Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is one of the best action movies I’ve seen in the last times. Review by Isabel del Rio.

Except for the title, this is a great movie of action and adventures. I really enjoy the film and I particularly enjoy the way they mix historical facts and fantastic elements. The movie is a good metaphor, very well written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Then, the author of the novel… What a coincidence! Sometimes is good the scripts were written by true writers!

The important and historical figure of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States (1861–1865), is portrayed in the novel and, of course, in the film as having a secret identity as a vampire hunter. Does it sound stupid? Yes, it does, but in fact this is a metaphor of Lincoln’s necessity of fighting against bad people (slavers) and to claim for freedom: until we are all free, no one will. Then, all the important events of his life are in the movie: his difficult childhood, his law studies, his marriage to Mary Todd, the death of his children, his political struggles, the Civil War… but mixing legendary elements and the attractive topic of the vampires, a good topic in cinema if you know how manage its plastic references. Photography and special effects are also fantastic.

The rhythm of the film is engrossing and even adults are absorbing by the power of so many perfect scenes passing quickly in front of them.

Cast is fantastic too: Benjamin Walker is Abraham Lincoln and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Mary Todd Lincoln, but I really appreciate the work of Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturges, Lincoln’s mentor in vampire hunting.

I love this movie. If you have the chance don’t miss Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

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
