It’s an outrage, pure and simple. Sex and the City: The Movie’s first showing is on May 12 in London’s Leicester Square.
New Line is rationalizing that it’s not really the premiere because the whole cast won’t be there. Just Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Catrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. Chris Noth isn’t attending, so none of it counts.
Since when is it all about Mr. Big? Who do they think they’re kidding?
After all the support New York has given this enterprise, I can’t believe they’re dissing it this way. The movie doesn’t open in Manhattan until May 27 at Radio City Music Hall.
I’ve also read that NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s cameo appearance ended up on the cutting room floor.
It came as a relief when someone decided to skip Cannes because it means one less chance for the whole plot to leak out, but you know how the British tabloids are. We’ll be lucky if there’s anything left to know about the film before it opens in U.S. movie theaters on May 30.
To add insult to injury, the soundtrack is being released in Germany on May 23, but not until May 27 in the U.S.
I’m wondering where they got the idea that Europe made the show a big hit before it caught on here. To express my disgust, I’d like to stay home and wait for the DVD – but I know that’s not going to happen. Damn them!
