IN THE HEIGHTS - Official Trailer

  • Turn up the volume on your dreams. #InTheHeightsMovie, only in theaters 2020.

    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” stars Anthony Ramos (“A Star is Born,” Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton,” “BlacKkKlansman”), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s “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 (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Jimmy Smits (the “Star Wars” films).

    Chu is directing the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes; it is based on the musical stage play, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. “In the Heights” is produced by Miranda and Hudes, together with Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs. David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick served as executive producers.

    Behind the camera, Chu is reuniting with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He is also collaborating with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (“Eighth Grade”). The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.”

    “In the Heights” was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights. Slated for release on June 26, 2020, it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

    I still remember when I first saw this. I was on the TV with my family watching youtube and then the trailer appeared as a propaganda and at the beginning of it I didn't pay much attention but then when I read "from the writer of HAMILTON" I literally screamed and accidentally throw my cellphone to the floor. I am as excited as then

    anthony ramos is such a good cast for usnavi (not like lin was) and it makes me so happy that this is becoming a movie. like in the heights was my IT musical, like how hamilton and hadestown is for some people, and it was for about 5-6 years now. like i’m so excited for this and i cried when i saw the trailer came outside.
    also i can name assume what half the songs are based on the parts of the trailer and it makes me so happy to see what they look like!

    In the heights was one of Lin’s creations long before Hamilton
    Movies of musicals also have been done before, just to name a few: phantom of the opera, hairspray, les miserables, etc.
    Movies of musicals aren’t usually something theatre kids take kindly to, the reason I have more hope in this one is because Anthony Ramos is casted for Usnavi, and judging how most of you came from Hamilton you see why this is great news
    I felt the impulse to wright this with how many comments I cringed at

    While promoting His Dark Materials Lin said that the line 'and I'll think of you every night at the same time' in When The Sun Goes Down was inspired from Lyra and Will's promise in The Amber Spyglass and that has made it even more heartbreaking for me.
