We've all been counting down the days until Sex and the City 2
hits the big screen. We've seen the posters, watched the trailer about 10 times (a day), and have been paying attention to every claim that the wardrobe budget for the flick was enough to buy a small island. Needless to say, we're pumped for May 27 to roll around. Kim Cattrall
, who plays the fiesty Samantha Jones in the series, says she was blown away by the script the first time she read it, so now we're even more excited. The 'SATC' girls are back -- next week. (Photo Agency)
She said: "I read the script and I sent director Michael Patrick King a text. I used two words that began with 'F' and the second was 'fabulous'. I said to him, 'You've done it. You've really taken what was so fabulous about the series and what we needed to do in the first movie - which was to set everything up again - and brought something so fresh and new to Sex and the City 2
. I think what we've gone back to is just seeing the girls."
The 53-year-old actress is joined in the show by Sarah Jessica Parker
, Kristin Davis
and Cynthia Nixon
- who play a group of friends living in New York City.
Kim believes the upcoming sequel to the 2008 box office hit will lift the spirits of those who need to "have some fun".
She explained: "It's a fish out of water, it's a road picture, it's fun. And we need to have some fun right now, you know things are rough out there for so many people. This is a joyous movie about women having a fantastic time. Also dealing with life issues but also having a lot of fun. I read it and I went, 'Phew. It's really good and funny.' "
