Warner Brothers unveiled its official teaser poster for the Sex and the City sequel with Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie in the white Halston Heritage number that marked the first public sighting of filming in September, and my reaction? A mixture of “Huh?” and “My eyes!”
Love the dress, love the necklace, love the shoes — though I could do without the gold aviators — but there’s nothing subtle about this teaser. It sounds more like it’s screaming at me with that blinding light. (I guess that explains the sunglasses.) I know Carrie isn’t afraid of a little bling, but this looks more like a poster for a New Year’s Eve party or a Hed Kandi album cover come to life.
And where are the other gals? A Warner Brothers rep is not yet sure if teasers featuring Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall will be released, but you may remember from the first SATC that the teaser included just Parker, so it wouldn’t surprise me if this technotronic-futuristic teaser is all we get.
It also seems like the producers just can’t let go of these “Carrie” puns. Last time it was “Get Carried Away”; this time it’s “Carrie On.” It really just reminds me of that amazingly hilarious Saturday Night Live SATC spoof titled, “Carrie On, Bags.”
What do you guys think of the poster? Yay! Or now way?
