In The Heights has just debuted a firecracker of a trailer. The big screen adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway smash looks sensational, capturing the spirit of the stage musical and featuring an exciting, young cast. The original musical was nominated for 13 Tony Awards, taking home four, including Best Musical. This is as close to a sure thing as Hollywood can get. Well, until Hamilton hits the big screen. Watch the trailer below:
The creator of "Hamilton" and the director of "Crazy Rich Asians" invite you to the event of the summer, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big… "In the Heights."
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.
"In the Heights" fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda's kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu's lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
In The Heights, directed by Jon M. Chu, and starring Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins, Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera, Olga Merediz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Gregory Diaz IV, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco and Jimmy Smits opens in theaters June 26, 2020.
