IN THE HEIGHTS movie finally arrives in movie theaters and on HBO Max this Friday. Warner Bros. has released the first eight minutes of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical adaptation directed by Jon M. Chu.
The IN THE HEIGHTS adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit play stars Anthony Ramos, Jimmy Smits, Lin-Manuel Miranda, "Orange is the New Black's" Dascha Polanco, Vida's Melissa Barrera, Corey Hawkins (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine's” Stephanie Beatriz, and Olga Merediz reprises her role from Broadway. IN THE HEIGHTS will be released in theaters June 18, and on HBO Max.
The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, 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.
