‘Sex and the City 3’: A Trilogy or a Tragedy?

'Sex and the City 3': A Trilogy or a Tragedy?

Sex and the City’ has been nothing short of a phenomenon.  From the onset, the series, the girls and the city they lived in was an immediate hit, drawing millions of viewers to HBO, later TBS and now the Box Office. The draw is one that is still strong today 12 years later.  Proof of this can be seen on Perry Street in the West Village, where one is almost guaranteed to see fans, mostly young and middle aged women, posing in front of a chained-off townhouse with a sign reading “NO TRESPASSING”.

After some deconstruction of the phenomenon,  I believe it really boils down to 3 things: fabulousity, nostalgia and hope.

You can say whatever you want about the recent movie ‘Sex and the City 2’ … but one thing is for sure is that the power of the brand remains strong.  

So strong that I agree with Sarah Jessica that they should complete the trilogy with a third and final run.

My advice to her though is to remember the three things that made you.
1- Fabulousity. We want fabulousity but we want it to feel real. Abu Dhabi was fun, but in hindsight the Hamptons may have been more authentic.  
2- Nostalgia.  Tap into this powerful emotion, but do it remembering to be relevant today.  Why did we relate? who did we relate to? But keep it real. Don’t go over the top with the characters and don’t forget the times.
3- Hope. Here you have been nailing it.  At the end of the day, whatever twists and turns life puts in front of Carrie and her posse… they survive and thrive, holding their cosmos in bejeweled hands.

So here is to the final ‘Sex and the City 3.’  One with “NO TRESPASSING”.

Jennifer Lopez in ‘Sex and the City’ sequel?

Jennifer Lopez in 'Sex and the City' sequel?

Jennifer Lopez wants to appear in the next ‘Sex and the City’ movie.’

‘The Wedding Planner’ star was a huge fan of the hit US TV show, and always wanted a cameo role, but is now hoping to be cast in the movie sequel. She is quoted as saying: “I adore the show and nearly popped up in the TV show, but then did ‘Will and Grace’ instead.”

A source said: “Jennifer has got her heart set on joining Carrie and the girls. The bosses are trying to think of a way of fitting her in without it being cheesy.” If Jennifer gets her wish, she wouldn’t be the first celebrity to appear in ‘Sex and the City’.

Actress Heather Graham and supermodel Heidi Klum both played themselves in past episodes. Former Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell appeared on the show in 2003, while her ex-bandmate Victoria Beckham is rumoured to have been lined up for the next film.

Sex and the City: The Movie will have a part 2

Sex and the City: The Movie will have a part 2

Where to celebrate the launch of the Sex and the City: The Movie DVD?

Why, the same place where, in the film, Carrie Bradshaw gets stood up at the altar. Thursday night, the film’s stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon reconvened at the New York Public Library, which was lit up in pink and decorated with a custom-made interlocking-C white Chanel couch.

A radiant and friendly Parker, in Alexander McQueen, said she was ecstatic that her film was one of the year’s blockbusters. “I was surprised and thrilled and gratified and shocked,” said Parker. “I think we felt very honored that people connected to the story.”

Said Cattrall: “This has been an amazing year. It’s poignant that the year after we started shooting, the DVD is coming out. It just seems to get better.”

And now, word is, there’s a sequel in the works.

“I guess there’s been a lot of talk except that Michael Patrick and I haven’t spoken,” said Parker, referring to the film’s writer and director Michael Patrick King. “We’re going to have a conversation sooner rather than later. If Michael feels there’s a story worthy of an audience leaving their home and plunking down a significant amount of money for a ticket, then I assume we’ll move forward. We feel very indebted to this audience and it would be a disservice to them to make a movie because we can.”

If a second installment of Sex comes to fruition, Parker wants it to “be thoughtful and something that has some meaning — (we want) to tell a good story and produce it well.”

Cattrall too hopes it happens. “The deal is they’re making the deal and Michael Patrick King is writing the script. I don’t envy him that task. I’m very excited because Samantha is single and that’s real fun to play,” she said.
