Warner Bros. has released not one, but two new trailers for In the Heights, the big screen adaptation of Quiara AlegríaHudes and Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical of the same name.
I’ve never seen the Broadway version of In the Heights (heck, I hadn’t even heard of it until the feature film adaptation was announced), but this looks like it will be a lot of fun. Which should be expected since it hails from the the creative mind behind Hamilton.
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 hits theaters and HBO Max on June 18, 2021.
