanics. Now shoppers have one more worthwhile destination to satisfy their penchant for footwear!
 
Ladies searching for trendy gym apparel can pop by Vivre Activewear when it opens its third store in September at Basement 1. Vivre’s creations are specially designed for the Asian body frame and uses moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you fresh while working out. Its chic and high performance designs have also won awards.  
 
For a touch of beauty indulgence, ladies can spend some me-time or BFF-time at Qoosh Nail Spa, a new manicure and pedicure service, which has opened for business at Level 3.  
 
A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers can brighten up anyone’s day or a special occasion, such as a birthday or an anniversary. For the first time, Wisma Atria is delighted to welcome a home-grown floral shop, Xpressflower.com, into the mall at Level 1.

In addition to these new stores, Wisma Atria is also a mecca for international brands, comprising luxury timepiece brands, such as Rolex,  Franck Muller, Breguet, Blancpain, Glashuette and TAG Heuer, as well as well-loved fashion brands, such as Coach, Tory Burch, Lacoste, and many more. 
 
Tourist Privileges
Visitors from overseas can present their passports at the Concierge Counter on Level 1 and receive a $10 F&B voucher when they spend a minimum of $50 nett in a single receipt. In addition, they are also entitled to redeem a 3-day Tourist Privilege Card that entitles them to discounts and special offers at participating stores in Wisma Atria.
