Natural Disasters in Cinema

Natural Disasters in Cinema. Nobody can stop thinking about Hurricane Sandy, wishing everyone in the northeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. states safety during these days. Good luck and we are sure that everything will be O.K. in a week.

Natural Disasters. 2012

Natural Disasters. 2012

Films and movies have tried the topic. In the end, natural disasters are part of our lives and we have to be prepared to face them. Sometimes thinking of the consequences and trying to prevent them, some others smiling in front of the tragedy, because it gives us the strength to overcome it. We are sure, again, all will be in calm in some days.

How have movies seen natural disasters?

1.- 2012 (2009).
After the E.T. intelligence destroyed Washington in Independence Day, Roland Emmerich -a real filmmaker star in this kind of films- gave us the final disaster movie: the Sistine Chapel… Manhattan, Mexico and Los Angeles… and finally the whole world. However, it looks like the world continues after 2012, because the world cannot die.
With John Cusack, Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet and Oliver Platt.

Here, some images of the film.

2.- Day After Tomorrow (2004)

I’ve seen this film years ago (of course, directed by Roland Emmerich). This time we will go with Dennis Quaid (dull performance). He is a climatologist called Jack Hall. The impressive images almost cannot let us watch Dennis Quaid and, no, I am not being ironic and I don’t want to qualify the acting of Dennis Quaid as a ‘natural disaster’. Come on, Dennis, you can do it!

3.- Armageddon (1998), Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck cannot make a bad movie, or they can?

I’ve seen this movie several times. It’s supposed that it isn’t funny but I cannot stop laughing when I see these two ‘great’ actors working together. Anyway, the song by Aerosmith was good.
The idea is this: a team of rough oil drillers drop a nuclear warhead into the core of the meteorite. And this is only the beginning.

4.- Deep Impact

I don’t know why but I liked this movie. Directed by Mimi Leder and staring by Elijah Wood, Téa Leoni, Morgan Freeman, and Robert Duvall. I would vote for Morgan Freeman… and if you have watched the previews trailers you should discover this yet: the natural disasters always finish equal in the movies: NYC is destroyed again and the world has to start for its ashes.

5.- Twelve monkeys

Terry Gillian with Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. Maybe it’s the best film we have mentioned –of course, NYC destroyed-. Great screenplay and Brad Pitt is simply great. In fact, the only movie of these five that I can recommend like a good movie.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
