Sex and the City
16,000 reasons why they may Never watch SATC againMay 29, 2008
And the Sex and the City stories keep on rolling. This one is a particular favorite because of how clueless Hollywood can be. Two completely Carrie addicted Sex and the City fans spent $16,000 to attend the premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York. This is not counting the money they spent on tickets flying all the way from the west coast of CANADA to New York. When they got to the front of the already long line they were told in no uncertain terms and unceremoniously, there was no more space and they could take their $16,000 tickets and stick it where the sun of god don’t shine (ok that’s hyperbole, but you get the picture). In the end it seems that Carrie Bradshaw and her girls trampled over fans with their Manolos.
So are they pissed? You betcha. Instead of spending $16,000 for tickets now the total price is going to come out to $16,020. $20 for the two tickets they’ll have to spend watching it in Canada. Grr Carrie…GRRRR.
Guys Might Not Want to See SexMay 28, 2008
Variety has an article today wondering whether men will go out to see Sex and the City. This blog can answer that question for you right now. No. That is unless they have girlfriends and even then, Sex and the City may not necessarily be a couples-type outing. Superbowl Champion Quarterback Eli Manning and his newlywed wife aside, for men have been somewhat frosty to this whole movie. Even our sometimes girly publisher Sam is avoiding this movie like the plague. While not going into detail as the Variety article title suggests, the only glimmer of hope for the movie may be that its chick flick counterpart Devil Wears Prada actually did pretty well in the male demographic, all things considered. The movie opens (yeah like you didn’t know already) Thursday at midnight.

Bitten Redux…againMay 22, 2008
They just won’t let this thing die. Never let it be said that Sarah Jessica Parker doesn’t know how to milk the very milk from a project. She’s milking the milk folks. This conclusion is arrived at by looking at her most recent collection for her Bitten line at Steve and Barry’s. Time to coincide with the release of the Sex and the City movie, this Heidiwood-quality line leaves one wondering exactly whether she’s sipping from the same Kool-Aid she’s trying to serve. Most likely not methinks.Eva
…and the CityMay 21, 2008
Although this is an international item and to be sure iPapier would have covered this, there’s no mistaking how deliciously fun, cute and censored this news item is. Two towns in Israel are refusing to have Sex and the City advertisements placed on billboards anywhere in the vicinity of the city limits. It can still play as-is in the theaters, but the movie we have come to know and abhor through the constant promotion all over the place (secretly some people are hoping the Chronicles of Narnia or some other movie makes this the number 2 movie the weekend of release) will simply be known as “…and the City”.
So get your movie tickets now for “…and the City.”
Sex and the City in LondonMay 13, 2008
It happens very rarely, but it does happen. London will get a movie before it premieres in the States. That happened last night at the Sex and the City premiere in London. The stars were out on the Red Carpet and the cast of the movie was there in full force. Sarah Jessica Parker posits that the reason the premiere was done in London is because they have such great food…we kid. She’s been quoted as having a love hate relationship with New York. According to Parker, she plays a role (however minor) in New York’s overexposure. She feels that the city is overpriced and is lacking in character (reports of a Wal-mart being placed somewhere in New York may be greatly exaggerated).
Parker apparently has never been in the tube or taken public transportation in London. Things are expensive in that city if not more so. But what’s expense to a person who has a cut of the profits of a multi-million dollar film? Not much. Not much at all.Karen Ehrenström
Sex and the City Watch: Day 99May 7, 2008
No there is no real Sex and the City Watch going on, but there might as well be all things considered. This movie is getting more buzz than The Devil Wears Prada. It’s not hard to see why as every sort of minutiae is being thrown in from what the characters eat, to the actual wedding scenes (that wasn’t a spoiler), to the designers being used. In this vein The LA Times blog looks at Pat Fields magician-like precision when it comes to striking the tone between the Carrie Bradshaw that was and the Carrie Bradshaw that is now. She looks at the character several years later and her fashion tastes have not so much grown as she as evolved”. Fields is quoted as saying,
“I saw Carrie a little more sexy, a little more evolved, a little more calm with herself as a woman, she was still going through her eclectic things, and she was gaining in her profession.”
The movie comes out at the end of May. To read more of the fashion production notes visit the LA Times blog here.Eva
