We gave you some insight on what it was like for the ladies to film ‘Sex and The City’ but its time to hear what we can expect. Here’s some tidbits from the NewNowNext interview with the Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, Miranda.
Sarah Jessica Parker: The movie doesn’t pick up right where the series ended, it's a few years later, which makes everything—well, in terms of Carrie’s life specifically, there's much more at stake. There’s a lot more time invested in her relationship with Big, and obviously in her friendships, her career and what she thinks is the destination point in her life.
The story—which is like the whole series—is about friendship and growing up and the decisions we make and the triumphs. And it's about the massive disappointment and the mistakes, and what you learn and what you don’t learn when you should learn. A lot of this movie is going to be surprising to people. This is a grown-up movie.
Things happen in this movie that are very… Basically, it's about the despair you feel when you’re 20 versus the despair you feel or the loss you feel when you’re 40, and they are vastly different. And the movie really addresses it, and it really looks at how important your friendships are.
The movie is just so packed with stuff. And something major happens that fundamentally changes who Carrie is. She’s a new person in a lot of ways in this movie, because she finds herself at the crucible for the first time. Everything is different.
Cynthia Nixon: Miranda is still in Brooklyn, is still unhappy about it, and still advancing at her job, in her firm. Her son is thriving but her marriage is kind of mmmmm—not doing so great. We are dealing with unfaithfulness, but even more than unfaithfulness, I think we are just dealing with the daily grind that can take its toll on a relationship.
Miranda also has her mother-in-law who has Alzheimer’s to care for, which takes up a lot of time. So I think that just the relationship suffers, the relationship is the dispensable thing on the back burner.
Kristin Davis: Charlotte is trying to be a good mother. She has her adopted daughter, and she’s an overachiever so #1 in her mind would be to be a good mother and friend, and a good wife, too. My fear is that there are no surprises left. People are going to pay to see it and I hope there will be something that will be a surprise.
Cynthia Nixon: We're all kind of further along in our lives. But I also think two things: One is that in order to justify our coming back, and also being on the big screen, we need to have big stories. They can't be about "I'm dating a guy and he’s got funky spunk!" That’s funny, but that’s not going to carry us through the film.
So I think the stakes are really, really high. And I also feel like the way we, the four characters deal with each other, is more mature than it was. None of us are single anymore. We're all in our own little “queendoms” and we come together again, but it’s really on a more mature level.
Kim Cattrall: Samantha is older, we all are. And that in itself is huge. It’s a huge struggle in our world, still. And that’s why I am so happy to be of a certain age playing a woman of a certain age. We changed the way people thought about 40, so maybe we can do that with 50 and maybe 60, hopefully...
