New Line has confirmed that Project Runway’s Tim Gunn will appear in the Sex and the City sequel. (E Online first reported the story.) Gunn is currently shooting in New York City and will play himself. This isn’t the first time that Gunn has worked with Sarah Jessica Parker; she appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway in 2007.
Penelope Cruz, Liza Minnelli and Jason Lewis have all recently shot scenes for the sequel, as well.
Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau were a hoot as a pair of single guys in indie comedy Swingers. Thirteen years on, they’ve co-written a comedy about pals who have grown up and married off – but it feels like a less honest, more commercially motivated endeavour.
Four chummy couples fly off to an exotic Pacific island. Only divorcebound Jason (Jason Bateman) and Cynthia (Kristen Bell) are signed up for the ‘couples skill-building’ sessions that then turn out to be compulsory for all.
There’s enjoyable observational humour: parents will recognise stressful scenarios such as children peeing in showroom toilets. But when the eight-strong group (also including Kristin Davis and Malin Akerman, pictured with Vaughn) hit the beach, the script becomes more interested in strung-out set-pieces and laddish (or rather, mannish) humour. Individually many of these actors have charm but crammed together they barely have room to breathe. Men and women are reduced to stereotypes, and Peter Serafinowicz and Jean Reno are wasted in one-note roles.
Vaughn manages to grab more screen time to showcase his charisma but do we really need to watch his midlife crisis unfold over the course of nearly two hours?

The celebrity guest appearances keep on coming for the sequel to the blockbuster Sex and the City film. OK! has learned that Penélope Cruz is the latest A-lister to hop on the Sex and the City 2 bandwagon. The Oscar-winner just filmed a cameo appearance, playing herself on the red carpet.
And while Beyoncé won’t be in the film, her hit song “Single Ladies” will be. OK! has confirmed that stage and screen legend Liza Minnelli sings the song at the wedding of Stanford (Willie Garson) and Anthony (Mario Cantone) — the same wedding where Sarah Jessica Parker plays the best man!.
OK! can also confirm that Miley Cyrus, who had talked openly about wanting to play a young SJP in the rumored prequel, will indeed be filming a cameo in the movie later this week.
Friday night box-office results are in, and Couples Retreat reigns supreme.
1. “Couples Retreat” ($12.3 million)
2. “Zombieland” ($4.75 million)
3. “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” ($3.1 million)
4. “Toy Story” & “Toy Story 2″ (3-D Double Feature) ($2.54 million)
5. “Paranormal Activity” ($2 million)
The cheese stands alone as the Vince Vaughn-starring “Couples Retreat,” the weekend’s only new wide release, debuted on Friday in an expected first place finish at the box office. “Couples Retreat” marks the directorial debut of Peter Billingsley, who is most famous for his childhood portrayal of Ralphie in the classic “A Christmas Story” — apparently, Billingsley didn’t shoot his eye out, because his directorial vision resulted in an $11.5 million Friday opening according to the numbers from Deadline Hollywood Daily.
Still, “Couples Retreat” will have to fight to maintain this top spot in the weeks to come, thanks to poor word of mouth on the film. The reviews have been mediocre at best despite the all-star comedy team of Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau and more. For now, the joke is on theatergoers as “Retreat” is on target for a projected $28 million weekend.
Sony Pictures might have lost the top seat, but the tag-team of “Zombieland” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” still claimed the next highest spots at the box office with $4.8 million and $3 million, respectively. The “Meatballs” train might finally be losing some steam, allowing the “Toy Story” 3-D double feature a very close $2 million Friday in fourth place.
The real surprise story, however, is “Paranormal Activity,” the Oren Peli-directed horror film currently touted as “the scariest movie of all time.” Whether or not the film actually lives up to that description, the Paramount-distributed “Paranormal Activity” could be quite scary for rival studios — the ghost-filled thriller earned an amazing $1.3 million on Friday night in only 159 theaters.
“Paramount is going to make a ton of cash on this pickup,” a rival studio executive told Deadline Hollywood. “They ain’t spending anything on it, and who knows where the ceiling is!”

I have added high quality screen captures from the trailer for, Couples Retreat. The movie opens October 9th and looks quite funny and includes a stellar cast.

Kristin Davis’ boyfriend treats her like a “princess”. The ‘Sex and the City‘ actress’ photographer beau Russell James, who she began dating earlier this year, wants to make her feel as special as possible and has been lavishing her with presents.
A source said: “He is put a lot into making this work. He’s made Kristin a princess and she loves every minute. It’s been terribly passionate and romantic, he showers Kristin with gifts and love notes, like a teenage boy in love.”
Russell has sent bunches of flowers and pearl jewellery to Kristin on the set of the new ‘Sex and the City’ movie – currently being shot in New York – and her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall, are impressed with his attentiveness.
Sarah (Jessica Parker) has been teasing her that she’s being spoilt by Russell. It’s all in good fun and of course everyone is happy for her.
We may best know Kristin Davis as her character Charlotte York on Sex and the City. But, Kristin wants to trade in Manhattan and her stilettos for the wild west and some cowboy boots.
“I just love horses. I want to be the girl on the horse.”
Can you imagine Kristin Davis in a western? I LOVE the idea. She just has a classic look, and I’d love to see her in more than SATC stuff. As for those stilettos? She admitted that they take some getting used to when on the set.
“We get rusty with the walking and talking in high heels. Our feet are killing us. We are not back up to fighting shape and we have to get tough again.”
Hopefully while filming her new movie, Couples Retreat with Vince Vaughn, she got to wear flip flops on the shore of Bora Bora.
Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau have graduated from the bachelor flicks that made them famous (Swingers, Made). Now, they’re tackling that ever-complicated next phase in life: marriage. In Couples Retreat, they join a stellar ensemble cast (including Jason Bateman and Kristin Davis) to explore what makes a relationship work—or not. Don’t be fooled by the trailers, there’s more to this film than just raunchy slapstick. It’s a relatable, but still hilarious, look at relationship ruts and what happens when people take their ordinary problems to an extraordinary location. Plus, the Vince we know and love isn’t totally grown-up—his signature tirades provide some of the film’s most quotable moments.
Couples Retreat opens October 9.
