Angelina Jolie or Elizabeth Taylor? Who is the best Cleopatra? Because a new movie about Cleopatra VII of Egypt is going to be film right now.

Starring by Elizabeth Taylor, Cleopatra by Joseph L. Mankiewicz is a 1963 British-American-Swiss epic movie, also romantic and something dramatic. The screenplay was adapted by Sidney Buchman, Ben Hecht, Ranald MacDougall, and Mankiewicz from a book by Carlo Maria Franzero which tells the fights of the queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt to face the ambitions of Rome. Cast included Richard Burton, Rex Harrison, Roddy McDowall, and Martin Landau. The music score was by Alex North and was photographed in 70 mm Todd-AO by Leon Shamroy and an uncredited Jack Hildyard. A blockbuster! It cost $44 million and won four Academy awards.

Elizabeth Taylor is (as always) incredible beautiful wearing those luxurious exotic dresses and although she played coldly, she still convinces.

Our next Cleopatra VII is going to be played by Angelina Jolie, who has already played a similar role as Olympia, the mother of Alexander by Oliver Stone. Ang Lee is going to be the director (although they had thought of David Fincher, Paul Greengrass and James Cameron).

Precisely Ang Lee (The Life of Pi) has just said the Hollywood Reporter: “I’m about to read the script. It just feels right to me after all the other types of films I’ve done, What does it have in common with any of them? They’re all totally different! That’s what makes this perfect.”

Then, Will Angelina Jolie be better or worse than Elizabeth Taylor? Both of them are handsome and have some amazing eyes. Who do you prefer?

Difficult choice!

    I think both of them. I would have rather seen Halle Berry as Cleopatra. I loved seeing Liz Taylor portray Cleopatra in that movie when I saw it as a youngster (my younger cousin thought it was too long and never let me forget that I took him to see it.) And Angelina is awesome, so she will do a great job portraying Cleopatra.

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
