Hurt by withering reviews and perhaps some bad timing, "Sex and the City 2" – despite its pedigree – came in third place on its opening weekend, grossing less money over five days than the original made in three.
But looking toward a summer dominated by testosterone-fueled films, Warner Bros. is hoping the sequel has legs as long as Carrie and her fashionista friends. And depending on those legs, the studio is not ruling out a third go at it.
Dan Fellman, the studio's head of distribution, acknowledged that many of the women the film targets may have had other plans over Memorial Day weekend. But he also figures his is the only female-driven movie over the next few weeks of summer.
