‘Sex’ Slips, While Sarah Jessica Parker Greets Japanese Fans

Sarah Jessica Parker was greeted by a deluge of fans at the Narita Airport earlier today in Japan. Parker is on her international promotional tour for the Sex and the City sequel.

While no international box office figures have been released yet, the film is underperforming just a tad at the U.S. box office.

Sex and the City 2 sold $46.3 million worth of tickets during its first four days of release across North America, falling far short of the opening round for the first film in the series, according to studio estimates issued on Sunday.

Warner Bros’ first-big screen adaptation of the HBO series about four New York women earned $57 million in its first three days two years ago. “Yes, I would love to have seen a bigger number, but I’m not concerned until I see how the second weekend plays out,” said Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution at the Time Warner Inc unit.
