The Sex and the City Movie was originally only going to have a New York movie premiere, but the suits at New Line have decided to have its world premiere in London--reportedly because of the weakness of the U.S. dollar.
Columnist Elizabeth Snead said, "If you had to bet where 'Sex and the City: The Movie' would premiere, you'd probably put money on New York, right?"
"That's where the New York Observer columnist Candace Bushnall wrote those spicy columns that the series was based on."
"There are so many fashion merchandising tie-ins with the film that I guess London is seen as vital to the success of the campaign. The American economy and dollar are so weak right now that the studio seems to realize that London was the place to be."
