Entertainment behind the scenes
The bold PR exec Samantha, portrayed by actress Kim Cattrall, is shown multitasking in ther Times Square office — on the phone with a client and working on her Hewlett-Packard computer with one hand, and applying a hormonal cream to her menopausal self with the other.
Judging from the audience’s laughter at the world premiere in Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall, this will be one of the sequel’s most memorable scenes, especially for “Sex and the City” fans of a certain demographic.
Another HP product, designer Vivienne Tam’s “Butterfly Lovers” laptop, gets a nanosecond of screen time with Samantha in another scene. Blink — and you might miss it.
Cast members in the Radio City audience on premiere night included Chris Noth (Mr. Big), John Corbett (Aidan) and Liza Minnelli (herself).
Set to the ubiquitous Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ tribute to a dazzling New York, the “Sex and the City 2” promotional trailer was released Friday, and fans were left salivating at the prospect that the ladies, who always loved cosmos, are rapidly turning into ladies who love many other things. That is, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) are returning with more babies, and another exotic trip, this time to the Middle East.
But the biggest surprise in the long trailer (which you can watch below) was the appearance of John Corbett, aka Aiden, who, coincidentally seems to be strolling through Abu Dhabi at the same time as Carrie and bumps into her tanned and in a light shirt, cooing, “This is the best mirage that I have ever had.”
