"Sex and the City" movie will open on Friday in the U.S. after it's world premier at Leicester Square, London, on 12 May.

Four years after the series ended, the movie seeks to address Carrie's relationship with the financier known as Mr. Big.

"Those people who like the show will expect the joy and the good times and the whimsy and the clothes and the cocktails and the salty language," said actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Carrie and also produced the movie and TV series.

The TV series, which ran from 1999 to 2004, have won eight Golden Globes and seven Emmys and made Manolo Blahnik shoes and the Cosmopolitan cocktail household names.

The movie picks up where the series ended -- Carrie and Big are together, Samantha is in Los Angeles with her boy toy, Charlotte and her husband are raising their adopted Chinese daughter and Miranda is in Brooklyn with her husband and son.

The movie had a 65 million U.S. dollars budget and is written and directed by Michael Patrick King. It runs 135 minutes and is distributed by New Line Cinema and HBO Films.

There has been some controversy over the decision to hold the premiere in London rather than New York, the city showcased so beautifully in the series. But Cynthia Nixon, known on screen as Samantha, said Monday's premiere was just a build up to the main event in New York.

"We're having a kind of smallish premiere here (and) we're having a smallish premiere in Berlin. We're building to the New York premiere which is enormous and happens just before the film opens worldwide," she said.
