Kim wearing glasses and dressed in a dark suit and Trump sporting a red tie shook hands in front of the cameras at around 9:00 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) at the luxury Capella hotel on Sentosa resort island off the southern tip of the city state. The North Korean's outfit reads, "I STARVED MY PEOPLE TO MAKE THIS MISSILE". "We're going to have a great discussion and a terrific relationship".

The two leaders will be meeting to talk about the nuclear disarmament of North Korea and establishing a framework for peace in East Asia.

Shots of the Colosseum in Rome and the Great Wall of China give way to a North Korean flag before Trump and Kim appear.

Castaldo, who identifies politically as Independent, says his company produces "inspirational" movies that "have something to say", and doesn't think Trump's film quite fit the bill for his stamp of approval.

Footage from the event shows United States president and the North Korean leader preparing to take their seats on opposite sides of a dining room table at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

The much-anticipated summit marked the first ever meeting between a top DPRK leader and a sitting US president.

The leaders met Tuesday for a historic summit that Trump had touted in recent weeks as a chance for the pair to get to know one another. As a Time report said, "Korean is a language with strict rules regarding formality, especially in terms of how leaders are addressed, a challenge that is only compacted because of Trump's informal style of discourse and Kim's position as the "supreme leader" of a totalitarian country".

Trump abruptly canceled his planned June 12 meeting with Kim in late May, citing "tremendous anger and open hostility" displayed by Pyongyang's recent remarks.

After the talks, the U.S. president said that the process of denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula will begin very soon and the North Korean leader promised to leave the past behind. "I showed it to him today, actually during the meeting, toward the end of the meeting and I think he loved it".

The North Korea leader added that the "world would see a major change".

"It will be hard for this meeting to agree on specific deals but it carries considerable significance as a starting point", he said.
