We’ve got another new trailer to share with you for WB’s feature film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical In The Heights. It promises to be a magical movie musical experience that tells an uplifting and positive story.
In the film, “Lights up on Washington Heights…The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.”
The movie was directed Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians), and it stars Anthony Ramos (A Star is Born, Broadway’s Hamilton), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, BlacKkKlansman), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (Vida), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s In the Heights), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s Rent), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s Matilda the Musical), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black), and Jimmy Smits (Star Wars).
In the Heights was filmed in New York, on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights, and it will be released in theaters and on HBO Max on June 18th, 2021.
