Busting the Block: Does Sex and the City Have the Power?

Sex and the City castWith mega-hits like Indiana Jones also premiering this summer, what chance does the female-oriented really have for big box office numbers? A somewhat raunchy cable show that ran on a network which worshiped The Sopranos, Sex enjoyed its fair share of popularity during its six-year stint. But come on, four years have gone by. Could Sex really make it to the status of summer blockbuster?

If the New York crowds which gathered for every single day of shooting, all waving cameras and screaming their heads off, are any indication, the Sexy movie could surpass all expectations and change everything we know about a series-turned-cinema event. “Crowd control was difficult to deal with,” said on filming the movie (largely based in New York City, as was the series). “It’s a wonderful problem to have that kind of interest; it was exciting to have that energy around us.”

Creator Darren Star and executive producer Michael Patrick King have each said they wanted the series to seem more like a movie - which is why it was often shot on the streets of New York with glossy, careful direction. That’s why Star thinks the series lends itself beautifully to a run on the silver screen.

The movie has had it’s (er, it’s had three), and all that’s left now is a big opening weekend. It all happens Friday.

Sex and the City Premieres in London

Sex and the City premiereCynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Sarah Jessica Parker made their Sexy stroll down the red carpet for the first premiere of their movie in London. The movie will celebrate two more premieres before it comes to theaters May 30.

As thousands of moviegoers screamed “We want Sarah!”, the ladies made their entrance. One BBC reporter cried to American journalists that it was “the biggest turnout to a red carpet premiere anyone has ever seen!”

SJP wore a strapless green gown designed by Alexander McQueen, topped off with a floral motif cap designed by England’s Philip Treacy. Kim Cattrall, sporting an upswept ‘do, wore a red Vivienne Westwood dress, while Kristin Davis was highly formal in Guy Laroche. Cynthia Nixon was daring in a glittering black gown. 

As to the movie, that remains under wraps until the world premiere (still scheduled for May 30).

Three-Stop Premiere for SATC Movie

Sex and the CityThe much-anticipated movie will make its first premiere on May 12 in London’s Leichester Square. May 15 will see the flick in Berlin for another premiere. Then, after all the Sexy secrets are spilled, it will finally make its way home to New York for a premiere party on known territory (May 27).

Sex movie talk centers around the mysterious death, a plot point “leaked” by in a recent interview. Other possible plot points have been bantered around by entertainment shows. I’ve seen the clips, and Cynthia Nixon looks great in the movie. But who’s destined to leave the franchise for ever? Let’s look at the possible candidates.

As to the soundtrack, current gossip says that Fergie and Jennifer Hudson (who will play Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant in the film) will both record new tunes. But the real Sex scoop was released by , a.k.a. Miranda Hobbs. This certain redhead let it slip on April 15 that “a character dies in the movie.” Enter panic mode now.

Here are some possible suggestions for your upcoming weekend:

New Sex and the City Trailer

Sex and the CityFinally - a more substantive glance at the upcoming Movie! 

While I will undoubtedly watch the release, I must say the newest trailer gives the film a much darker tone than I would have liked to see.  (You can view it for yourself, after the jump.)  Is it because the show is best served on the small screen?  Should the series only be viewed in 30-minute snippets?  Is the teaser simply a bad representation?  (Oh, I hope so.)

Regardless, the clip does give us a few juicy tidbits:

  • Apparently Mr. Big’s (full) name is John James Preston.  (I think I like him better when he’s not an actual person.)
  • It looks like Steve may have cheated on Miranda.  (The Steve I know would never do something like that.)
  • Commitment-phobe Samantha may be wandering from Smith Jerrod.
  • Charlotte is indeed pregant.  (She adopted that kid for nothing.)
  • And last but not least, Carrie’s planned wedding to Big falls apart?

Be looking for SATC to hit theaters this May 30.

‘Sex and the City’ Trailer

Sex & the City screenshot: wedding dressThe Sex and the City movie trailer has finally arrived, and it’s just as promising and exciting as fans could want. It begins with a voice-over and a wide, sweeping view of Manhattan, then quickly falls into an image free-for-all while the theme music blares invitingly. Quick screenshots flash past, showing images inside Carrie’s apartment, the four girls walking together, and a photo shoot where Carrie sports the much-touted wedding dress. As the music ends, the final scene shows a steamy kiss between Carrie and Mr. Big. All of it leads up to the promise that the movie will debut May of 2008.

Behind the scenes of Sex and the City

Sex & the City Sex & the City left HBO when the series was still highly popular, at the top of its game. When any successful show leaves the air, it causes questions…and confusion for fans who are left wanting more. It wasn’t until after the Sex was all over that the rumors surfaced and the interviews began. Reportedly, the series ended because of star squabbling - namely, Kim Cattrall. The actress who was loved on the small screen as Samantha Jones allegedly wanted to receive the same amount of pay as the show’s star, Sarah Jessica Parker (a.k.a. Carrie Bradshaw). And that’s when everything fell apart. The series ended amid much hype, HBO tributes, and tons of press. But even then, there were whispers that there might be more Sex to come.

Until that, too, fell apart. Again, it was reported that the Sex & the City movie’s progress was stymied by Kim Cattrall, who refused to do the project. And millions of women were disappointed. Three years after the final farewell, the Sexy movie is back on – with, yes, all four leading ladies as part of the cast. But has time softened the hard feelings that plagued the series? According to on-set reports, no.
