When U.S. President Donald Trump sat down to make the case for peace to North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, he rolled out what amounted to a movie trailer starring the two leaders.

Trump said he urged Kim and other North Korean officials to watch a four-minute video produced ahead of the summit in Singapore. Trump said Kim and other senior members of the North Korean delegation huddled around an iPad to watch the video, which appeared to draw more from the hype of Hollywood than the careful language of diplomacy.

Kim's late father and predecessor, Kim Jong Il, was a noted Hollywood film buff, with a special affection for director Steven Spielberg and actress Elizabeth Taylor and an extensive video library to match, according to defectors and intelligence agencies.

White House officials also arranged for Tuesday's video to be played for reporters gathered for Trump's news conference.

Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he met with other world leaders whose countries make up the Group of Seven. Part of the interest in Tuesday's summit is simply because Kim has had limited appearances on the world stage.

The video plays over a pulsing orchestral score, and appears to be composed almost entirely of generic stock footage and old news clips, including images of Trump and Kim smiling. Both an English- and Korean-language version were made, with the narrator in the latter having a South Korean accent.

At one point, it features a montage with babies and car factories, suggesting what a more prosperous future for North Korea could look like if it agreed to give up its nuclear arsenal. To illustrate the point, ballistic missiles are shown in reverse motion, pulling back into their launch silos.

"The past doesn't have to be the future," a narrator says as the video showed the demilitarized zone that has separated North and South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

Then later, the narrator says, "a new world can begin today," as an animated sequence suggests what the impoverished North Korea could look like from space if it was as brightly lit up at night as the far more prosperous South Korea.

At times, the video appeared to address Kim directly, suggesting he could make a choice that would open North Korea to new investment and step into a starring role in a moment in history with Trump.

"Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un, in a meeting to remake history, to shine in the sun," the narrator says. "One moment. One choice. What if?"

The credit on the video said it was produced by Destiny Pictures. Representatives for a production company with that name based in Los Angeles did not respond to requests for comment. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the film's production.
