Film Synopsis
In a future where time is literally money and aging stops at 25, the only way to stay alive is to earn, steal, or inherit more time.  Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) lives minute-to-minute, until a windfall of time gives him access to the world of the wealthy, where he teams up with a beautiful young heiress (Amanda Seyfried) to destroy the corrupt system.

 Justin Timberlake Will Salas 

Amanda Seyfried is Sylvia Weis



Cillian Murphy is Timekeeper, Leon




On the run for their lives. Every second counts.



How to tell the difference between the rich and the poor in IN TIME? The rich do not have to rush.



Taking chances.



You hope to do something foolish when you are young, but are you sure you are not going to regret it in the future?


Over the rooftops, the running never stops.



"Nobody should live forever." - Find out who said that and why.

How much is that doggie by the window?

Woof! Woof! Hello there! Do you love animals? Do you have any pets? If you do, why not share your pet’s photo with us on our COCO blog or Facebook.

In a blink of eye, we’ve reached the month of August and here’s a Bow Wow from our little paw friend – Coco.

Isn’t she adorable? *Drools* That’s Coco striking a pose. You must be wondering, how did she get her name? Well, she wasn’t named Coco on purpose for sure. As told by the owner, this breed of Toy poodle is originated from France and therefore, drawing inspiration from the world-renowned French fashion designer, Coco Chanel, she was thus named Coco!

Born on 11th January 2011, this tomboyish fur ball weighs at 3.5kg and enjoys eating chick gristle. Do you know that the Toy Poodle have a cheerful and lively personality that thrives human companionship? Coco displays similar traits as she will always be game for a walk with her owner. We say that’s a clever trick to spend more quality time with your owner, right Coco?

“To you he is a dog, but to them you are everything”. Read more about how to take care of pets at http://www.spca.org.sg/

How about some belly rubs now, anyone?
