It's all about clashes between superheroes this spring
Army Dazed
We probe into the dark recesses of Gilbert Chan`s mind to get an insight into his inspiration for making 23:59, his personal encounters with the supernatural, and his talent for scaring hapless army boys so badly that they weep uncontrollably in the toilet (No, we`re not making up that last bit!)

The movie has some truly hair-raising scenes; did you have any similar experiences during NS to inspire you in thinking up the horror sequences?
Actually, strange experiences did happen to me when I was writing the script. There was once when I was writing late into the night, about 3 am. All of a sudden, I could hear furniture being dragged across the floor right above me. It was so loud that I stopped writing and went to sleep. The next day, I went upstairs to my neighbour to speak to them about the noise. This old Indian lady opened the door. She told me that only she and her husband were staying in the apartment and they slept really early. And it was impossible that they were shifting their furniture so late at night! My hair kind of stood when I heard that.

Jumping aboard the latest instalment of a franchise spawning two and a half billion dollars and featuring a legendary, beloved comic book character would be daunting enough on its own, but setting out to make a film grounded in the real world, one featuring a someone who puts the hero back in superhero? That takes real guts.
Here in Singapore, we’re hooked on a feeling and high on believing after director James Gunn and stars Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista journeyed from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to our sunny shores.
In Suicide Squad, the highly-anticipated third entry in the DC Extended Universe, a team of volatile superheroes are doing what doesn’t come naturally to any of them: saving the day. Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Enchantress, El Diablo, Slipknot and Killer Croc, wrangled by Rick Flag and his bodyguard Katana, comprise “Task Force X” – assembled by government official Amanda Waller, they are coerced into running errands for, ostensibly, the side of good.
"I'm actually very, very willing to be goofy and act a little childish. But I think the media just see a different side to me." - Fan Bingbing
HBO’s sci-fi drama series Westworld has riveted viewers across the globe. Sure, the violence and sexuality we’ve come to expect from the premium cable channel has raised some eyebrows. However, the show’s heady existential questions, gut-punch twists and commentary on how humanity coexists with technology have provoked much thought. The show, based on the Michael Crichton film of the same name, expands on and updates the ideas explored in the 1973 movie.
With its wanton swearing, sexual situations, sometimes-graphic violence and yes, depictions of terrorism, She’s a Terrorist and I Love Her doesn’t sound like a typical Singapore-made comedy series. That’s exactly why its makers are hoping it will shake things up. The series is the first Singaporean show to...
