WILL THERE BE COAT THROWING?: "The Sex and the City" movie has so far outgunned "The Devil Wears Prada" in one big way: It got to shoot in the offices of Vogue one day last week, according to Willie Garson, who is reprising his role as Stanford Blatch in the movie, due to be released in May. Garson revealed the filming inside 4 Times Square at Monday night's party to celebrate the third season of the television series "Iconoclasts." The event was in partnership with Grey Goose Entertainment, Conde Nast Media Group and Sundance Channel. And while Anna Wintour won't show up on screen (not even dressed as Meryl Streep), she did consult on the sequences, according to a spokeswoman for the film, while André Leon Talley and Patrick Demarchelier will make cameo appearances. A spokesman for Vogue declined to comment.

LOVING THE MOVIES FOR THE AD PAGES: A bunch of Condé Nast Publications titles got a nice bump to their ad pages in September from the Fashion Rocks supplement that appeared with their issues, and now 14 of them will get another windfall in their December issues from Movies Rock. The titles getting most of the additional pages in December are Vanity Fair, Vogue, Glamour and W, while Condé Nast Traveller, GQ, Details, Allure, Lucky, Self and even Cookie also will get a nice chunk of pages. A spokeswoman said that, overall, Movies Rock has generated $40 million in revenues from advertisers such as Verizon, Citi, Sony, Chevrolet, Estée Lauder Cos., Dillard's and TRESemmé.

The section was edited by writer-producer Mitch Glazer and Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter served as editorial director. Photographers Bruce Weber, Mark Seliger and Norman Jean Roy have also contributed to the supplement that focuses on the celebrities, directors and musicians involved in the filmmaking process.

Glazer reports on "Shine a Light," the upcoming Rolling Stones concert film, directed by Martin Scorsese. He writes about two performances at New York's Beacon Theatre that had Scorsese hunched over a bank of monitors saying, "I'm gonna vomit," to no one in particular. And Sam Kashner has a piece on the making of "Saturday Night Fever" and how John Travolta almost quit the film after seeing how his biggest solo dance number was edited. The cover, featuring a normally press-shy Bill Murray dressed as an older "Vegas-era" Elvis, was shot by Seliger in New York.
