Sex And The City Movie Has A Date
On May 30, guys, you know what to do

Girls, if you’re reading this, you have permission to leap up and down in excitement, clapping your hands together rapidly like living Energiser bunnies. You may even squeal in excitement – because now you know what you’ll be doing on May 30 next year.

Guys, if you’re reading this, you have permission to groan, slump back in your seat and scratch your balls in resignation (what’s that? You were scratching your balls anyway) – because now you know what you’ll be doing on May 30 next year, if you want a quiet life.

And that, of course, is taking your girlfriends/wives/life partners/internet brides to see the long-awaited Sex And The City movie, which will open on… May 30, it was confirmed today.

However, that’s just in the States, and there’s no word yet on a UK release date, but we expect it to be around the same time, which would pit the return of Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie, the crap journalist one), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda, the ginger one), Kristin Davis (Charlotte, the cute one with the pixie nose) and Kim Cattrall (Samantha, the nympho one) against Eddie Murphy’s Starship Dave. So, clash of the titans, then.

More news has filtered out about the movie, namely that it’ll take place four years after the final episode of the HBO series. Chris Noth – aka Mr. Big – has signed on to co-star, along with Jennifer Hudson – aka Miss Reall [Don’t go there – Ed.] - who will play Carrie’s assistant, which indicates that SJP’s character has gone up in the world somewhat.

So, ladies, start queuing now (even if it does hurt a bit, standing around in your Manolos). And guys? Oh, you’re already scratching your balls. And picking your nose. Don’t go changin’!

(Empire would like to make it clear that it was indulging in stereotypes for this article, and that it knows that not all guys hate SATC; nor do all girls love it. Please don’t throw a hissy)

Yeah, ok, so it's 2008, not 2004. Well done you! If you insist on being a pedant and correcting peoples mistakes, maybe you should take the time to make sure what you have written has been spelt correctly! "Alos"? What does that mean? Flid! Incidentally, SJP looks a state and I couldn't give 2 fucks about this film. More

They're a bit past it now.   Sarah Jessica Parker looks like an alien in that picture.   Basically granny porn like Basic Instinct 2.     More

Quite frankly
nobody gives a flying fuck anymore. SATC's gig of the collective neuroses of a bunch of upwardly mobile rabbit abusers has given way to 'Desparate Housewives' which is about, erm, the collective neuroses of a bunch of stay-at-home rabbit abusers. By then folk will see just how dated the concept has become in just three years. More

RE: Impressive.
What a perfect time to release a Sex & The City film.  Strike while the iron's hot.  It may be over over 3 years since the show finished and the cast have gone on to bigger and better things on the back of its seemingly timeless popularity, ie frig all.    No doubt the makers have taken into consideration that its viewers have moved on to other shallow fads at least three times over and will bring us something up to the standard of the spirit More

You may slap each other on the back, but you may also want to get the fuel line fixed on the delorean as it'll be euro 2008, not 2004. sorry to be a pedant but that was pretty stupid, and no one else has picked it up yet, so i can be smug. alos, scratching your balls is only fun if some veneral diseaes is involved. Everyone knows that Empire Empire. More

Too Late
Does anyone even like Sex and the City anymore? While it seemed okay when it was on, let's face it, if you watch it now it's kind of boring. Who really wants this film? Oh right, the people who want the big fat paycheck! Sorry to sound cynical! More

Good timing
If they hold this back a week or two in Europe it will coincide nicely with Euro 2004. Giving us guys a chance to bugger off down the pub while the missus and her covenant skip down to Odeon. I never thought I would say this but thank you Sex And The City! More

No one will care
Who will really want to see four aging women in ludicrous outfits drink cocktails and talk about shoes? Especially since they have had absolutely no careers since the TV series finished? It only worked because people could watch it after dinner at home ... I can't imagine people going out and paying £10 for this nonsense. More
