Sex And The City 2 Pre-Sale Outsells Released Movies!

Why are people so excited for this movie?? The first one didn't hold a candle to the original series!!

Pre-sale tickets for the May 27th premiere of Sex and the City 2 are already on sale - six weeks in advance! And it's already out-selling movies playing in theaters NOW!

According to Fandango spokesman Harry Medved:

"It was nearly 20% of our daily sales when it first went on sale, outpacing (new box office champ) 'Kick-Ass,' which was 17% of sales. We saw surprisingly strong advance ticket sales on the first one, with many female moviegoers buying tickets en masse, planning screening parties for groups of friends who were flying in from out of town."

Regal Theater's Marketing Head Dick Westerling agrees:

"Women across the country are anxious to plan events and activities related to their evening out to see the film, and they want confirmation that they have tickets. Based on our experience with the first film, this can become quite an elaborate and fun-filled evening. Aside from purchasing tickets to see the movie, they are already reserving limousines and making restaurant reservations."

We suppose we should never underestimate the middle aged housewive's undying need to feel fabulous! It's half the reason Twilight does so well, too.

BARF.

    Zzzzz…zzzz…zzzzzzzzzzz

    I don't think a gay man wrote this post. Gay men would understand all the hoopla surrounding this movie. The truth is that everyone needs to feel fabulous and part of something bigger than they are. Men get it through sports and their superbowl weekend or whatever; women get it through this. Both are a bit over the top if you ask me.



  3. 3

    i don't get it either….it's gonna be a botox overload



  4. 4

    This Is just great ! A show made by RUMP RANGERS THAT PORTRAY WOMEN AS SLUTS !
    TAKE A BOW MARIO YOU SELF LOATHING QUEEN !

    Just another reason why the world hates america.

    Perez u surprise me!! I thought u were just excited as the rest of us to see this movie! U always talk so much good things about the first movie and are always hyped in ur posts about the second movie, and now u post this? somethin wrong wit u!



  6. 6

    I wasn't interested in seeing the first movie, but the trailers for the sequel have sparked my interest and I look forward to seeing it.



  7. 7

    Wait, so you're telling me that a heavily hyped, awaited summer film is selling a lot of tickets?

    NO SHIT

    Ok, here's the deal. "Sex and the City 2" is first off a blockbuster for women, and that demographic is pretty starved right about now. Second, it's one of the few big summer releases to actually have pre-sale tickets available right now. I still can't get "Iron Man 2" tickets not yet. So of course the movie is selling through the roof at the moment.

    Oh and apparently the first movie was a girl's night out type thing when it was released 2 years back. People (for example my mom & her friends included) went to dinner, then to a club, then to the movie. I'm dead serious, those "SATC" fans make this an event. Good for them.



  8. 8

    I think the thing about the Sex and the City movies is that you don't have to be a super fan of the show to enjoy them. They never claimed to be making a copy of the show when they did the movies nor do I want to see that. I love the movies because they take the characters we all love just with a different feel to the flow of the movie. I am so excited to see the SITC 2!!!

    On a side note, I can understand why hardcore fans are not thrilled with the movie…..but I don't care because I love it!



  9. 9

    Your opinion isn't "fact" Perez. A lot of people loved the movie, as I did and I can't wait for the 2nd.



  10. 10

    lol "middle aged housewives"? Everyone I know who is excited for this movie is in their 20s.



  11. 11

    I have loved Sex in the City–but its time to reach menopause ladies!



  12. 12

    i hate when we don't agree on things.



  13. 13

    perez can you and all your writers meet up and agree on what you guys are gonna love and what ur gonna trash…..



  14. 14

    Maybe if women contributed to paying their half of the mortgage in relationships instead of buying this shit… SHIT LIKE THIS WOULDN'T GET MADE!!! Bitches… start being team-players, instead of having men have to pay for everything (not me… I'm talking about my whipped, neutered, stupid enough to get married to lazy, whiney bitches - friends), I mean… renting whores makes more sense (which is what a wife is anyway).



  15. 15

    perez! wtf, you are always writing post about how excited you are about this movie! you are one odd guy.



  16. 16

    Proves that people are impressed with mediocracy!! The first SATC movie sucked ass and this one doesn't look much better. Taste people, really!!

  17. k-lee says – reply to this


    17

    well fuck you for making that comment. who the fuck are you to tell women what to like and what not to like? what's wrong with wanting to feel fabulous? you of all people!



  18. 18

    DUDE you have it completely wrong re: this movie.
    YES the first one was average. YES a lot of women went to see it. AND YES this better-freaken-be-the-last-one.
    BUUUUUT it is still Sex and the City, and has everyone who is ragging on this movie forgotten how amazing the original series was?? How groundbreaking and fabulous? How gay-friendly??
    When a something is as loved as Sex and the City, that love and loyalty doesn't just disappear because of a few years of distance and a film that ONLY didn't meet expectations because the original show was so perfect…
    Gosh I can't wait for it, even though I am sure it will be of less quality than the first. I am holding out for the final scene, though, cos if they do it as right as the finale of the series ("You've Got The Love" playing out the final credits= Genius) then it will be something special.

    P.S. Please no more about those fucking retarded 15-minutes-of-famewhores the Gosselins!!! They actually make me sick, and I don't even live in America so I'm not even subjected to their horrifying ubiquity like y'all are (Thank Fuck). Gawd, one has a small cock, and the other wants to be congratulated for not having abortions. Why are they famous!! Puke.



  19. 19

    Exactly Fatties… Either a non gay person wrote this or as always, Perez holding a grudge against one of the stars or all, for nt talking to him. The first movie was great. Excited about this one.. Perez is a dick..



  20. 20

    i loved the first movie!



  21. 21

    And Fuck you K-Lee for having such low, low, low expectations.



  22. 22

    Perez, since when did SATC become solely for middle aged housewives?
    Apparently tweeting to your 'tween army and investing in that STUPID fashion blog (which you are amptly unqualified to run) has really taken you out of the loop!

    SATC is a classic with the most of the people (ages 25 and up!) who quit reading your moronic blog that's just a less entertaining regurgitation of what your assistants are reading on OTHER more humorous celebrity blogs.

    SATC is fabulous, and I agree with "Fatties", you're some kind of new hybrid of gay, because all of my gays (who are legion) are DYING to see this new movie and want nothing more than to sneak in a cosmo and watch it on the big screen with me.

    I can't wait until your fan-base grows up, I've noticed your comments are taking a hard hit, what are your numbers like these days? Advertisers should be reticent to invest, your spotlight in waning, honey.



  23. 23

    No gay man hates ladies so much. Who the hell are you??? You´re not Mario, that is for sure.



  24. 24

    Nice try, Perez.



  25. 25

    This series gave women the wrong idea. It's fictitious, yet women followed it like it was gospel. I've kicked dozens of women to the curb (after nailing them) because they had the attitudes of these 'actors' from this very show. The illusion they live under of being independent, self-assured (ie: insecure), etc. Pretty funny stuff (ie: pathetic) really. LOL! As the end of the day, the ladies being 'self-empowering' (lol), are old, used and haggard… the guys just start poking the 18 year olds all over again… the 'cougars' can have the young guys… they don't know how to fuck anyway. And the guys end up with all the money (as they're the #1 income earners in the world anyway - WATCH - someone will point out Oprah or Ellen to me here in a second… LOL!). Sorry ladies… you lose.



  26. 26

    I am so one of those ladies. I loved the series, the first movie and I hope this one is even better!
    Going to make an event out of it because I AM fabulous, asswipe!

  27. fiona says – reply to this


    27

    It is all marketing for a lameass sequel.

    Grannies gone wild!



  28. 28

    i'm going to watch it on video but that doesn't mean i think the women who are making an event out of it are dumb. i mean it sounds like they're going to have a good time. some people can't go out clubbing all the time. seems like harmless fun with friends. is that not allowed in america anymore?



  29. 29

    I was a hugh fan of the series, but this movie looks goofy as hell. And I don't know why Kick-Ass didn't do better. That movie really was, well, kick ass.



  30. 30

    perez, what is up your ass? this movie made a great deal of money, domestic and international receipts were pretty amazing. you need to stop being such an ass hole about those "middle aged housewives" as many of them are reading your blog. should be careful as i hear another blog is coming out soon that has industry ties.



  31. 31

    SEX AND THE CITY, 2. REVENGE OF THE COUGAR MUMMIES…..COMING SOON!!!!



  32. 32

    i take offense to this perez. i am indeed a middle aged house wife who lives somewhat vicarously through the lives of celebrities…but if it is us housewives that push the celebrity overload in this country, then you better cater to us because we are a big part of the reason you are famous. Please don't say Barf to your biggest fans.:(



  33. 33

    Perez, you're an idiot. You talk smack smack smack about something that is a great escape. The original movie was great too. Funny. Quick and gave every one a little of what they wanted from each of the characters. This one will be no different. Rest assured that your staff writers have no clue what this movie will be like and do not speak for the community at large. Every person I know gay or st8 wants to see this movie for the fun it will be. Perez you can stay home in your old Toyota and pray the mats don't move.

  34. sbabe says – reply to this


    34

    Perez, I am diappointed in you. The first movie was great and I have watched it several times with a melonchaly feeling. You have to get that us 'old' housewives grew up in our twenties to this show and each of us feels cvonnected to parts of all the characters. They are the women we know, women we were and women we felt like through all the relationship learnings. Maybe you have to be a girl to understand it, and thats's Ok. It is ours–leave it be.

  35. sbabe says – reply to this


    35

    Sex and The City rocks!



  36. 36

    I'll say this for SJP she can wear fashion like no one else. See her legs in the poster come on even if it's a little photoshop La Lindsey could not pull that one off. And as far as age goes check out Hollywood young set and they are getting botox in their twenties. I'm in my early 30's and need nothing! But,
    these women take care of themselves. Go girls!!!



  37. 37

    Are you kidding?? The movie made me want to watch the show.



  38. 38

    Sex & the City, (the first movie), not as good as the series?

    Uh, Gilles Marini's horse cock in the shower sequences, please!!!

    Mygod, that was worth sitting through watching Charlotte crap in her pants.

    (And you never did get to see a really good piece of meat in the t.v. show).

    And this sequel had only better have a series of camel-schlonged young men in it as far as I'm concerned.

    You bring the story to Abu Dhabi, you better show some swingin'Arab schlongs is all I can say.

    (Otherwise I want a refund).

    But you discount that STYLE goes a long way when it comes to escapist flicks.

    If we're going to be honest, lots of James Bond movies are nothing without the great music, cool cars, staggering aerial shots and Bond in a bulging blue square cut swim suit.

    Horse dicks sell movie tickets. Its 2010. Simple fact.



  39. 39

    I just LOVE how Perez is being a hatter but of course a week before it opens he will be advertising it all over his page just like all the other shit he has criticized in the past but shamelessly advertises. Everyone has a price but Perez is afraid to admit. Rant over =]



  40. 40

    Where is the premiere?



  41. 41

    LOL Lady Gaga Shot down by Grace Jones {no copy/ no modify} bahahaha!



  42. 42

    I can't wait to see it!!



  43. 43

    OMFGGG I am SOOOO excited :)



  44. 44

    I am curious…..most guys think SJP is ugly. Why do ladies (and gay guys) think she is hot??



  45. 45

    I can't wait to see this - yay for Carrie Bradshaw!!!!



  46. 46

    I THINK ITS TERRIFIC. WITH THE ECONOMY AND THE DEPRESSION THAT COMES WITH JOBLESSNESS AND FOREBODING ITS GREAT TO HEAR PEOPLE ARE EXCITED TO HAVE A SPECIAL DAY WITH FOUR WOMEN THEY'VE KNOWN FOR YEARS WHO HAVE MADE THEM LAUGH AND CRY AND RELATE TO THEIR PROBLEMS.

  47. Stepy says – reply to this


    47

    I dont know what you are smoking…but the first movie was amazing!!! And I am NOT a middleaged housewife. In fact, all of the people I know who are obsessed with the show AND the last movie are in their early/mid 20's. You seem to be getting VERY out of touch with reality and REAL people, Perez. Getting too Hollywood I guess.

  48. luvvb says – reply to this

    i prefer Golden Girls re-runs.
    all these new versions of evrything thing old has got to STOP!
    in fact, betty white should sue-S I T C. LOL



  49. 49

    WHO EVEN WRITES THIS SITE ANYMORE?



  50. 50

    I loved the first film, I know me and all my friends are going to go see it, the first film was surprisingly well done and def did "hold a candle" to the series - Charlotte shitting herself was the funniest thing I'd seen. I hope they don't push this franchise out too much though cos… well, they are getting old!

  51. Gusto says – reply to this


    51

    WHAT'S WRONG WITH WOMEN ENJOYING A NIGHT OUT YOU F,.,.TARD!!!!! FROM WHAT I SAW, THERE WERE WOMEN OF ALL AGES ENJOYING THE FIRST ONE, NOT JUST MIDDLE AGED WOMEN AND THEY WERE ALL HAVING FUN TOGETHER!!!! WHY DO YOU INSIST ON DIVIDING PEOPLE BASED ON AGE WHEN IT'S NOT LIKE THAT IN THE REAL WORLD?????????? PEOPLE AREN'T AS SHALLOW OR BIGOTED AS YOU……THESE COMMENTS COME FROM A PERSON WHO FIGHTS AGAINST DISCRIMINATION???? HYPOCRITE!

  52. Gusto says – reply to this


    52

    Oh…..and by the way, has anyone noticed this site doesn't get as many comments anymore????



  53. 53

    The first film was great… it had all those feel good moments a girl wants out of a film mixed with a bit of tears! I'd say no wonder tickets for the second 1 r selling like hot cakes… Can't wait for it!



  54. 54

    My guess is that Brainless Barbie was "Perez Hilton" for this blog. I never liked SATC but know a lot of women who loved the whole premise of it and Barbie trust me, they're anything but middle aged housewives.
    *
    The only way "Perez Hilton" would have written this with such disgust is because he abhors gay women and I believe only Cynthia Nixon is gay out of the original girls.
    *
    As for Twilight … wrong again … It is more the sexually charged adolescent or sexually frustrated 20-something female who mainly buys into the Twilight fantasy. The whole Beauty and the Beast thing loses its desire for the average woman after the age of 25.



  55. 55

    can't wait for the movie. the first one was amazing and a great addition to the show.



  56. 56

    nice i am waiting for this



  57. 57

    What are you talking about "middle aged" women. I loved the series and the 1st movie and I am in my 20's. I am hyped for the 2nd movie. I am in talks with all of my friends (ones that live in town and ones that live out of town, within a 3-4 hour driving distnace) about getting together to see this movie. It is going to be fantastic.



  58. 58

    Honestly, it doesn't matter to me what the plot is. I'm just excited to see the ladies back in action again. It's fun, Perez, leave it alone!



  59. 59

    I usually support you Perez but you are so bloody rude sometimes!
    Why add the BARF comment?
    I can't see what's wrong with women feeling fabulous, no matter their age!



  60. 60

    middle aged house wives????? perez you are such a hateful angry person…i would find it safe to assume that's a good portion of your audience as well…go away and stop spreading your hate



  61. 61

    Really..women in a few years will look back at these movies and the series and say: WHAT was I thinking!" You know, just like all the t'weens who used to like Miley Cyrus. The only one with any real talent is Kim Cattrall - check her out in London's West End .



  62. 62

    Those tits in the promo poster - they sure don't look original. Empowering to women, indeed !



  63. 63

    Would it not be cool IF in the movie, one of the characters came out as a dyke - say the red-head, who really is one in real life ? Now, I would go pay good money to something like that - not all those silly costume changes and dumb conversations. And certainly not to see SJP's huge honker of a nose in s-p-e-c-t-r-a-v-i-s-i-o-n …Just say'n. I mean, her nose provides enough shade for a family of six !



  64. 64

    I thought the first movie was fun. I just hope they give Charlotte more to do in this one.



  65. 65

    Re: Be-Atch – Did you not watch the series when Kim Cattrall's character turned to lesbianism for a while???



  66. 66

    Sarah J.P. has such a horse face.



  67. 67

    Re: The Dude! – dude you have serious issues with BITCHES lol



  68. 68

    Aiden!!!



  69. 69

    Re: JulesGules – Yeah…but PERMANENTLY would be waaaaaaay cooler ! Especially if the character got a real she-male butch woman as a boyfriend, as Cynthia Nixon did. Have you seen her partner ? !



  70. 70

    Re: kissmyassobama – That is VERY insulting - to horses ! !



  71. 71

    It's a stupid movie and doesn't do any favour to women when the lead character is a fucking screwed up doormat.



  72. 72

    Too many delusional middle aged women fantasizing about nailing Gilles Marini.



  73. 73

    Re: Orlacc – Excuuuuse me! *snap*. Gay men also think SJP is ugly and lame. The show was interesting because of the other three. You could basically fast forward all of the Carrie scenes without losing much.



  74. 74

    Didn't hold a candle? Are you kidding me? Perez I am disappointed. You have the worst taste sometimes.



  75. 75

    i'm sooo excited about this movie. the 1st one was great, i dont know what movie you saw, Perez.



  76. 76

    For the 3rd movie, SJP won't even bother to invite former cast members. She will play everybody's part because she's so fabulous and doesn't need co-stars weighing her down.



  77. 77

    one word: AIDEN

    enough said. BTW that dress is just FABUULOUS!!

    lollll

    gay stereotypes.



  78. 78

    Re: The Dude! – Never happened, probably you still live with your mommy.
    Get some help, you have serious issues, if you're so …'manly' then what the fuck are you doing here gossiping away ? HAHAHA TWAT !!!



  79. 79

    I cannot wait for the movie. The first one provided such a wonderful girls night out and we had laughter and tears. And this one has Liza!!



  80. 80

    SJP wished she looked that good!



  81. 81

    Sorry I meant to say: SJP WISHES she looks that good!



  82. 82

    Housewife's…..idiot. Quit making up words



  83. 83

    I'll tell you why people are more excited for this one than the first one….because Aiden is coming back!! I was a huge fan of the series (when I was 19 mind you not middle aged) anyway the first movie was not that great and I felt like it wasn't always true to the series. Now comes the second and every girls favorite of Kerri's old boyfriends comes back…and he is so cute. Oh and Perez I'm 26 not 46 you anti feminist…all you do is shit on women..you and your buddy Chris Brown should hang out



  84. 84

    Oh shut up and let people enjoy a film.



  85. 85

    Okay, with all the photoshop going in in that pic, could they not do something about the knees? UGH!



  86. 86

    as much as I can't wait to see the movie i have to agree with you Perez the first movie can't hold a candle to the series.



  87. 87

    The first movie was quite good. Nobody cares about your opinion Perez.



  88. 88

    jealous perez?



  89. 89

    Re: The Dude! – you are horribly misinformed. you can't generalize what a wife is just because of your trashy friends.



  90. 90

    You're a douche.



  91. 91

    Re: FATTIES need to purge – Haha well said



  92. 92

    What Perez? Not enough young teen boys for you to lust over? No Zach Efron for you to get hard for? No Twilight boys for you to jerk off to? You are such a dick.



  93. 93

    hey..its just awesome
