For way too long now, the concept of #girlpower in comedies has been dominated by white female narratives in which women of color are an afterthought, either playing an assortment of nondescript characters or sassy sidekicks who are always a call away from the white heroine, just waiting to help her solve her problems and win the man. For every How to Be Single, Bridget Jones sequel, He’s Just Not That Into You, and Bridesmaids there are approximately 0.05% (not a real statistic, but it feels like one doesn’t it?) women of color-led comedies out there starring women who aren’t J.Lo. Therefore, Malcolm D. Lee’s Girls Trip feels like the first of its kind: a raunchy, endlessly entertaining comedy written by and starring black women.
Even though it doesn’t seem like Girls Trip is up to much — it has a by-the-numbers plot and a lesson »

Actress Cynthia Nixon said “of course” she would do a third “Sex and the City” movie. Speaking Thursday at TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast in New York, the actress told TheWrap founder and CEO Sharon Waxman that she’d be eager to reprise her Emmy-winning role as Miranda Hobbes. “It holds up. It really holds up,” Nixon said as Waxman joked that “Sex and the City” is probably on TV somewhere at this very moment. Nixon starred with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis in the Manhattan-set comedy “Sex and the City,” which ran on HBO from 1998 to 2004 before spawning two feature. »

More than 30 years later, John Carpenter is returning to Little China. The filmmaker and Anthony Burch are co-writing the new comic-book series “Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack” alongside Anthony Burch, with Jorge Corona contributing art. Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall and Dennis Dunn starred in the 1986 film, one of the “Halloween,” “Escape from New York” and “The Thing” director’s many cult classics.
Here’s the synopsis: “The year is 2020, and hell is literally on Earth. Ching Dai, sick of relying on screw-ups like Lo Pan to do his bidding, has broken the barriers between Earth and the infinite hells, and declared himself ruler of all.
“Sixty-year-old Jack Burton is alone in a tiny corner of Florida with only his broken radio to talk to, until one day it manages to pick up a message. »

Greg Wise and Billy Campbell are set to join Kim Cattrall in the second season of Swedish thriller Modus. Originated by TV4's streaming service C More where it debuts this fall, Modus is produced by Miso Film and adapted from Norwegian lawyer Anne Holt's book, Frukta Inte. The first season followed psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik (Melinda Kinnaman) as she found herself, and her autistic daughter, drawn into an investigation surrounding a series of disturbing… »
Cynthia Nixon has won two Tony awards and a Grammy, but the actress, who played Nancy Reagan in National Geographic’s “Killing Reagan,” realizes she will best be known for the role that gave her an Emmy: Miranda Hobbes, the no-nonsense lawyer on HBO’s “Sex and the City.” “I have had many, many great and exciting projects that have meant the world to me and to audiences, but I have never had that intersection of a show that is both so artistically terrific and so wildly popular,” she says. Here, she recalls the “out-of-body experience” of winning that Emmy in 2004.
You seem genuinely shocked that you won.
I was just completely flabbergasted. It was our very last season. None of us had ever won Emmys as actors before. I think myself and a lot of other people thought that if one of the supporting actresses was going to win it was going to be Kim Cattrall.

Actress Kim Cattrall has revealed that she “does not depend on Hollywood for jobs anymore.” Cattrall told BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire that she doesn’t want to be perceived as “a very, very older woman” at the age of 60. “I’m not ready to play someone who is grotesque. Either from being thought of as a very, very older woman, at […] »

Where's Carrie Bradshaw's tutu?
Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker posted a video to Instagram on Friday that was obtained by Entertainment Weekly of what almost was the opening sequence to the hit HBO series. The opening that fans know and love shows Carrie (Parker) walking down a New York City street wearing a pink tank top and white tutu, but as she starts to find her stride, a bus -- which happens to have a huge ad with Carrie's face on it, promoting her Sex and the City column -- pulls into a puddle and splashes her.
“Lost footage. The alternate and never used title sequence from "Satc" A really nice memory,” Parker captioned the clip.
The alternate opener plays out a little differently, right down to the outfit. Carrie again is walking down the street, but this time »
No one was clamoring for a remake of 1987’s “Mannequin,” but James Corden and Victoria Beckham made it happen anyway. The two collaborated on a trailer for the non-existent updated version of the Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall cult classic. Oh, and they also fit in some Spice Girls “Carpool Karaoke,” so there’s that. Watch the video above.

The former Spice Girl appeared alongside the CBS funnyman in a mock trailer for Mannequin, a “reboot” of the 1987 film starring Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall. In the clip, Beckham takes a drive with Corden, paving the way for a brief duet on the 1997 Spice Girls hit “Spice Up Your Life.”

Victoria Beckham and James Corden put a hilarious new spin on “Carpool Karaoke” on Thursday’s Late Late Show! “Victoria and I have the oddest thing in common,” Corden announced. “We are both huge fans of the ‘80s movie Mannequin.” Such big fans are the British stars of the 1987 Andrew McCarthy-Kim Cattrall film, in fact, […] »
James Corden put a fun twist on "Carpool Karaoke" Thursday night. The Late Late Show host and fashion designer Victoria Beckham filmed an '80s movie parody that—for a brief but wonderful moment—featured one of his show's most popular segments. Didn't see Kim Cattrall's camp classic Mannequin? Allow the narrator to explain the premise: "He was a talk show host, and she was a mannequin who turned his world upside down. To everyone else, he's a disaster. The world couldn't understand their love. Like, really couldn't understand their love. No, seriously—they didn't get it. Their love wasn't meant for this world." Beckham—whose only »
“Victoria and I have the oddest thing in common,” Corden announced. “We are both huge fans of the ‘80s movie Mannequin.”

Beckham, of course, stepped in for the Cattrall role, playing a mannequin that comes to life, but only Corden’s character can see her. Everyone else just thinks the late night host has lost his mind and is romancing a dress form with a wig.

Adele's trainer has the remedy for your diet woes. When it comes to star quality, there are few who don't know the Grammy-winning songstress. When she wants to put her best foot—and physique—forward, she turns to the advice of her trainer, Pete Geracimo, who is a big fan of the SirtFood Diet. Having trained with the likes of the British musician, Kate Middleton's famous sister Pippa Middleton and Sex and the City's Kim Cattrall, the health and fitness pro has a wildly recognizable roster of clients to his name. So, when he publicly praises a new way of approaching food, we listen. Having been involved in the creation of Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten's »
Sarah Jessica Parker trolled Attorney General Jeff Sessions with an Instagram post on Thursday that perfectly channeled Carrie Bradshaw. The actress posted a photo of her “Sex and the City” character hard at work on a New York Star piece. She completed the meme with the following written words: “I couldn’t help but wonder … had the Russian ambassador been meeting with everybody but me?” Can’t you just hear 1999 Manhattan’s most fashionable columnist performing that voiceover? At least Samantha (Kim Cattrall) didn’t sleep with the dude (we hope). Also Read: Colbert Uncovers Jeff Sessions' Day Planner »

Let me start off by saying that sure, I can picture it more than Donald Trump, ba dum ching! But seriously, when I found out that Kim Cattrall joined the cast of Swedish detective series Modus for its second season taking on the role of the U.S. president who arrives in Stockholm for a state visit, I was a little shocked. “I am pleased to be joining the Modus production in their second season and am looking forward to spending time in Sweden, a country I have always wanted to visit,” said Cattrall. “As a fan of the great Swedish

From Sex and the City to crime and the Swedish capital.
Kim Cattrall has joined the cast of Swedish detective series Modus for its second season, taking on the role of the U.S. president who arrives in Stockholm for a state visit. The trip takes a turn for the worst, with "devastating consequences," according to a description in the casting announcement on Wednesday.
"I am pleased to be joining the Modus production in their second season and am looking forward to spending time in Sweden, a country I have always wanted to visit," said Cattrall. "As a fan »

It’s the dearest hope of every Manolo-wearing, Cosmopolitan-guzzling, serial-dating Sex and the City lover out there that one day, their four favorite ladies will reunite on-screen just one more time.
It’s a dream that’s been stoked by the cast members themselves – many times. They’ll bring our hopes up, and then they’ll come crashing down again. Sarah Jessica Parker will say there’s a chance, and then Chris Noth will say he’s done. Really, it’s like the Big-Carrie saga all over again.
Kristin Davis recently sat down with People Now and said of the franchise, »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)
This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?
Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment
I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone »

Riseborough plays a serial imposter, who becomes perilously close to losing her entire identity — and the only person who’s ever truly loved her — when her elaborate lies inevitably unravel.
