Given the choice between riding a camel in fancy clothes and trudging through desert sand dunes, Kristin Davis says she’d pick the former — and, as it happens, she does both in Sex And The City 2.
Kristin and her SATC castmates Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon are shown in the new trailer for the sequel hitching rides on a pair of camels on location in Morocco (a stand-in for Abu Dhabi, where most of the glittery plot is staged).
“Fun! Really, really fun,” Kristin told Crushable about the experience. “My outfit is actually the most camel-friendly outfit, I’m happy to say. I had pants on! Shocking, shocking news to everyone, I know. But you know, there were some challenges. Walking in the sand dunes was a lot harder than riding a camel, just so you know. Walking in any shoes at all in a sand dune is very challenging!”
The movie arrives May 27, and hype is building: Carrie runs into Aidan (John Corbett) in a bazaar! Charlotte has another baby! And — spoiler alert — Samantha is still having lots of sex.
“Charlotte has her other child, that’s about all I can say!” said Kristin about her alter ego’s super-secret storyline. “The movie’s totally different. It’s a roadtrip movie — we go on a trip, obviously. It’s a completely different tone.”
Compared with the 2008 film — which focused on Carrie’s devastating breakup from Mr. Big (Chris Noth) — the follow-up seems to be more of a frothy, light-hearted romp.
“I think so! I feel like there’s been a little bit — a kind of an over-focus on that,” she said. “It obviously has some … you know, like we always did, even in our half-hour version. (Editor’s note: We translate “you know” to mean “drama.”). It had both in it. It’s not like it’s all yuk-yuk, ha-ha! But it’s more of a fish-out-of-the-water, cultural-type story than it is just a New York-what’s-happening-in-our-lives story.”
